Lazio Roma vs AS Roma [Recap, February 9th]

The local derby between Lazio Roma and AS Roma ended in a goalless draw that might have put their hopes for the Serie A title to a rest. We lost the bet we placed on them to win with odds from Ladbrokes, and even though AS Roma was supposed to be declared the winner, Lazio looked like a tough nut to crack.

Roma was the overall better team of the two sides, with 60% ball possession, four shots on target and 11 shots wide, but the goal opportunities that were missed made the visitors settle for just one point. Edy Reja extended his team’s unbeaten record to six games, while ending Roma’s same number of wins. Both team’s starting eleven had three strikers, even though Postiga and Ederson were out injured.

Daniele de Rossi and Francesco Totti started both for Roma, and considering the rivalries between the two, heavy tackles were at the order of the day, but surprisingly enough there were only five yellow card bookings, three for Lazio and two for AS Roma. The hosts were more dangerous in the first half when Alvaro Gonzalez tried to break the deadlock, but his shot flew way over the box.

Lazio looked at peace with the draw, and settled back into the defense even with the midfielders, while Roma kept attacking and expecting Lazio to commit mistakes, yet it was Bastos from Roma who should have left his ego at home and pass the ball to one of his teammates who were unmarked, yet he decided to fire the cross himself, and it was easily cleared.

Result: -6 units, bet lost
