Roma will face Lazio in the Rome derby on Sunday.
“I wouldn’t take a draw if I were offered it,” Rocchi stressed on Sky Sport Italia.
“The derby is a really great game and one that must be won at all costs because the taste of victory is always very sweet.
“The fact that we have more points than them means that at the moment we are doing well.
“However, when you are dealing with a derby the form book goes out of the window and everyone just prepares as best they can for that one game.
“We are determined to make up for last season’s difficulties and we are going along nicely.
“However, Roma are having a tough time of things but they remain one of the best sides in the League.”
Roma won 3-2 in their similar meeting last season.
