  01/03/2012: Ledesma: There are no favourites in the derby
email print  
Lazio vice-captain Cristian Ledesma spoke before Sky about the upcoming derby between Lazio and Roma. Ledesma is the only Lazio player who has played all 25 league games. A record that shows reliability. He’s a clear leader, never talks about excuses. It is going to be his 12th derby.

“The derby is a special game, because when you go on to the field you forget everything – standings, championships etc. The public understands how important it is at the first week, not counting anything else.”

Lazio have been hit with injury problems all season long and this week is not an exception. Zauri and Lulic are out for sure, Konko trained separately which gives him some chances to return Sunday. Radu is in a specialized center in Cesena trying to make a miraculous return. In the moment the expected formation will be (4-2-3-1) Marchetti, Scaloni, Biava, Dias, Garrido, Ledesma, Matuzalem; Gonzalez, Hernanes, Mauri; Klose.
