Reja: 'We fell for Totti provocation'

Edy Reja admits Lazio lost their heads because “we fell for Francesco Totti's provocation in a balanced game.”

Roma won the Derby della Capitale 2-0 with Totti's brace, but the Biancocelesti finished the encounter with nine men.

“The derby is a match that really is felt deeply in the city. It was a balanced game, then Roma found the breakthrough with the free kick. I felt Nando Muslera's vision was impaired during the incident.

Reja: 'It's Lazio's turn to win derby'

Edy Reja thinks it's high time Lazio ended their Derby della Capitale taboo. “It's our turn now and we deserve it.”

Roma have won the last four derbies on the trot and Reja has never beaten them in his career, while the Biancocelesti's last ‘home' success in this fixture was 1997.

“There's always a first time for everything,” smiled the Coach. “I have the feeling it's our turn now.

Also out of the clash with Roma are Tommaso Rocchi and Mobido Diakitè.

However, Giuseppe Sculli is included after he was forced into a substitution against Palermo last week due to an allergic reaction.

Where Eagles dare

The Derby della Capitale holds importance for Lazio, says Rob Paton, to show how far they can go under Edy Reja

The Rome derby is significant for Edy Reja. Beyond having lost the last three derbies under his stewardship despite being cited as the performing better in each case, this League meeting holds extra weight in shaping Lazio's season.

Totti in doubt for derby

Roma captain Francesco Totti is a doubt for this weekend's eagerly anticipated derby with Lazio.

The talismanic No 10 had a scan on Thursday after he complained of a groin injury.

Results showed that he has stretched it and there are doubts as to whether he will be fit in time.

If Totti is ruled out, his place in the starting XI will be taken by Marco Borriello.

Totti hasn't played in either of the two derbies that have already been played this season.

However Roma have won in his absence on both occasions.

Zarate: 'Derby more than just a game'

Mauro Zarate could not be more motivated for the derby. “We want to push for third place and Roma is far more than just an important game.”

The Lazio striker is set to star in this weekend's clash, where more than mere local pride is at stake.

“I hope to play a great game and if I score then I'll go to celebrate under the Curva Nord,” he told Lazio Style Radio.

“We promise our fans that we'll do our best, as for us the derby is far more than just an important game, especially as we lost the last four.

Sculli mystery deepens

Doubt has been poured on the theory that paint sprayed on the pitch at the Stadio Olimpico caused Lazio striker Giuseppe Sculli to have an allergic reaction.

The 29-year-old scored a rare brace of goals early in the first half against Palermo on Sunday, but had to go off after the interval when his skin started to swell and turn red.

Lazio doctor Roberto Bianchini revealed he had given Sculli an anti-histamine injection at half-time, but to no avail and Edy Reja had to use a substitution.
