Lazio boss Edy Reja said a positive attitude is the key if his side is to defeat city rivals Roma in their derby at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.
Reja’s side have had the better of their arch nemesis this season, with Lazio currently two spot ahead of Roma on the Serie A table in fourth position.
But despite their good form, they have not beaten Roma in their last four attempts, and Reja said they must believe in themselves if they are to win the three points on Sunday.
“We need to go on the pitch with the right determination and being convinced we can win the game,” Reja said.
“We’ve always had this attitude, with care and intelligence and taking into consideration Roma’s qualities.”
“They will do their best because they know it will be essential for them to win, if they want to have some hope to do the Champions League next year. Our aim will be not to let them do it.”
