Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri has picked a full-strength starting XI for this evening’s Derby della Capitale against Roma.
As seen in a post on Lazio’s Twitter page earlier today, Spanish veteran Pedro will start in the derby against the Giallorossi this evening, despite having scored for Roma in the match against Lazio only four months earlier.
Lazio (4-3-3): Pepe Reina; Adam Marusic, Luiz Felipe, Francesco Acerbi, Elseid Hysaj; Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Ciro Immobile, Pedro.
On the bench: Thomas Strakosha, Marius Adamonis, Patric, Manuel Lazzari, Stefan Radu, Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro, Toma Basic, Gonzalo Escalante, Danilo Cataldi, Raul Moro, Luka Romero, Vedat Muriqi.
Lazio are looking to bounce back from their recent run of poor form in today’s derby against Roma, having failed to win in their last four matches across all competitions.
Roma, on the other hand, have had a good start to the season, winning four of their opening five games.
