Lazio have not lost any of their last 5 games, 3 of which were away from home, and they also showed impressive resilience to beat Sampdoria 3-0 in what was supposed to be a balanced fixture.Bar the Coppa Italia final, this is probably the most important meeting between the two Roman sides in recent years. Even though previous meetings have happened closer to the end of the season, this one actually sees the clubs separated by just one place, and 9 points to be fair to Roma.Even with a victory here, Lazio will not be able to fight for the title, and Roma will still be 6 points clear of their rivals. Still, the satisfaction of stopping their neighbours and moving them just a little closer is enough motivation for Lazio to give all they have. Roma will be the more confident of the two after securing 3 points away at Udinese, but they also need to manage their energy as they have limited options for rotation.
