The Rome derby between Lazio and Roma started amid horrific scenes of rival fans battling it out with weapons and their fists in the stands. On the pitch it was the Aquile who struck first, Tommaso Rocchi latching onto a fine ball into the box to fire Lazio into a 13th minute lead. Lazio should have gone 2-nil up at the start of the second half but Sergio Floccari saw his spot-kick saved by Julio Sergio. And after missing their opportunity Taddei went up the other end and won a penalty for the Romans that Mirko Vucinic converted from the spot. Ten minutes later Mirko Vucinic blasted Roma into the lead when the centre-forward walloped a free-kick into the net at lightning speed. Lazio’s mach ended on a sour note when Ledesma saw red for needlessly running his mouth at the ref, and the bad blood continued after the final whistle as the teams faced off against each other.
