Roma and Lazio have one of the most emotional football rivalries in Serie A. The first derby of the Rome-based competition between the two teams occurred on 8 December 1929. Roma won 1-0 on a goal by Rodolfo Volk. Lazio’s first win, which happened on 23 October 1932, ended with a score of 2-1. The teams have met a total of 176 times.
Known by many names, including the Derby della Capitale and the Rome Derby, it is a sometime bitter intercity rivalry that has been marked by fans engaging in name-calling, racism, and other types of offensive behavior. The seeds of this enmity go back to when Roma was founded in 1927.
