Lazio’s Confirmed Starting XI for Derby vs Roma: Pedro Faces His Former Club

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri has picked a full-strength starting XI for this evening’s Derby della Capitale against Roma.

As seen in a post on Lazio’s Twitter page earlier today, Spanish veteran Pedro will start in the derby against the Giallorossi this evening, despite having scored for Roma in the match against Lazio only four months earlier.

Lazio Coach Sarri Has Lost More Games Than He’s Won Against Roma

Below is Lazio’s starting lineup for today’s derby against Roma:

Lazio (4-3-3): Pepe Reina; Adam Marusic, Luiz Felipe, Francesco Acerbi, Elseid Hysaj; Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Ciro Immobile, Pedro.

  • On the bench: Thomas Strakosha, Marius Adamonis, Patric, Manuel Lazzari, Stefan Radu, Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro, Toma Basic, Gonzalo Escalante, Danilo Cataldi, Raul Moro, Luka Romero, Vedat Muriqi.

Lazio Coach Sarri Has Only Ever Faced Roma Coach Mourinho Once in His Career

Lazio are looking to bounce back from their recent run of poor form in today’s derby against Roma, having failed to win in their last four matches across all competitions.

Roma, on the other hand, have had a good start to the season, winning four of their opening five games.
