Lazio set the tone early in the recent edition of the Rome Derby. A quick goal from Ciro Immobile coupled with a thunderous strike from Luis Alberto gave the home side the early 2-0 lead.

Lazio did not look back as it clinched a 3-0 win. And for Italian journalist Mario Sconcerti, he notes that the two early goals from Lazio were crucial f0r the side in the match.

Sconcerti spoke to TuttoMercatoWeb about the result and just how important it was for Lazio to get off to such a dominant start in the derby.

It is one of the few complete teams. It was the worst team for Roma to meet.

By scoring two goals immediately, they immediately oriented the match. Then they have a great team personality. I was convinced they would win.

It sure was key for Lazio to not only build on such a lead but also to maintain it to the conclusion of the match. The Biancocelesti has had several blown leads in Serie A fixtures this season.
