Derby-day, no goals. It’s an ok result considering what Roma have done in Champions League and what Lazio was looking for in this match. With Inter Milan drawing means this is a square result that keeps the situation stable for the race to third place.
Roma played better the first half, Lazio were kept at bay with the usual pressing high in defense. Peres for Florenzi the only change from the team that beat Barcelona. The same Peres, unsung hero in Donetsk, yesterday went to hit the woodwork from an easy chance.
Dzeko would do the same in the dying seconds of the match, hit the bar and went close with some effort to win the match.
A ten-men Lazio were slightly better in the second half and Immobile squandered a golden chance in the end as well. But Roma went closest and the fans were left with a bitter taste in the end. But no regrets this time.
The incredible perfromance in Champions League was too good to be true. We take the point and look forward to beat Genoa in midweek and SPAL at the weekend before heading to Anfield. Pure adrenaline.
