Former Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic discussed the upcoming Derby della Capitale.

The Serbian player – who completed a move to the Saudi Pro League in the summer – was asked by Lazio TV about the Biancocelesti’s chances in today’s derby versus Roma.

“The derby is always the most important match of the season,” said Milinkovic-Savic.

“It’s about defending the colors of your team, a part of the city, making your fans proud. It will be a real derby, with both teams trying to bring home the victory.”

“Lazio are coming off a better result than Roma. The victory in the Champions League against Feyenoord was heavy for the future of the group, allowing Sarri’s team to be masters of their own destiny in Europe.”

“I believe we will see a lot of fouling and therefore plenty of cards,” said the midfielder.
