The probable formations

Returning in opposite moods from the European round, Lazio and Roma face each other Sunday at 6 p.m. on the Stadio Olimpico ground.

Lazio, fresh from the Conference League elimination at the hands of Az Alkmaar, relies on Pedro in attack in place of the injured Immobile: the Spaniard, by the way a former Giallorossi player, will most likely be joined by Felipe Anderson and Zaccagni. As for Roma, on the other hand, Jose Mourinho (who will not be on the bench due to disqualification, replaced by deputy Salvatore Foti) relies on Pellegrini, Dybala and Abraham from three-quarters up, giving the keys of the midfield to Wijnaldum. The stakes are high, city glory aside: three points would be crucial, for either team, in the race for the next Champions League.

Likely lineups:

LAZIO (4-3-3): Maximiano; Lazzari, Casale, Romagnoli, Marusic; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Pedro, Felipe Anderson, Zaccagni. All. Sarri;

ROME (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Zalewski, Cristante, Wijnaldum, Spinazzola; Dybala, Pellegrini; Abraham. All. Mourinho (disqualified, benched Foti).
