Lazio hadn’t lost the league game after a Derby della Capitale victory for the last nine years until last weekend’s loss to Bologna.
As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the broken streak represents the tough moment that the Biancocelesti are currently experiencing, with the 3-0 loss to Bologna on the weekend being a bitter pill to swallow.
