Lazio coach Inzaghi concedes Roma deserved more than derby draw

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi concedes Roma deserved more from Sunday's derby draw.

The two teams finished 1-1 as Edin Dzeko's Roma opener was cancelled out by Francesco Acerbi's equaliser via a Paul Lopez goalkeeping howler.

Roma were better than us, it's fair to say it," said Inzaghi.

“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.

“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."
