Recently in English we read a book called Divided City and we are interested in Rangers and Celtic’s rivalry so we decided to study another rivalry. We chose Roma vs Lazio . Fans have recently stopped going to the games in protest against security measures and the separating of the ultras.
Roma were founded in 1927. This is when the first game took place. They share the same stadium. The stadium is called the Stadio Olympico. The fact that these two clubs share a stadium is surprising given the hatred between them.
In the last game Roma won 4-1 in a half empty stadium because of all of the protests . The next game is on the 4th December in Calacio A. Lazio’s average attendance last season was 35,500. Roma’s was 40,000. Roma are currently second in the table. Lazio are currently 4th. Lazio have 25 points. Roma have 26 points.
