More so, it is noteworthy to watch how managers prepare for these highly-anticipated fixtures. For former AS Roma midfielder Massimiliano Cappioli, he notes how influential Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi has been in this derby in years past.

Cappioli spoke about the Italian manager, with comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.
