Lazio and Roma: Clash in Coppa Italia final next month

The Rome rivals were due to face off at the Stadio Olimpico on May 26 at 9pm local time, but kick-off has now been brought forward to 6pm following negotiations involving the two clubs, the Lega Serie A, the Italian Olympic Committee, police and local government officials.

The time change was deemed necessary after the most league meeting between between Roma and Lazio on April 8 was marred by violence outside the Stadio Olimpico.
