Player to watch

Lazio: Pedro

Pedro has been an important member of Sarri’s squad since leaving Roma in 2021. He typically plays as a forward or attacker and is noted for his speed, dribbling, and ability to capitalize on counter-attacks. His versatility has also been valuable, as he can play in a variety of attacking positions, including as a winger, forward, or attacking midfielder. His technical ability, vision, and creativity make him a valuable asset to the Lazio team. He has already tallied 5 goals and assisted this season across all categories.

Roma: Paulo Dybala

Paulo Dybala has a very specialized skill set that he uses well as an offensive midfielder or a striker. The Argentine creator brings a new dimension to Roma’s offence and should play a significant part in the squad. His output should only improve with a squad where he is the focal focus of the offence. He can play off the right side, but he lacks the natural pace and 1v1 skill of a more conventional winger, so he is often forced to play centrally.
