Roma captain Totti to miss derby with Lazio

Roma captain Francesco Totti has been ruled out of Sunday’s

derby with Lazio due to a right thigh injury.

The 35-year-old Totti was injured in Roma’s 3-1 win over

Atalanta this month.

Roma says he needs more physiotherapy and that he will undergo

more medical tests next week.

Meanwhile, Lazio is hoping newly signed Germany forward Miroslav

Klose can recuperate in time from a left knee injury.

Roma and Lazio both have eight points from their opening five

matches, and trail Serie A leader Juventus by three points.
