Mario Balotelli predicts Roma will lose Derby in Coppa Italia

Andy Mattioli

Former Inter and Manchester City attacker Mario Balotelli shared his thoughts on the upcoming Derby della Capital between Roma and Lazio in the Coppa Italia quarterfinals.

The former Nerazzurri star spoke about Mourinho’s tactics and previewed the heated Rome derby in an interview with TvPlay.

“I think those who exaggerate are always wrong. Mourinho’s teams have never played like tiki-taka Barcelona so I don’t understand why we are still surprised, he is interested in winning.”

“Roma-Cremonese? Tsadjout’s goal is very difficult, shortly after Lukaku ate a goal by missing the stop, while on the equalizer he was very good at attacking: good goal. Dybala? Sensational technique and intelligence, he is too strong. Spinazzola’s penalty was there although it was a bit soft and the player did do too many theatrics,” he added.

“Derby? Lazio will win, and I generally think that Milan, Juventus and Bologna will also go through.”
