New dugouts, same rivalry. Lazio enter this latest installation of the Derby della Capitale in patchy form having not tasted victory in their last four games across all competitions, including a 1-0 reversal to Galatasaray in Europe, while Roma are in good nick, winning seven of their eight opening matches under Mourinho.

For Sarri it’s been a different story. He got his tenure up and running with successive league wins over Empoli and Spezia, but since a 2-0 defeat to Milan on matchday three, the Biancocelesti have been unable to rediscover their winning touch, drawing back-to-back games against Cagliari and Torino in Serie A.

A win here would really issue a statement of intent as the former banker looks to remedy the departure of his predecessor Simone Inzaghi, and Lazio enter this match unbeaten in the last four home Serie A derbies, but Mourinho is a man who relishes the big occasion and will be itching to cause a storm in the capital.

Lazio vs Roma: Match Stats

Roma will take to the Stadio Olimpico knowing a strong route to goal could come from set-pieces. Thus far, only Empoli (34) have registered more corners in Serie A this season than Roma (32), who boast some towering figures in 6ft 3in Tammy Abraham and 6ft 3in Gianluca Mancini, among others.

For Lazio, they know Ciro Immobile will just need one opportunity to find the net. Roma have kept a clean sheet in only one of their last nine away league games, conceding at least twice in each of the other eight, so chances will certainly fall Immobile’s way, and he is already leading the scoring charts this term with six goals.

Earlier this year, Lazio ran out 3-0 victors as the home side, with Immobile getting on the scoresheet, and Luis Alberto netting a brace.
