Lazio director Igli Tare denies they are favourites going into the Derby Della Capitale with Roma. “It is separate from the rest of the campaign.”
It kicks off at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), follow the build-up and action on the LIVEBLOG.
“Who says we’re favourites? That is absolutely not the case and we certainly don’t think that,” the director and former striker told Sky Sport Italia.
“We are in a good period of form, we signed players who did well to settle in very quickly to our well-drilled tactical system, but that doesn’t mean anything. There are so many variables in a game like this and the Derby is separate from the rest of the campaign.
“We must be humble and prove once again our desire to win.”
