AS Roma 1-1 Lazio highlights: The highly anticipated Rome Derby arrived again for Italian football fans on Monday as AS Roma play host to Lazio at Olympico stadium.
Both teams are searching for maximum points to continue their hunt for European finish by the end of season and it was Lazio that managed to get themselves in front when Hernanes' brilliant left foot shot stormed passed into Roma's net. The home side were really keen on leveling things up as soon as possible, but the first half ended for their rival's favor.
Early In the second half, Lazio had the chance to extend their lead but Hernanes' put his penalty effort wide off goal. The Brazilian quickly turned himself into villain as his clumsy tackling inside the penalty area gave Roma a shot at equalizing from the spot kick. Francesco Totti scored from the penalty spot and collected his ninth goal in Rome Derby. No more goals were scored after that as both sides shared the spoils as the final whistle was blown.
