Preview: Lazio VS Roma

The Coppa Italia returns to the fold with another edition of the Derby della Capitale this week as Lazio lock horns with Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma side in a crucial encounter at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday.

Lazio (also known as SS Lazio) and Roma (commonly referred to as AS Roma) meet again 2 months after the Serie A match which ended in a draw 0-0. Lazio are having a solid run at the moment winning their matches against Udinese, Frosinone and Empoli so they’ll try to extend their winning streak with a victory over Roma.

Roma are going into the fixture after playing a draw against Atalanta last Monday extending their unbeaten streak to 2 matches. They have been conceding goals for 4 consecutive away matches now which puts additional psychological pressure on the team.
