Reja hopes to draw Roma

Lazio boss Edy Reja hopes to draw Roma in the Quarter-Finals of this year's Coppa Italia.

The Biancocelesti take on Serie B outfit Albinoleffe this evening, but already have an eye on the prospect of playing another derby this season.

Lazio lost to Roma earlier this season and Reja has never won a derby, so redemption is at the forefront of his thinking.

"There must always be motivation," Reja said. "It's obvious that finding Roma in the next round and trying to redeem ourselves for the last derby is an ulterior motive.

"However, our job is that of doing well in every game. There has been a constant evolution since I arrived.

"The team spirit is important. The results are coming. But we are still at the beginning."

Asked about the title race, Reja said: "I like to follow and not be followed. The fact that we are second in the table pleases us.

"I would like that we maintain this moment of form until the end of the season."
