He's 35, was deemed surplus to requirements at a mid-table side, cost €300,000 and has only scored once for Inter since his January move. It's fair to say Tommaso Rocchi's transfer from Lazio to the Nerazzurri hasn't exactly set the world on fire.
Form aside, however, the Venetian has been a reliable goal threat throughout his career, and having spent almost a decade at their bitter rivals, Roma will know the forward well.
While still in the capital, Rocchi maintained that his aim was to score 100 goals for the Biancocelesti. Before him, it was a feat only achieved by heavyweights of the Italian game: Silvio Piola, Giuseppe Signori, Bruno Giordano and Giorgio Chinaglia. Rocchi's 105 goals in 284 appearances leaves him in good company.
He has also scored five against the Giallorossi, just one less than the aforementioned Piola, Serie A's highest-ever scorer and the man who scored more goals for Lazio than any other in the Derby della Capitale.
He'll be up against his old club should Inter reach the final, but until then, Laziali everywhere will be hoping Rocchi can put one past Roma for Inter—and for old times sake, for Lazio, too.
