Totti out of Rome derby, Klose doubtful for Lazio

The Roma-Lazio derby is one of the most eagerly awaited derby games in the Serie A season. This Sunday’s is no different but it will miss one, and maybe two, of its highest profile protagonists due to injury.
Francesco Totti hasn’t recovered from a right thigh problem in time to take part in his 36th derby this Sunday. A statement from the club said that further tests following intense rehabilitation from physiotherapy and aquatic therapy showed that Totti isn’t ready to face the Biancocelesti this weekend and may also miss the following game against Palermo. It’s thought that the favourite to take his role will be Roma’s summer acquisition from Lyon, Miralem Pjanic.
Meanwhile, at Lazio, their summer signing, Miroslav Klose, is also doubtful for the Rome derby because of a problem with his left knee, which was causing him pain whilst on international duty with Germany this week. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
