Lazio Looking to Pull off Double Derby Success Against Roma for First Time in Years

Lazio have the chance to pull off a double Derby della Capitale victory against Roma tomorrow.

The Biancocelesti won the first derby meeting with the Giallorossi earlier this season 3-2, thanks to goals from Felipe Anderson, Pedro and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. A win in tomorrow’s match is crucial in the race for European qualification this season, with Roma only a point behind Lazio.

After winning the first leg 2-1 with goals from Miroslav Klose and Hernanes, the Biancocelesti beat Roma again in the second leg with the same goalscorers and result.

Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio picked up three points over Jose Mourinho’s Roma earlier this season and now they want to pull off the double in tomorrow’s match at the Stadio Olimpico, which will surely prove to be an electric clash.
