The Giallorossi suffered their second Serie A defeat of the season against Maurizio Sarri’s men, who stormed right into a 2-0 lead in after 20 minutes on the Stadio Olimpico due to goals from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Pedro.

Ibanez pulled one back for Roma 4 minutes earlier than half-time, however slightly below 20 minutes into the second half Felipe Anderson restored Lazio’s two-goal advantage.

Jordan Veretout fired in a penalty six minutes later to present Mourinho’s side a glimmer of hope, however they have been unable to seek out an all-important equaliser towards their bitter rivals.

Roma have now lost two of their last three league matches, having additionally slumped to a 3-0 defeat away at Verona last weekend.

The second goal might’ve been 1-1, it went to 2-0. The second yellow for Lucas Leiva was essential too, as a result of taking part in towards 10 men makes a giant distinction. Pellegrini acquired a crimson, as we speak Leiva acquired nothing.


“I believe my team was the very best on the field as we speak. If you concede three goals, you made errors, however the second and third have been counter-attacks and the second was a scenario where the team was anticipating a penalty in favour and never a counter against.
“We dominated, we gave Lazio big issues, they managed the ultimate minutes the way in which they wished to, and since the referee allowed them to do so.”
