The Derby della Capitale is arguably the most heated rivalry in all of Italy. Fans from both sides hope for nothing more than to have a year’s worth of bragging rights over their fellow citizens, or in our case, Laziali worldwide. However, just because both sides despise each other, it doesn’t mean that a common respect can’t be found between a few tifosi on each side.

Luckily for us, I found one such amicable Laziale, Jerry Mancini, who was willing to join me on Across the Romaverse. Jerry joined me on a special Derby della Capitale preview episode to give us his expertise on the Biancoceleste, as well as, look ahead to Friday’s match. In the episode, Jerry and I discuss:

  • Lazio: last season vs this season
  • Does Lazio truly lack depth or is the problem Simone Inzaghi’s squad management?
  • Lazio’s surprise performers
  • Lazio’s biggest underachiever
  • What the derby means to Jerry
  • Keys for Lazio and Roma
  • Match-ups to watch
  • Predictions
