Former Roma defender Nicolas Burdisso discussed Lazio’s incredible 3-0 derby win over Roma last week on Friday in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today.

The pressure from the fans was like having a policeman watching you. If you don’t have a crowd you can sometimes relax.

Then you have to be objective and say that Lazio deservedly won.

Lazio’s derby win saw them rise to 7th in the league table after 18 games, sitting on 31 points, three behind 4th place Roma.

The Biancocelesti have won their last three consecutive league outings, working to fix their spot in the table after a sluggish first half of the season domestically.

The Giallorossi are now leaving a period of good form, having earnt only one point from their last two games, after having won the prior three.
