Trabzonspor's Ogenyi Onazi is backing Lazio for victory over city rivals AS Roma in Wednesday's Coppa Italia semi-final fixture.

Lazio welcome Luciano Spalletti's men  to Stadio Olimpico and the 24-year-old midfielder who left I Biancocelesti for Turkey in August,  restated his loyalty to his former employers and tipped them to edge their Italian neighbours.

Onazi praised coach Simone Inzaghi and urged the players to retain the bragging rights in the Derby della Capitale.
