Lazio boss Igor Tudor spoke just moments before his side face Roma in the Derby della Capitale.

It marks Tudor’s third game in charge of the Biancocelesti after he was appointed to replace Maurizio Sarri last month.

“We didn’t have long to prepare for this game, but we worked on all we could,” Tudor told DAZN.

“We continued to train on various tactical concepts and also a bit on our mentality. This game will be beautiful to experience in every possible sense, but it’s worth the same as the others. Hopefully it turns out to be a good game without controversies.”

He added, “As for our team, Kamada is playing because I think he’s a strong player. It’s the same with Ciro [Immobile], there’s no need to add anything beyond that. We’ll have five substitutions and all of them will be crucial tonight.”
