Former Italian Defender Legrottaglie Anticipates That the Rome Derby Will Be a “Balanced Match”

The attention has turned to the upcoming Rome Derby between Lazio and AS Roma. Even as the fixture will have no fans in attendance coupled with the Biancocelesti’s rollercoaster form this season, the match itself is still being billed as one of the must-watch fixtures of the season so far.

For former Italian defender Nicola Legrottaglie, he does not see a heavy favorite in the match. He notes that AS Roma has been in top form as of late, but Lazio is slowly finding its footing in this season.

The former Italian talent provided his thoughts on the upcoming clash between the two clubs, with comments being relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

I don’t see a favorite. Roma are ahead, but Lazio are growing. It won’t be easy to find the goal in this match. It will be a balanced match.

Both sides need this win in order to begin to build on momentum at this point in the season.
