Former Lazio Defender Piscedda: “The Derby is an Important Exam”

Lazio picked up its first winning streak in quite a while following the 2-0 victory over Parma. The win moved the Biancocelesti up to a mere three points behind Napoli, which currently stands as the sixth-place side in the league table.

The focus for manager Simone Inzaghi has shifted over to the upcoming Rome Derby. Of course, many former players who played in this unique derby are looking forward to this matchup, including former Lazio defender Massimo Piscedda.

The former Italian defender believes that this upcoming duel for Lazio will be one of the biggest tests of its season. Piscedda spoke further about the Rome Derby, with comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

Lazio at this moment must find itself with the results; the team is there. In Parma, they had to achieve a result and they did it. The derby is an important exam, winning it you would hang up in the Champions group.

For Piscedda, he notes that there are two players in particular who could step up their performances a bit, which could help out the Biancocelesti in one key aspect of play.

Luis Alberto and Milinkovic have to give something plus in the non-possession phase. Then as far as quality is concerned, it is another matter.

These two players will surely be key in the Rome Derby.
