Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri has lost more games than he’s won against Roma in his career.

As noted by stats portal Transfermarkt, the 62-year-old Italian coach has faced the Giallorossi 11 times throughout his career, winning four times, drawing twice, and losing five times.

His first meeting against Roma came in the 2014/15 season when his Empoli side lost 1-0 at home.

Sarri did not achieve his first win against the Giallorossi until the 2016/17 season when his Napoli side won 2-1 away at the Stadio Olimpico.

Since that game, the Lazio coach has only lost to Roma once, a 4-2 defeat in the 2017/18 season, and he has won his last two games against the Giallorossi, both with Juventus in the 2019/20 campaign.

Sarri will be hoping to better his record against Roma in today’s derby, a key game for the Biancocelesti as they look to break the run of poor form that started following the 2-0 loss to AC Milan.
