The Italian Serie A match of the 6th round ended with the celebration of Lazio. In the traditionally fierce Roman derby, Lazio defeated Roma with a 3-2 match score. Milinković-Savić took the lead for Lazio hitting the opening goal in the 10th minute when he concluded a nice action with a header for 1-0.
Lazio stunned Jose Mourinho’s Roma with a 3-2 Derby della Capitale victory, decided by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Pedro, and Felipe Anderson, but there was also controversy surrounding VAR. The noise of Lazio’s fans did not subside, and a new Lazio counter-attack flashed, which was concluded by Pedro with a precise shot from the top of the penalty area for 2-0.
However, Roma did not give up and it was a game in which they flew in all directions and a lot of goals were expected. Thus, Roma reduced at the end of the first part, and Ibanez scored a goal for 1-2 after the corner. In the 63rd minute, Lazio returned two-plus goals when a masterful dribble after the counter was performed by Immobile and he prepared everything for the scorer Felipe Anderson.
That goal didn’t knock down Roma either, who reduced it to 2-3 just six minutes later. The penalty kick was surely realized by Veretout. Although the chances on both sides of the net lingered until the end, they no longer shook and Lazio finally registered a win after four matches in a row without a victory.
