Rome derby

Old rivals AS Roma and Lazio meet at a much-anticipated derby at Rome's Olympic Stadium on Monday 8 April at 20.45.

AS Roma will be keen to end Lazio's three-match winning streak in the Rome derby, while both football teams will seek to advance to the Champions League in what is likely to be a hard fought clash.

The two squads are separated by three points in the top half of the Seria A table, with Roma in seventh position and Lazio sixth. However if Lazio win, and if other results go the right way for them, they could move up to fourth place. Winning the derby is valued at three points.

AS Roma have won five of their last six matches, and seven of their last nine games at the Olympic Stadium, but Rome coach Aurelio Andreazzoli has admitted that tonight's derby is their biggest game of the season to date.

Ahead of Lazio on the board is Inter Milan in fifth place, Fiorentina in fourth, AC Milan in third, Napoli in second, and Juventus in top place.
