Roma earned a deserved 2-0 win over Lazio in the in Serie A on Saturday evening, courtesy of goals from Mkhitaryan and Pedro.

The Giallorossi were comfortable victors and went ahead as Edin showed great strength to into the box and set up Mkhitaryan, before a fine Pedro goal after the break secured the bragging rights.

Dzeko’s dominance up front caused plenty of trouble for Lazio’s defence and Francesco Acerbi was dimissed late on for a second yellow card after fouling the Bosnian.

The veteran striker was a handful throughout and provided a wonderful assist for Mkhitaryan as he forced his way past Aberbi and into the box. Dzeko then prompted the Lazio defender into a second offence late on, whilst he came close to with some good efforts.
