De Rossi Can Count on Roma Stars in Derby with Lazio

Daniele De Rossi will be able to count on all his usual Roma stars for the upcoming Derby della Capitale with Lazio.

The Giallorossi have been in flying form since the dismissal of Jose Mourinho and the arrival of De Rossi back in January, winning seven of their last 10 Serie A matches and only suffering defeat once, to league leaders Inter.

Roma are now in the thick of the race for a top-four finish with Bologna and will be desperate to secure a victory in the derby with Lazio as they look to maintain pressure on Thiago Motta’s side, keen to spoil the Cinderella story.

As highlighted by TMW, De Rossi was able to count on Paulo Dybala, Rasmus Kristensen, Chris Smalling and Renato Sanches in today’s squad training session at Trigoria, giving him flexibility with his Roma squad in the derby with Lazio.

The only expected absence for the Giallorossi is backup striker Sardar Azmoun, who is out for the next few weeks with a knee injury.
