ROME LAZIO, THE PROBABLE FORMATIONS – Playing a derby is important for many reasons: the glory, access to the cups, the points … but this time there is another motivation that, paradoxically, is much more important of the previous ones: the bench by Di Francesco . The stracittadina, we are almost certain, will be an important test for the coach from Abruzzo: inside or outside. The season of the Giallorossi has not begun as it was finished; parties with enthusiasm thanks to the victory in extremis with the Torino the team has not been able to find the three points except in the last home release with the Frosinone . All another scenario instead on the other side of the Tiber. Lazio in the first six games of this championship has won and convinced by showing team and play compactness. The boys of Inzaghi have collected 12 points with four wins and two losses, which means fourth place in the standings just 6 points from Juventus leaders. Two opposing realities will then face one of the most beautiful and heartfelt derby in the world.
THE PREVIOUS – The first derby of Roma was played on December 8th 1929 in the Rondinella stadium . Since that time, 169 other official matches have been played: the budget sees the Giallorossi ahead with 64 victories (54 in the league), while 61 (58 in the league) were the draws. In the stracittadina Lazio has collected 45 victories, of which 38 in Serie A. In the last season the team of Di Francesco imposed itself in the first leg for 2-1 with goals Perotti Nainggolan and Building while the return match ended 0-0. Roma have lost only two of their last 20 home games in the league, in 2012 (1-2, with goals by Hernanes, Borini and Mauri) and in 2017 (1 -3, signed by a double by Keita, by De Rossi and Basta) for a budget in this partial completed by 11 wins and 7 draws (the last in 2015, with goals from Felipe Anderson and Mauri canceled by Francesco's double Totti ).
LE SCELTE – La Rome of Di Francesco will take to the field with most likely confirming the 4-2-3-1 seen with the Frosinone . Olsen to protect the poles, with in front of him the four-defense line formed by Florenzi Manolas Fazio and Kolarov . The midfield pair will be formed by De Rossi and Nzonzi while behind Dzeko single point, there will be Under Pastore and El Shaarawy .
Inzaghi is ready to line up his classic 3-5-2, with some doubts regarding men. In door space to Strakosha in the three-man defense are sure of the post Wallace and Acerbi, with Luiz Felipe that you play a starting spot with Radu: if the Romanian defender, coming back from an injury, in the coming days will give all the necessary guarantees, will be in the field from the first minute. In midfield five, space to Marusic and Lulic on the side lanes, while in the middle ready the titolarissimi Leiva Milinkovic and Parolo . The couple is ready for the attack Immobile-Luis Alberto with Correa who knocks for a starting shirt after the goal against Udinese .
