Local bragging rights and the chance to lord it over Italy's traditionally stronger northern clubs won't be the only prizes at stake this weekend when Roma host Lazio in the "Derby della Capitale".After Roma's 3-2 Champions League win over Bayer Leverkusen Wednesday, coach Rudi Garcia launched his own appeal.Lazio are missing influential central defender Stefan De Vrij, who in midweek was ruled out for six months due to knee surgery.Champions Juventus, meanwhile, are still nine points off the pace but, following their 1-1 Champions League draw away to Borussia Monchengladbach in midweek, morale is high.Elsewhere, AC Milan, only five points off the pace, host Atalanta Saturday looking for a fourth win on the trot, while Napoli, fourth at just two points adrift, are expected to account for Udinese at the San Paolo.
