The big match between Lazio and Rome is just around the corner. On Saturday, September 29th, the teams will clash at 9:00 am EST for the well-known Derby della Capitale. The declarations of the protagonists inflame the atmosphere and foment a historical rivalry, especially if the former Giallorossi captain and Italian legend Francesco Totti, who at the SkySport microphones declared: “We will face this game head-on without fear of anyone. I hope the team can demonstrate its value. I would gladly accept a late birthday present”. He then expressed his feelings: “I hope Saturday is a great game. The derby is a very heartfelt match, it is different from all the others”.
Lazio, with nine goals for and six goals against, currently sit in fourth place in the standings with twelve points in six matches. Although what seems a low point total (missing 6 points), they have already played Juventus and Napoli, the top two teams in the Serie A TIM currently. Roma, on the other hand, are under fire as they sit in tenth spot with just 8 points in 6 matches. 11 goals for. 9 goals against. If looking at current form is important, Laziali should feel very confident about this match, but one thing to remember is that a derby is a derby – anything can happen.
