The giallorossi play an unfortunate match at the Stadio Olimpico and Lazio stub the Lupi without mercy. The Champions League is still three points away but the overall feelings are negative.
There’s nothing to say about Lazio‘s win. The biancoazzurri played a remarkable match in front of their fans and deserved the three points today. Simone Inzaghi tactically outperformed Di Francesco dominating in midfield and putting pressure on a terrifying Roma’s defense.
The giallorossi do not have sufficient team balance and systematically suffer the opponents. Today, Roma suffered the first goal for the 11th time this season, a vulnerable and mentally weak team. Although the Lupi had the opportunity to score the equalizer in the second half, Di Francesco’s side never gave the impression to be able to counteract Lazio’s athletic and tactical power.
Roma collect another burning Serie A defeat but the giallorossi must look forward to the next big event of their season. The match against Porto is around the corner and the fans want a prompt reaction.
