It's derby time, but can Roma break their hex against big clubs?

The Derby della Capitale doesn't need added emphasis from anyone, but with Roma in the thick of a crowded race for one of Italy's four Champions League places, a victory today would help keep the Giallorossi ahead of the likes of Juventus, Atalanta and Napoli; three big clubs that have frustrated Paulo Fonseca over the past two years and three clubs that also happen to have a game in hand over Roma.

So, while the derby doesn't need external hype, this is a massive match for Roma, both in terms of local pride and their place on the table. The lineups are in, so let's see if Roma will paint the Eternal City red and yellow tonight.
