Over the early portions of the Serie A season, AS Roma was one side that got off to a promising start thanks to a series of key results. But since then, Roma’s long-time rivals in Lazio has climbed all the way up to draw level at 40 points in the league table.

Former Italian midfielder Roberto Scarnecchia is drawing some comparisons between the two long-time rivals. For Scarnecchia, there is one major aspect that puts Lazio just above Roma in league play this season.

Scarnecchia spoke a bit about the two rivals, with comments being relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

Roma as a team are more competitive, but Lazio are much more of a team. They are more of a group. As a number, however, Roma are better equipped.

While the two sides are level in league points with 40, Lazio does own the bragging rights over Roma this season thanks to its recent crucial 3-0 win.
