Good News for Roma: Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi Ready for Derby

ThomasSenior Writer INovember 15, 2008

Good news for Roma fans ahead of the Rome derby against Lazio as striker and captain Francesco Totti and midfielder Daniele De Rossi have been declared fit and will be included in tomorrow's lineup.

Totti has been struggling all season long with a nagging knee injury. On Friday, he had to leave practice early. After a series of tests, it was determined that he would be able to play in tonight's match.

De Rossi has also been given the nod to play. His wrist injury is not as serious as first thought. Like you really need a wrist to play football anyways.

However, midfielders Rodrigo Taddei and Alberto Aquilani have struggled to get fit and probably won't be able to go tomorrow.

Roma are desperate for points as well as some pride. A win is necessary in order to stop them falling into the drop zone - and to restore some confidence in the team. They are currently 19 points behind leader Inter Milan and just one point ahead of Bologna in the race to avoid relegation.
