Without a single doubt, Lazio’s biggest rivals are Roma. The two clubs have been vying fierce battles throughout respective histories, fighting for supremacy in the Italian capital. Their matches are considered among the fiercest around the globe. During the 1979/80 season, a Lazio fan Vincenzo Paparelli lost his life after being hit in the eye by an emergency rocket thrown by a rival Roma fan.
The animosity was further fuelled by a minority of Lazio’s ultras who have traditionally been connected with fascism and racist inclinations. Black Roma players have often been a particular target during the Derby della Capitale.
In terms of other rivalries, the Biancocelesti have a particularly fiery relationship with a couple of other Italian football clubs such as Milan, Fiorentina and Juventus but also Napoli, Livorno and Pescara.
Founded in 1900 as the Societa Podistica, the original Lazio played as an amateur side for a decade. Well known for their light-blue shirts, Lazio are two-time Serie A winners and proud owners of seven Coppa Italia titles. The blue club from the capital also lifted the Supercoppa Italiana on four different occasions. In terms of European success, Lazio won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1998/99 and consequently lifted the UEFA Super Cup as well.
Lazio play their games at the Stadio Olimpico, which is a shared home with their hated rivals, Roma. The Biancocelesti are said to be the sixth-most supported football club in the country. However, they come second in Rome, which is actually the position they are most interested in changing.
