Sunday's Rome Derby between fierce rivals AS Roma and Lazio is a capital clash not to be missed as the visitors look for an unprecedented 12th successive Serie A victory.
Here's all you need to know.
🏟 What's on the line?
Well, aside from three points, a capital clash between city rivals means that bragging rights and pride are always at stake. Lazio's incredible string of 11 consecutive wins in Italy's top-flight means that they can leapfrog Inter and go second with a win.
For Roma, a win would solidify their hold on 4th place ahead of an unpredictable Atalanta outfit that currently trails them by three points.
✅ Form and head-to-head
Paulo Fonseca's Roma side has only lost two of their last 11 Serie A matches, but those were consecutive matches on home soil against Torino and Juventus earlier this month. Lazio's eagles are soaring the Italian skies, currently on an unprecedented 11-match winning streak.
Three of the last five Rome Derby clashes have been won by the home side on the day, while the other two were drawn. The smart money is on another tight tussle this Sunday.
💫 Team news & men to watch
Fonseca will be delighted that he can call upon top goal-scorer Edin Dzeko, who returns from suspension, but midfield trio Nicolò Zaniolo, Javier Pastore and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are all out long-term. Lazio hitman Ciro Immobile leads the Serie A goal-scoring charts with 23 goals, and he's also laid on five assists. The 29-year-old Italian is on fire.
Derbies around the world are always special occasions and these two Roman rivals should produce a Serie A spectacle for the watching world.
