Second placed AS Roma continue their push to finish behind leaders Juventus with a derby against SS Lazio who are also impressing in the Serie A this season.

AS Roma have 75 points after 33 games, 4 more than 3rd placed Napoli.

They are currently unbeaten in their last 6 games, and won 5 of those encounters.

Their home form is also impressive – they have won 4 of their last 5 home games in all competitions including a win against their current opponent SS Lazio in the Coppa Italia semifinal second leg.

They scored at least 2 goals in those victories, and a single goal in their last home game which was a draw.

They know that if they drop points in this game, they will allow Napoli close in on them, and add unnecessary pressure to their end of season form.

Lazio have lost only 2 of their last 6 games, winning 3 and drawing 2.

Their overall away form is not too bad as they have won 5 of their last 8 away games in all competitions.

However most recently, they have won only 1 of their last 3 away games, losing 1 and drawing the other.

They have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 away games regardless of the final result.

Roma (probable): Szczesny; Rudiger, Manolas, Fazio, Emerson; Paredes, Strootman; Salah, Nainggolan, El Shaarawy; Dzeko

Lazio (probable): Strakosha; Wallace, De Vrij, Radu; Basta, Parolo, Biglia, Milinkovic-Savic, Lulic; Felipe Anderson, Immobile
