PSV have been a cut above for most of the season, though, inspired by the exceptional wing play of Hirving Lozano following his transfer last summer. Given what’s at stake, expect a big performance from the hosts, as they look to secure a third title in four years.
At the start of this week Roma supporters would’ve thought this derby and a place in the Champions League was all that was really left for them to play for this term.
But there’s still a European Cup up for grabs for the Giallorossi, as they produced one of the biggest shocks in the history of the Champions League, beating Barcelona 3-0 to draw 4-4 on aggregate and qualify for the semi-final on away goals. The Roma players should be full of confidence after a stunning result and night at the Stadio Olimpico.
They need to refocus to domestic matters this weekend and in Lazio they have a major rival for a Champions League spot. Roma (third) and their bitter rivals Lazio (fourth) are deadlocked on 60 points going into this one, with Inter Milan just a point back. It means the result on Sunday will be vital to determining which two finish behind Juventus and Napoli come May.
Lazio will hope the effort exerted in midweek will give them an edge here and Simone Inzaghi’s team, the top scorers in the division this season, have the firepower to take advantage of any tired legs the opposition may have.
