Eriksson’s won four times in a row with Lazio over rivals AS Roma.
He said: “I am really looking forward to it. I know all about derbies from my time in Gothenburg, in Lisbon and of course Rome.
“The ones in Rome stick out, that is not a quiet affair. But I had a good record. The plaque at the training ground recognises I won four in a row — and that had never been done before.”
