Lazio picked up its second win in a row following the 2-0 result against Parma. As has been the case as of late, this fixture provided the Biancocelesti with tactical challenges. But still, Simone Inzaghi’s side willed through to notch the three points from the fixture.
Former Italian defender Ernesto Calisti is well pleased with how the side picked up the win in convincing fashion. He notes that Lazio had its fair share of struggles over the fixture but still did just enough to claim the victory.
The former Lazio defender spoke further about the result, with comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.
At Parma, Lazio struggled in the first half but recovered in the second. They won with merit and it was important to get the three points ahead of the derby.
Felipe Caicedo was one top performer from the fixture. He scored a key goal in the second half, which gave the forward back-to-back matches with a goal scored. Calisti believes that the Ecuadorian forward has done enough to showcase that he deserves to start for the club.
He deserved to be a starter. He’s an important player; he covers the ball well and can score goals. We all criticized him, then he grew a lot. He has important qualities for this team.
It sure will be interesting to see whether the forward will pick up another start in the Rome Derby.
