Lazio coach Rossi: Roma are favourites

“We are looking ahead to the derby and whoever can keep their nerve will end up winning,” Rossi told Sky Sport Italia.

“The league standings don’t count at all during these games. Those who play with serenity will win – not those who play better.

“We will see whoever plays best at the end of the season, not in the derby.

“The game needs no introduction to the players as they are already motivated and I think it will be an equal game.

“Nothing has changed in since the previous years and if Roma were favourites two months ago, then they should still be today.”
