Spoils shared in the ‘Derby della Capitale’.
Roman rivals Lazio and AS Roma played out a hard-fought 1-1 draw in the Roma derby on Monday night at the Olympic Stadium, although it was Lazio who finished the match the more disappointed of the two sides.
Brazil midfield player Hernanes gave Lazio an early lead with a sensational 16th-minute finish, however, he then turned from hero to villain when he missed from the penalty spot just after the half-time break.
And, that spot-kick miss was to prove very costly as Roma captain and all-time leading scorer Francesco Totti levelled matters up moments later, also from 12 yardsd, although his side were then unable to take advantage of the subsequent dismissal of Lazio defender Giuseppe Bavia, and the match ended in a draw.
