Former Lazio Defender Roberto Cravero believes Lazio have a slight advantage to snatch a win over their arch rivals.
Speaking to Radio Mana Mana, Cravero said: "With Roma missing Totti and Lazio having an in-form Klose, I think Lazio have the advantage. Had Totti been on the field, things could have been more equal, but I think Reja has the advantage, maybe a 55 percent chance."
"Lazio seem to be more prepared this season. They have two great strikers in Klose and Cisse, and despite a higher average of age, Lazio looks more solid. Roma on the other hand is a young team that has still yet to grow. I feel Reja's team is more prepared." continued the former defender.
Asked about his memories of the Derbies he played, Cravero said: "I don't carry great memories, we drawed too many games because we played defensively and did not want to lose. It was a time of rebuilding for Lazio, but now things are different. Both teams have a more attacking approach which can only be good for the fans."
And when asked if he has still Lazio in his heart, Cravero was certain: "I always said Torino is my favorite team, but Lazio is always in my heart. They are the second team for me. My memories in Rome made me grow as a man, and Zeman gave me a big chance to launch myself back into Football. But it was Zoff whom I felt was like a father to me."
