Roma had some slumps in the results during this season, but as the sports betting experts predicted they present the only real threat to Juventus in Italy.

While choosing a bet it’s worth keeping in mind that these clubs have already met this season. Back in early December Roma got a convincing 2-0 win. By the way, the betting experts pay attention to the fact that the Giallorossi have 4 wins in a row in the head-to head encounters with the Eagles. What’s more, they are on the 7-match unbeaten streak. Taking into account their brilliant form and the absence of the major selection concerns except for Florenzi, they have good chances to progress to the final.

The bookmakers think Roma have more chances to get an overall victory after both semi-final games: 1,65 against 2,24. Spalletti’s team are also an overdog of the first leg: Lazio – 3,10, Draw – 3,40, Roma – 2,25. The Eagles have already surprised everyone by winning in Milan, however, this derby will be a huge challenge for them. It is recommended to bet on “Roma, Draw – no bet”(1,64). You can also choose “Total Goals by Away Team over 1,5” (2,12). Apart from that, the bet “Edin Dzeko to Score” is definitely worth your attention, because Roma’s striker is in the perfect form.
