Rizzitelli: Salah will be decisive for Roma against Lazio
Speaking to the media prior to the upcoming derby, Rizzitelli described Egypt international Mohamed Salah as Roma’s key man against Lazio.
The Giallorossi, second in Serie A with 75 points, are set to host rivals Lazio on Sunday at the Stadio Olimpico.
When asked about the key players for the game against Lazio on Sunday, the former Torino captain who also played for Roma told sportpaper.it: “For Lazio I believe that Immobile will be key. For Roma, however, I think Mohamed Salah will be the determining man.”
Salah was, in fact, the key man for Roma on Monday as he netted twice against Pescara which enabled them to maintain a four-point lead ahead of Napoli.
Earlier in April, Lazio reached the Coppa Italia final at the expense of Roma. Salah scored a brace in the second leg but they weren’t enough after Lazio won the tie 4-3 on aggregate.
