The recent Rome Derby fixture provided multiple Lazio players with an opportunity to have a pivotal showing in arguably the biggest fixture of the season so far for the club. And to the team’s credit, there were a couple of players who upped their game in this match.

Former Italian forward Christian Vieri is lauding several players who did just that. Vieri highlighted these players, with comments being relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

I saw a great Lazio, from all points of view. They have great quality. Forget the first goal, which came from a single mistake, but you have Immobile, Milinkovic, Luis Alberto. They are strong players.

For 3-4 years, it has been on a great path. This year a little up and down, but I like how they play.  They were more aggressive, they were hungrier. It’s a tough team. They wanted to win more than Roma.

The win for Lazio built on momentum that the club already had with the previous back-to-back Serie A wins. Now, the club surely will be aiming to extend this winning streak in league play.
