ROME – It is already time for Lazio-Roma . The derby of the second day of Serie A sees Lazio with the favors of the prediction with the Rome that dreams of the coup. Lazio started the championship with a clear victory on the field of Sampdoria and with respect to Roma has changed little or nothing, confirming the coach and all the most representative players. Different speech in the Giallorossi home. Roma has changed a lot, starting with the coach, and has not convinced Genoa by conceding three rather avoidable home goals. Among the Giallorossi ranks, the newly acquired Smalling is immediately called but its use from the first minute is highly unlikely.
Derby, Fonseca: "I don't care about predictions, I just think about the field".
"Rome underdog in the derby? What matters is the field, Lazio is a very strong team, with very good players and a coach who has been training them for a long time and has a mechanism already in place. The question of the forecast does not count for me, it counts as you face the game. Those who are favored must then prove it on the field ”.
Thus the Roma coach Paulo Fonseca on the eve of the derby against Lazio. His statements are reported by Ansa. "I played several derbies in my career – I specify – a special game. It's my first Rome derby, I'm motivated and can't wait to play ”.
Inzaghi: "We favorites in the derby? It's an unpredictable game … ".
"We favorites? Probably in theory yes, given the first day, but in practice absolutely not. We know what it means to play a derby, they are two separate games in the league ”. This is what the Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi says . His statements are reported by Ansa.
"We will have to have humility and a spirit of sacrifice, but at the same time courage", continues Inzaghi. "Fonseca – adds the biancoceleste coach – was good at creating an excellent climate in a short time, Roma has very good players and an excellent coach".
