Gianluca Mancini, the Roma defender, is pleased that the side seemed to demonstrate clear progress from their recent big-game disappointments. 
 
“We can all make mistakes, but you can’t keep repeating them,” Mancini said. 
 
“Playing every three days means there are going to be ups and downs, but that’s no excuse. 
 
"We have to stay focused when the intensity rises and not give much away. To stay up near the top of the table we can’t afford to concede many goals."
 
The last meeting between Lazio and Roma in a league game was on 26 January 2020.
 
The two Rome clubs played to a 1-1 draw in a match which was played at the Stadio Olimpico.
