Rome reaches fever pitch for derby

Derby fever is especially fervent in Rome this week as the two city rivals prepare to do battle at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.

Lazio have had to live in Roma's shadow for several years but their surprising start to the season has seen them open up a four-point gap at the top of the table. That has got the sky blue half of the city more excited than normal ahead of Sunday's game and around 4,000 people turned up to watch a midweek practice match between Lazio and their own youth team.

The story is too old to be commented.
