Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto was a catalyst for the club in its 3-0 win over AS Roma. He scored two key goals, created two goal-scoring chances, won six ground duels and completed two tackles.

With his stout performance in the Rome Derby, the Spanish playmaker was among the 11 players selected by WhoScored for its Serie A Team of the Week. Alberto earned an 8.9 rating, which is among the highest of the season for him so far.

This surely was among the best performances by a Lazio midfielder in the Rome Derby in quite a while. Alberto simply had his way when on the ball against the club’s bitter rivals.

Alberto and Lazio now look ahead to continuing to climb up the Serie A table. This win over Roma pushed the side back in the race for a top-four spot in the league table, which is certainly now a realistic goal for the club.
