Roma are hours away from kick-off to the highly anticipated Derby della Capitale with Lazio.

The Giallorossi will look for revenge and to make up for their last defeat in the Coppa Italia with the Biancocelesti.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the bulk of the action is expected to unfold in the midfield where Leandro Paredes is going to play a crucial role for Daniele De Rossi’s side.

The newspaper claims Paredes has been tasked with limited Lazio’s Matteo Guendouzi who under Igor Tudor has slotted in more centrally and is the main engine of Lazio’s attacking phase.

After analyzing video, De Rossi has been reportedly working with Paredes to make him the focal point of Roma’s gameplan for the derby scheduled for this evening.
