(Serie A) Roma Vs Lazio : Derby della Capitale Match Preview And Predictions

Lazio visits Roma at the Stadio Olimpico this weekend for another Derby della Capitale on Saturday , this time for opportunities to be cemented in the Champions League Qualification spot.

Lazio presently sit in fourth position, one point ahead of Atalanta and a win here against the second place Roma, who have already accumulated 75 points, 8 behind League leaders Juventus, will give them breathing space and will give them one big game less as they head into their last five matches of the season.

Lazio had earlier this month defeated Roma out of the Copa Italia and are to face Juventus for the final. Hence, an opportunity for revenge for Roma even though it gives no opportunities for either sides to be handed the trophy this season.

Francesco Totti Roma's Captain had earlier said Roma has to totally "destroy" Lazio , which left Peruzzi unimpressed.

“At times people use slogans and phrases to get people into the stadium," he told Mediaset Premium.
“It'll be a very passionate game, but there is no need to destroy anything. We want to maintain our current position in the Serie A table, so do
Roma , and both teams have a lot to lose in this weekend. They will prove to be important points just a few rounds from the end of the season."

“We still need to end the campaign on a high and want all our hard work to bear fruit, because the fact remains that so far we haven't won anything.

“If we get the silver medal in the Coppa Italia, it won't count for anything. We need to play our best possible performance to win and it's very important for us."
