ROM vs LAZ: Match Preview
The Giallorossi ushered a new era under Jose Mourinho and there is a lot of optimism around the club. They are currently seventh in the table with 48 points. They would have wanted to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League. However, that seems unlikely at the moment but the fifth place is still up for grabs as it would guarantee a place in the Europa League next season.

But Lazio have currently occupied that spot with 49 points. The Biancocelesti just their rivals Roma also ushered a new era under Maurizio Sarri. The former Napoli manager is known for his attacking style of football. The same is also reflected in the table, so far only Inter Milan(61) has managed to score more goals than Lazio (58) in Serie A this season. However, it is their defensive fragility that has cost them points. In the top seven teams in Serie A, they have conceded the most number of goals (42).
We have previously seen how the managers like their teams to be. We also saw how Chelsea and Manchester United clashed with each other under these two managers. Thus there should be no surprises in how both the teams will play. Roma under Mourinho will be more defensive and they will try to use the space in behind Lazio’s defence. While Sarri’s Lazio will try to suffocate the home side and try to pin them.

ROM vs LAZ Live: Players to Watch out for
Lorenzo Pellegrini (AS Roma)
The Italian international seems to be really enjoying life under new manager Jose Mourinho. He is also an Italian and he understands the significance of this game. Not only this he is also the creative outlet for the Giallorossi and he will have to man-mark Lucas Leiva who be at the centre of things. During Sarri’s time at Chelsea, Jorginho would often be man-marked by teams and it would work for them. A similar tactic could be deployed by Mourinho as well.
Sergej Miliinkovic-Savic (Lazio)
With Lucas being man-marked, Savic might have to drop deep to build up the play. He will also have to contribute both in attack and defence as well. When he drops deep he will have to find passes further up the pitch. Then he will have to join the attack and reach the box to add more bodies inside the box. In case Roma is able to win the ball, he will also have to help his side defend on the counterattack.
