Lazio vs Roma for the Italian Serie A championship match on Sunday at Olimpico Stadium.
The home team, Lazio, enters this new match of the championship of Italy following a good start of this (short) campaign in the competition, after a very positive triumph and notable even on Sampdoria ground, a team that is not always easy to beat on their stadium, and last season also finished in the first half of the leaderboard.
In this meeting Inzaghi’s formation was presented with a very vertical football and putting many men on the opposing ground, managing to win 3-0.
The Roma team, which is in this new season guided by Portuguese coach Paulo Fonseca, did not enter with the best form in official league matches in Italy, with the team slipping, at home, against Genoa, in a draw with three goals each, in which many of the weaknesses on the part of the Roman ensemble have been revealed.
They scored first but ended up suffering the equalizer goal, this despite having had a higher offensive initiative concerning their opponent but failing to be assertive enough to ensure the 3 points.
This is the big game this matchday two of Serie A, besides being a match between the two big rivals of the city of Rome, between two squads which, given their respective coaches, tend to present themselves with a football of high offensive capacity.
Always looking (or at least trying) to practice good football, fluid and with less defensive worries, as was the case on the previous round, I think we can very well have a goal-packed match here, not only for what I said above but also because rivalry itself fosters a great deal of aggression and motivation and this can lead both locals and visitors to be more assertive at the time of finishing.
