They will hate to admit it, but Rome's two footballing tenants have never been closer.

Roma and Lazio head into Sunday's Coppa Italia final on the back of a Serie A season that has seen them finish within just a point of one another in the league table.

Aurelio Andreazzoli's Giallorossi took sixth spot on 62 points, with Vladimir Petkovic's men finishing in seventh and with neither side able to secure European football by way of their efforts in the league, the cup final has an added importance.

Along with local bragging rights, a Europa League spot is up for grabs for the winners of Sunday's clash, while Roma will be spurred on further in their quest to lift the trophy for a record 10th time.

The Giallorossi are able to boast a clean bill of health heading into the game, while Lazio are without Christian Brocchi and Mauro Zarate through injury - though Alvaro Gonzalez should be fit to make the bench.

  • There have been over 2.5 goals scored in eight of Lazio's last 10 Coppa Italia games.
