Coach Alberto Malesani praised Bologna for coming from behind to force a draw against Roma.
“I think Lazio are slightly ahead of Roma this season,” Malesani declared to Raisport.
“The opposition definitely felt the fatigue from their midweek exploits in the Champions League and we did well to take advantage.
“We sealed an important point thanks to the hard work and effort put in by the squad during the week.
“This side is full of enthusiasm and I am happy for the boys today.
“After a slow start in the first half we broke our duck after the break and this changed us completely.
“The ball moved around much more fluidly from there on and Roma started to get into difficulty.
“Its never easy to come away from the Olimpico with something and with a little more luck we could even have snatched the win this afternoon.”
