Lazio secured a 3-0 victory over their rival AS Roma in the Derby della Capitale in a well-fought battle.

As they try and fight their way back into the top-four in Serie A, they’ll need to continue beating clubs ahead of them in the standings like they did on Friday night.

After the match, Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi spoke to the media, where Sky Sport relayed his postgame comments. 

The Italian tactician explained the importance of the win, and if they can play with this strength going forward, they can find their way back into the top of the standings. 

I think we had a great match with anger and aggression. The guys were wonderful; we were very good, we deserved this victory. It gives us great satisfaction because we wanted three points very badly.

We have dropped some points so far this season; we went 45 days with 14 Covid cases playing every three days. But today, we have shown that we want to stay at the top of the standings.

The Biancocelesti have won three fixtures in a row, and while they sit in seventh place with 31 points, they’re two points from fourth place. 

Lazio will need some luck from clubs ahead of them to drop points as Juventus FC and Atalanta BC have two more games in hand, but it’s not a crazy idea to believe that Lazio can finish in the top four.
