The wait is over, and the Capital Derby is almost upon us. Lazio and Roma face off in a fundamental, direct confrontation that will say a lot about the race for a place in the Champions League for both teams. The Romans arrive with two different minds at the match because only the Giallorossi have moved forward in Europe, but these are separate games and what happened before counts for little. The Biancocelesti said goodbye to the Conference League this week and can now focus only on the championship, but the bad performance in the Netherlands against AZ Alkmaar could leave some aftermath. The Eagles have recently struggled to express their game and are really not very concrete in the goal area. The numbers say that Maurizio Sarri’s team has never scored more than one goal in the last 6 official matches.
After beating Real Sociedad and making it to the quarterfinals of the Europa League, José Mourinho’s Roma know a few more things for sure. They are proving to be a solid and concrete team, especially after having recovered so many players from injuries. Dybala and his teammates are therefore full of confidence, but they have to be careful because sometimes there is a drop in concentration, as happened with Sassuolo. In the first leg, it ended with the victory of Lazio, but there were many absentees. This time the only starter in doubt is Ciro Immobile, who however hopes to make it to at least start from the bench.
After suffering a 2-1 defeat to AZ in their most recent encounter in the Conference League, Lazio will be hoping for a better outcome here.
In recent years, Lazio’s attacking statistics haven’t exactly been anything to write home about. During their previous six matches, they have scored a total of four goals while playing against other teams. During those contests, Lazio has conceded a total of 4 goals, bringing the total number of goals scored against them to 4.
Roma’s most recent game, which was played against Real Sociedad in the Europa League, ended in a scoreless draw.
During that match, Roma held only 24% of the possession and had 3 shots on goal, but none of them were on target. Real Sociedad had a total of 19 shots on goal, but only three of them were on target.
The Roma team managed by José Mourinho has had a total of nine of their shots on target turn into goals over the course of their most recent slate of matches. There have been a total of six goals scored against them in those encounters, bringing the total number of goals scored against them to six.
Lazio vs Roma Predicted XI
Lazio Predicted XI: Provedel; Marusic, Casale, Romagnoli, Hysaj; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Alberto; Pedro, Anderson, Zaccagni.
Roma Predicted XI: Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Zalewski, Cristante, Matic, Spinazzola; Pellegrini, Dybala; Abraham.
Although it’s hard to pick a winner here, we get the impression that Roma and Lazio will both have the ability to find the back of the net at some point during this match.
It is looking more and more likely that it will wind up being a tie. As a result, we are of the opinion that it will be a very close contest, with the score ending in a 1-1 tie at the conclusion of the contest.
Inter host Juventus at the Meazza stadium in the Italian derby, which closes the 27th round of Serie A. Both teams are returning from the round in Europe. Inter drew 0-0 against Porto, detaching the pass for the quarterfinals of the Champions League by virtue of the first leg victory in Milan. While Juventus won 2-0 against Freiburg at the Europa-Park Stadion and will play in the quarterfinals of the Europa League. In the league, however, the Nerazzurri suffered a surprise defeat against Spezia, while the Bianconeri beat Sampdoria 4-2 at the stadium.
Inter are in second place in the standings with 50 points, a good 18 less than leaders Napoli, while at the moment Juventus are seventh, but pending the appeal to the Sports Guarantee College, there is the possibility that the 15-point penalty is cancelled. The precedents are on Juve’s side; Allegri will have to dose his energies after the away match in the Europa League and will not be able to count on Kean, who will serve the second day of disqualification. Still in doubt is Di Maria from the first minute, and Chiesa was decisive in the final in Germany. Vlahovic has unlocked himself in Europe and now wants to confirm himself in the league; Pogba, Alex Sandro, and Milik are still out; Bonucci and Miretti are to be evaluated. Inzaghi should confirm the 352 with Lukaku and Lautaro in attack. Absent Skriniar, Dumfries-Darmian ballot right. Bastoni stopped with a problem in his left thigh and will be out for two weeks; Gosens is also out due to injury.
