Sergej Milinkovic-Savic recognises Lazio ‘finally played a great game’ to beat Roma 3-2 in the derby, so this can boost their confidence going forward.

It was a dramatic Derby della Capitale, with the Aquile running out 3-2 winners thanks to Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Pedro and Felipe Anderson.

“We really needed our fans, they came in numbers and we gave them a wonderful game, so they can celebrate and go home happy,” the Serbia international told DAZN.

“We finally played a great game, much better than the previous performances. We needed a victory in the derby to go forward with a different feeling and confidence.

“I scored many important goals, but it’s my third in the derby and I will try to score more in future too.”

Roger Ibanez and a very controversial Jordan Veretout penalty made it a tense finale at the Stadio Olimpico.

“We need to improve a great deal, as we score one or two goals, lose our hunger and the other team gets back into it. We have to really work on keeping that consistency.”
