Lazio defender Adam Marusić was adamant that this evening’s Derby showdown against Roma will be more difficult than the one from January, which his side won 3-0.
The 28 year-old starts in defence this evening for manager Simone Inzaghi alongside Francesco Acerbi and Stefan Radu.
Speaking before kick-off, the Montenegrin felt confident that his side are well prepared for tonight’s fixture against their city rivals.
“We understand how important the Derby is, we feel well prepared for this game,” he said to Lazio Style Radio.
“The first time we met Roma this season, we won 3-0. However, this match is going to be more difficult. Let’s see what happens.”
Adding, “It’s also important for Roma because they haven’t had a very good league campaign.”
