Roma defender and vice-captain Gianluca Mancini spoke minutes before kick-off to tonight’s Derby della Capitale with Lazio.

The Italian centreback reiterated the Giallorossi’s readiness for a difficult derby.

“We’re feeling good,” Mancini told DAZN before the match. “We’ve been thinking about this match for a week. We know what awaits us. The emotions are strong, the energy is the right one.”

“Every match has its own story, we know this and it must do something extra to deserve the victory,” he added.

“De Rossi? The coach prepared the match on a tactical and mental level, in this sport you have to combine the two and hope to do well on the pitch.”
