It doesn’t happen very often that Roma and Lazio can face each other with a title at stake. Lazio, however, can pride themselves on having beaten their bitter enemies in a Coppa Italia Final, thanks to a lone goal by Senad Lulic in the 71st minute.

The last Serie A matches of January will end on a high as Roma host Lazio in the capital’s big derby and Napoli welcome Juventus to the Italian South. Lazio come into the derby with an astonishing 11-game winning streak. Roma, on the other hand, suffered damaging setbacks with consecutive home defeats to Torino and Juventus.
