Lazio silenced many doubters in the recent 3-0 win over AS Roma. For a Lazio side that had garnered its fair share of critics due to its recent underperformances, the Biancocelesti orchestrated what can be argued as its best showing of the Serie A season so far.

Italian journalist Riccardo Cucchi is much in awe of how Lazio responded to adversity in the Rome Derby. Cucchi views Lazio’s performance as not only a match in which the Biancocelesti took home the much-needed three points but one in which it dominated on both sides of the ball.

Cucchi spoke about Lazio’s statement win and takeaways from its performance, with comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

It seemed to me that I was seeing the beautiful Lazio of last season.  An extraordinary and perfect team, in which everyone helped each other.

Lazio canceled the opponent. The superiority expressed was extraordinary. Even tactically Inzaghi got the game right, confusing Fonseca, who did not find a way to change the game. The quality of everyone’s performance was very high. The performance of Lazzari and Luis Alberto was impressive. Lazio was close to perfection.

AS Roma has only come away with one win in the last six editions of the Rome Derby. Over these select fixtures, Lazio has picked up a pair of 3-0 wins to go along with three draw results.
