On the heels of its dramatic 2-0 win over Parma, Lazio is now set for a Serie A bout against long-time rivals AS Roma. Lazio will be looking to extend its current winning streak to three games while Roma aims at keeping a firm lead in the top four. Both teams so need a statement win at this point in the season.
Former Lazio goalkeeper Fernando Orsi took part in several Rome derbies and is looking forward to what this edition will bring. He does not view a heavy favorite for this upcoming duel but does see factors where one side will have an advantage over the other.
The former Italian goalkeeper previewed the derby, with comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.
In my opinion, Roma are better at this derby, but we know that it is a match in which predictions are hardly respected.
I think the Giallorossi are superior from a technical point of view, but the Biancocelesti are stronger psychologically. I take the attack of Lazio and the defense of Roma. Inzaghi is a thinking coach and is constantly growing.
As mentioned, a win for either side could be a season-defining one that would give the winner much-needed momentum over this point in the season.
