Inzaghi: ‘Roma the better side’

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi admits Roma were the better side in the Rome derby. “It’s fair to say that they were better than us.”

The match ended in a 1-1 draw, but the Giallorossi had the better of the game, hitting the post through Lorenzo Pellegrini.

“Roma were better than us, it’s fair to say it,” said Inzaghi in his post-game press conference.

“I have to review the game to understand it. I congratulate [Paulo] Fonseca, they played a great game. we held on tight for the point and the fact that we kept the same distance from Roma in the table.”

Inzaghi was asked if he was surprised by Roma, but states that some of his players were not at their best.

“We are all quite used to Roma, compared to our usual standards we were technically wrong and some players who were not at their best.

“We never managed to get out with our usual calm. Cengiz Under had an excellent game, he was a problem on that side from start to finish.

“They kept a great rhythm throughout the game.”
