Graziani tips Roma for derby win

Italy legend Francesco Graziani has unsurprisingly tipped Roma to win the derby against Lazio this weekend.

The 57-year-old spent three years with Roma in the 1980s and won the Coppa Italia on two occasions in the red and yellow colours.

"I had played in many derbies since I was at Torino. And I learnt one thing," Graziani said. "The team that is the most in difficulty always wins. In this case that's Roma.

"I have the sensation that it can finish 2-1 to Ranieri's side, but I prefer to bet on a victory rather than the exact result."

Graziani also feels Napoli will bounce back from last night's heavy defeat to Liverpool in the Europa League.

"Recently Napoli have been doing well away from home and not so well at home. The moment has come to turn it around.

"I have faith in Walter Mazzarri and I think they'll beat Parma."
