Roma are the designated away side in today’s Rome derby and after their stunning success against Barcelona they can claim another win over fierce rivals Lazio.
Lazio were also involved in midweek European action but unlike their neighbours they were on the wrong end of a comeback, having allowed a first leg 4-2 lead slip away at Red Bull Salzburg on Thursday as they went down 4-1.
Both sides have 60 points and are pushing for Champions League football, and Roma can take a step towards Europe’s top tournament with a victory.
The Giallorossi are unbeaten in seven on the road in Serie A and have won four of their last five. Roma have also won the last three Serie A derbies where they have been the away side and at 29/20 to claim the win are my top bet today, as they should be the team with the momentum in this huge Italian fixture.
Earlier today in the Bundesliga Schalke host Borussia Dortmund in a fixture which may well decide who claims second spot behind Bayern Munich. The Royal Blues disappointed last weekend with a 3-2 loss at Hamburg but at home they have been in fine form, with four successive victories and just one defeat in their last nine league outings.
BVB are winless in four on their travels and were thrashed 6-0 by Bayern in their last away game. Schalke look good value at 17/10 and they should be able to claim three points and consolidate their place as best of the rest in Germany’s top flight.
