Totti on Roma vs Lazio Derby: “It’s a Roulette & Has No Rules”

Francesco Totti highlighted the tension and unpredictability of the Derby della Capitale ahead of Roma’s upcoming match against Lazio.

The former Giallorossi talisman, who spent all 24 years of his professional career with the Roman club, faced the Biancocelesti an incredible 44 times throughout his career. He won 15 of those derbies, drawing 12 and losing 17, scoring 11 goals in that time. The duels between Totti and Alessandro Nesta were an iconic sight in the clash.