Inter Milan WWLWLD
Inter Milan’s last Champions League game against Porto ended in a 0-0 tie.
During that game, Inter Milan had 32% possession of the ball and 11 shots on goal, with 5 of those shots hitting the goal. Porto, the team they were playing against, had 21 shots on goal, with 7 of them landing on target.
The recent scorelines that the Inter Milan defense has posted shed light on the reality that this has been an excellent time for the team’s defense. Inter Milan’s defense has been quite stingy lately, as a result of which only four goals have been scored against them in the last six matches that they have competed in.
Juventus will enter the match having just come off a victory in their most recent match, which they played in the Europa League and which they won 0-2 against Freiburg.
During that game, Juventus held a possession percentage of 48% and had 15 shots on goal, with 8 of them landing on target. On the other side of the field, Freiburg had 12 shots on goal, only four of which were on target.
The Juventus team, coached by Massimiliano Allegri, has scored 14 goals over the course of their most recent six matches, which has resulted in an average of 2.33 goals tallied per game.
Before this game, Juventus hadn’t beaten Inter Milan in either of the previous two league matches that took place outside of Inter Milan’s home stadium.
Inter Milan vs Juventus Predicted XI
Inter Milan Predicted XI: Onana; Darmian, De Vrij, Acerbi; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Martinez, Lukaku.
Juventus Predicted XI: Szczesny; Danilo, Bremer, Rugani; De Sciglio, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Di Maria; Vlahovic.
We think that Juventus will need a number of things to go their way before they can score a goal against Inter Milan. We also think that Inter Milan has a good chance of scoring at least once to take the lead.
Taking all of this into consideration, we believe that it will be a very close game, with Inter Milan emerging victorious by a score of 1-0 when all is said and done.
In the Superclasico of the 26th round of La Liga, at the Nou Camp, Barcelona hosts Real Madrid in a direct clash at the top of the table. The hosts are already sensationally out of Europe following their elimination in the Europa League play-off against Manchester United.

Decisive Benzema, the man most feared by the Blaugrana fans, while in the last round of the championship the Blancos prevailed 3-1 against Espanyol. This is the Classic number 253 in official matches; the first is dated 1916 in the semi-final of the Spanish Cup. The previous ones leaned slightly on Real’s side, but this time the 9-point difference in the standings could make the difference in favor of Barcelona. For Ancelotti, it risks being the last chance to reopen the championship discussion, a probable 433 with the offensive trident. Valverde, Benzema, and Vinicius Junior. In midfield, Modric, Camavinga, and Kroos. The same game system is available to Xavi, who can count on the scoring ability of striker Lewandowski, who has already scored 15 goals this season. Together with him, Raphinha and Gavi form the offensive trident.
Following on from their previous performance, Barcelona will be hoping for more of the same after claiming a 1-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao in the La Liga competition.
In that game, Barcelona held possession for 63% of the time and had 10 shots on goal, with 2 of them finding the goal. Athletic Bilbao, the team that they were playing against, had 15 attempts on goal, with 5 of them landing in the net.
Five out of the last six matches that Barcelona has been a part of have finished with fewer than three goals scored on average. During this time, Barcelona scored six goals and the other teams scored three.
Before this match, Barcelona had not suffered a loss in any of their previous 12 league encounters played inside their own stadium.
Real Madrid WDLDWW
Real Madrid enters this match on the heels of a Champions League victory against Liverpool, in which they defeated the English team 1-0.
During that game, Real Madrid had 54% of the possession of the ball and 17 shots on goal, with 8 of those shots finding the goal. Liverpool, the team they were playing against, had 9 shots on goal, with 5 of them hitting the objective.

Real Madrid Predicted XI: Szczesny; Danilo, Bremer, Rugani; De Sciglio, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Di Maria; Vlahovic.
Real Madrid might be able to score a goal against this Barcelona lineup, but we don’t think it will be enough to prevent them from losing. Nevertheless, we think it’s possible that Real Madrid will be able to score.
We anticipate that there will be goals scored by both sides, with Barcelona emerging victorious with a final score of 2-1.
