Goals on the menu in Rome showdown

Edin Dzeko of Roma
1 of 1

Serie A
BT Sport 3, 5pm Saturday

It's derby day across Europe this weekend with north London starting proceedings and Madrid ending affairs. There's a potential Rome epic in between as Roma and Lazio do battle at the Stadio Olimpico.

The rivals are in fantastic form with Lazio four points off the summit with a game in hand on leaders Napoli, while Roma are one point worse off having played one match fewer.

Roma, who have a major doubt regarding the participation of key midfielder Radja Nainggolan, are playing some smashing stuff with seven goals scored in the last two matches and the fact that leading hitman Edin Dzeko was not on the scoresheet shows the depth of firepower in Eusebio Di Francesco's squad.

However, the Wolves will not find it easy against a Lazio side who have won nine straight matches in all competitions.

Fourteen-goal Ciro Immobile is averaging a goal every 76 minutes in Serie A this season but he is far from the only threat.

Former Liverpool man Luis Alberto is doing great work on the flank and Serbian midfield powerhouse Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is destined to move on to a bigger club sooner than later.

It should be a great game to watch with both teams to score in a belter looking the best bet.
