There are two important derbies scheduled this Saturday in Italian Serie A and one of them will take place at Olimpico, with AS Roma hosting Lazio from 19:45, UK Time.
AS Roma are in top form, winning the last four league matches. Even so, they are out of top four right now, having a match in hand. Roma have 15 points out of 18, but with a match in hand, as we said. Their attack did very well so far, scoring 14 goals in six games, while the defense impressed too, with only four goals conceded (second best defense in Italy). Their lsat defeat this campaign was at home, 1-3 vs Inter at the end of August.
Surprisingly or not, Napoli are leading the table after the first seven rounds, having maximum number of points, two more than Juventus and Inter Milano. They also have the best goal difference in the country, hitting the net 25 times and conceding only five goals. Both sides are in top form, coming here after excellent runs in all competitions. Last season meetings produced seven goals. Roma won 3-1 away and Napoli won 2-1 here.
