(Pre-match) Dzeko: “I hope we win because the Derby is worth more this year”.


Edin Dzeko to Roma TV before Lazio-Roma:

The Derby is here.
It’s unique, but this year it’s worth more because we’re in a race for the Champions League. We have to give everything on the field, even if they’re technically the home side. Anything can happen, we must try to win.

You’ve had some difficulties scoring.
I was also a bit unlucky, maybe I was not at 100%. We hope to win the Derby and if I score it will be even better.

You’re an adopted Roman and now you’re just like De Rossi, Florenzi and Pellegrini.
They feel this match more than the rest, they were born here and they have always been Romanisti. I think of the first Sarajevo derby, it was a unique feeling and it will be like that for them, as it was for Totti. I just want to win. I do not think about other things.
