Former AS Roma Captain Giannini: “It Will Be a Great Derby”

The Rome Derby is fast approaching with expectations mounting for those from both teams.

Lazio and AS Roma both so need a win in this fixture to not only capitalize on recent momentum but also to push forward to what is looking to be a grand battle for a top-four finish in Serie A this season.

Former AS Roma Giuseppe Giannini took part in several memorable Rome Derbies and is looking ahead to what this upcoming duel between the two rivals will bring. Giannini is very much expecting a quality showing between the two sides but is more so disappointed that there will be no fans in attendance to watch this encounter between the two clubs.

Giannini spoke about the upcoming fixture, with comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

Rome and Lazio arrive at the derby with two great results. The Biancocelesti have won away from home and Roma have reassembled Inter. As usual, it is difficult to make a prediction on a match like this. It will be a good derby. What I regret is that there is no public to attend this challenge.

The former Roma talent is signaling out one player on each side that could be key in the match.

Lazio, on the other hand, has in the game organization that has been carrying out its peculiarity for years. It has two to three decisive players among its ranks. Lazio has its added value in Immobile, as Roma has in Dzeko. They are forwards capable of scoring at any time, I think they are the most decisive.

These two have scored key goals in the derby before.
