Lazio And Roma Are Competing For Fifth Place In Serie A

May 05, 2022

Two city rivals, Lazio and Roma are involved in the battle for fifth place in the Serie A standings to secure a place in the Europa League. Maurizio Sarri's side beat Spezia and Jose Mourinho's side was held to a draw with Bologna last weekend.

The competition between Lazio and Roma in the second half of the 2021/22 season is fierce, with Lazio on 28 points and Roma on 27. According to Il Messaggero, the two teams have never been more than four points apart this season. With 17 wins, 8 draws and 10 losses, they have achieved the same record in the league. The two also beat each other in the derby, which shows the balance between the two teams.

The Aquile are the second most efficient team in attack, scoring 70 goals, four behind Inter, while Roma has struggled to stay productive with 55 goals this season.

In contrast, Maurizio Sarri's side has struggled defensively, conceding 53 goals compared to their city counterparts, 13 goals more than Jose Mourinho's team until week 35 of the 2021/22 Serie A season.

With just three games remaining on the season, the battle for fifth is getting harder. The Aquile's remaining three are against Sampdoria, Juventus, and Verona. Meanwhile, the Giallorossi will face Fiorentina, Venezia, and Torino and are still competing in the European Conference League.
