Scroll to the bottom of the page to do just that!
Società Sportiva Lazio, more commonly known as Lazio, are the second biggest club in the eternal city of Rome. This exposure has made the once small-time amateur side into one a well known club by football fans all over the world.
The club ground share with AS Roma at the famous Stadio Olimpico, however, the relationship isn’t a friendly one. In fact, the Derby della Capitale has seen 34 red cards since 1993 alone. Roma may have the better record over Lazio in their meetings but Lazio certainly don’t lack history themselves. They are the sixth most supported club in Italy ‘La Repubblica’s’ research in August 2008. As well as this they have a proud history of being competitive in the Coppa Italia, winning the trophy on seven occasions.
SS Lazio’s most successful era came under future England manager, Sven-Göran Eriksson. During his tenure with I Biancocelesti, between 1997 to 2001, he led the club to their first Scudetto for 26 years enabling him to complete the club’s first ever double in the same season. A year earlier, he also guided a team featuring stars such as Pavel Nedvěd and Alessandro Nesta to Lazio’s first European trophy, the Cup Winners’ Cup. Though his stay at the club lasted just four years, he has probably been modern Lazio’s biggest influencer.
After Eriksson’s departure, key players such as the aforementioned Nedvěd and Nesta left meaning that this trophylaiden era came to an end. Since then, Lazio has maintained their strong record in the Coppa Italia, winning it three more times, with the latest coming as recently as 2019.
The Italian outfit also have a good reputation for producing some of Italy’s best young players. Stars like Paolo Di Canio, Marco Materazzi, Nesta and current Monaco forward Keita Baldé have all partaken in the Lazio youth sector.
Lazio have a stronghold in the upper tiers of Italian football thanks to being in the top division for most of their existence. They hope to soon be competing in European football as well in the coming years and it wouldn’t be surprising to see their instantly recognisable white and sky blue kits emerging from the tunnel of the Stadio Olimpico to the tune of The Champion’s League or Europa League anthems soon.
