  03/04/2012: Preview Primavera Derby: Roma - Lazio
email print  
After beating Nocerina on the weekend the situation is calm on Formello ahead of the important derby for the young Lazio players.

The 4-0 victory secure a place in the play-offs for the Primavera and what remains for Bollini's boys now is to finish ahead of city rivals Roma in the league. A win tomorrow against their rivals would obviously help a lot.

Technically Lazio are 1 points ahead of Roma in the standings but with two matches more it is more or less 5 points behind since both teams usually win every week.

With only 3 matches left before the play-offs it is absolutely crucial for Bollini to secure a victory tomorrow.

Captain of the team, Luca Crescenzi has almost recovered from his long-time injury but unfortunately he is not in the squad ahead of the match:

Goalkeepers: Berardi, Mosciatti;
Defenders: Serpieri, Sbraga, Ilari, Vilkaitis, Marin, Salustri:
Midfielders: Onazi, Cilfone, Cataldi, Zampa;
Attackers: Emmanuel, Tira, Barreto, Denè, Vivacqua, Rozzi.

Predicted Lineup (4-3-3): Berardi; Serpieri, Sbraga, Vilkaitis, Marin; Onazi, Zampa, Cilfone; Barreto, Rozzi, Emmanuel

Ahead of the match coach Alberto Bollini spoke to Radio Style and said his players know the strengths of the Roma team (who won the Cup two weeks ago) but they will try to win for Chinaglia:

"We have a strong group of young players who understand the biancocelesti spirit. Strength, ruthlessness, but also goodness."
