The lineups of Lazio and AS Roma for the crucial one Derby della Capitale Are known. On the Roma side, José Mourinho (suspended) and Rick Karsdorp (broken nose) are missing. Georginio Wijnaldum is kicking off at the Stadio Olimpico. Together with Bryan Cristante he must ensure control in midfield. On the side of Lazio, trainer Maurizio Sarri still has to do without Ciro Immobile. The difference between the two teams in the ranking is two points in favor of Lazio. The match starts at 6 p.m. and can be viewed on Ziggo Sports Select and Ziggo Sport Document.
Lazio starts with Ivan Provedel between the posts. The goalie sees a four-man defense in front of him, from right to left consisting of Adam Marusic, Nicolò Casale, Alessio Romagnoli and Elseid Hysaj. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Danilo Cataldi and Luis Alberto form the midfield. Pedro occupies the right wing position, while Mattia Zaccagni is on the left. Striker of service is Felipe Anderson.
Roma’s goalkeeper is Rui Patrício. Roger Ibañez, Chris Smalling and Gianluca Mancini are the defenders, while Nicola Zalewski takes over from Karsdorp in right midfield. Bryan Cristante and Wijnaldum are the controllers, while Leonardo Spinazzola has an attacking role on the left. Dybala, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Belotti form the vanguard.
Lazio was eliminated by AZ in the Conference League on Thursday, but Sarri will probably not have cared about that for long. The coach already announced that he would rotate and took star player Milinkovic-Savic to the side during the match in Alkmaar. Sarri cannot have the suspended Matías Vecino against Roma, while club top scorer Immobile is on his way back, but is still missing. Lazio have shown in recent weeks that they can beat big teams, as Napoli were treated to a 0-1 defeat in Naples. Afterwards, however, followed a double defeat against AZ and a draw against Bologna (0-0), where i Biancocelesti still got away with it. Lazio defends third place, which will have to give it up to his fellow townsman in the event of a defeat.

Volatility seems to flow in the Roman veins, because Roma also has a good hand in it. After a convincing win over Juventus (1-0), a defeat against Sassuolo (3-4) followed, although Real Sociedad was put aside in the Europa League in the meantime. Mourinho is serving a suspension and is therefore not there. The Portuguese has nevertheless stoked the fire several times, for example by saying that it is a pity that UEFA has to incur costs to move the Conference League trophy to another city. Nemanja Matic returns to the selection of i Giallorossi, who therefore do not have access to Karsdorp. The Dutchman suffered a broken nose in the game at Sociedad (0-0) on Thursday. In addition, Marash Kumbulla is missing after his red card against Sassuolo.
Lazio line-up: Provedel; Marusic, Casale, Romagnoli, Hysaj; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Pedro, Felipe Anderson, Zaccagni.
