As part of Matchday 18 of Serie A, Lazio faced AS Roma at the Olympico stadium for a necessarily spicy Roman derby. Winners (2-0) against Parma last weekend, Simone Inzaghi’s men could get closer to the top 5 if successful. For their part, Paulo Fonseca’s men stood up to Inter (2-2) and had a great opportunity to pick up on the Nerazzurri in the standings. The meeting started ideally for Inzaghi’s men who opened the scoring in the quarter of an hour of play by Immobile.
The Italian striker took advantage of a counter strike from Lazzari to adjust Lopez with his right foot (1-0, 14th). Nine minutes later, Lazio made the break by Luis Alberto well served by Lazzari (2-0, 23rd). The interested party offered himself a double after the hour of play on a center of Akpa Akpro (3-0, 67th). With their ninth victory of the season, Lazio moved up to seventh place in Serie A.
