Got lucky thanks to the linesman’s flag after allowing Borriello’s cross to reach Greco. Then proved unable to stop Borriello’s weak penalty from trickling over the line.
Roma found him difficult to beat without literally tearing strips off him. Always willing to put his body on the line in his battle with Borriello, but at fault for the second penalty.
Did well to help out with the attacking work on Lazio’s left as he continued his excellent start to the season. Tucked in well to protect the two centre-halves whenever necessary.
Stood up well to the task of keeping out Mirko Vucinic for lengthy spells and often found himself caught in the crossfire as he sweated blood for the cause.
Got forward with his usual relish down the right while also putting in a fair shift at the back. Many will feel he was harshly done to on the penalty call.
Kept things ticking over early on as Lazio looked to get on top. Looked for the killer passes later on as his side chased the game somewhat.
At the heart of the majority of Lazio’s better moves, but could so easily have equalised when he saw his shot saved by Julio Sergio. Surprisingly substituted with his team needing a goal.
Just another one of those standard Cristian Brocchi performances where he was unwilling to give even half a yard in the midfield duel. Came up short at times tehnically though.
Great first time cross almost sent in Rocchi in the first half and his backheel set up Floccari for a good chance in the second period. Would surely have scored had Riise not pulled him back for Lazio's big penalty shout.
Couldn’t quite stretch far enough to turn in Mauri’s cross and really got into a clear position thereafter before being replaced by Zarate in the second half.
Led the line well and so nearly got in on the goal scoring act when Mauri sent him in. Caused plenty of trouble for the Roma back line, and not just when connecting with Mexes’ head in the second half. Had a close shave when his header looked to have beaten Julio Sergio.
Made a crucial stop with his feet as Hernanes bore down on goal and generally looked safe, though it's debatable whether he had Foggia's effort covered as it suck the woodwork.
Tyical barnstorming performance going forward and had a hand in what seemed to have been Roma's opener for Greco.
Booked for resorting to foul means to halt Hernanes. Had answers for the runs of Zarate having been beaten once or twice by Mauri.
Seemed to have got himself caught out of position at times, but managed to show good recovery to help keep a clean sheet.
A decent defensive effort up against Floccari and took a bruised head for the cause.
Unlucky not to give Roma the lead with a fierce low strike. Faded thereafter, but was a strong character in the midfield to-and-fro.
D. De Rossi
Left to dictate play from the middle of the field in the absence of Pizarro and did so to great effect.
Proved a good fit in the Roma side with excellent play on the ball and good support off it. Could easily have had added a second when he struck the bar.
Tried hard to cause Lazio trouble, but pulled a muscle and was soon replace by Greco.
Didn’t have the first touch to take him through on goal when Vucinic had done well early on and was equally flattering in front of goal before just about turning in his second half penalty.
Clearly a threat to the Lazio back line, and was also to be found tracking back when necessary. Capped off a gat week by scoring from the spot late on.
- 12 T. Berni
Late replacement for Stendardo.
- 14 Javier Garrido
- 23 M. Bresciano
Surprising replacement for Hernanes, but so nearly levelled when he struck the bar.
- 11 Matuzalém
Came on for Rocchi and immediately caused the Roma back line problems. Could so easily have unlocked the Lupi defence in making a great impact.
- 1 B. Lobonț
- 2 Cicinho
Replaced the unfortunate Menez and was unlucky enough to have a goal ruled out from one of his first touches. Not left wanting thereafter as he did little wrong.
Replaced Perrotta for final 10.
- 7 D. Pizarro
- 8 Adriano
Late replacement for Burdisso, and immediately fooled Dias into conceding a penalty.
