Hernanes plans wonderful derby

Lazio playmaker Hernanes is planning a "wonderful" performance for the derby against Roma on Sunday.

The Brazil international is keen to stop Lazio's four-game running streak in this fixture.

Lazio currently lie fourth in Serie A and have a five-point cushion on Roma.

Speaking to Lazio's official radio station, Hernanes said: "I'll score and Lazio will win.

"I want it to be a wonderful Sunday. We must be careful not to repeat the mistakes of the last few derbies.

"The Olimpico is the ground that I know best. It's easier for me.

"Now I like playing as a trequartista, it's the role that I prefer.

"Within a year, we'll fight for the Scudetto," he concluded.
