Lazio’s Nicolo Casale: “We didn’t let Roma provoke us.”

Andy Mattioli

Lazio defender Nicolo Casale – who almost cost his team with a mistake that led to an own goal ultimately ruled off by the referee – spoke about the Biancocelesti’s victory in the Derby della Capitale despite Roma’s “provocations” following the red card for Roger Ibanez.

“We knew that after the red card they would try and stir up trouble. They always put on a scene, they’re insufferable,” Casale told Lazio Channel at full-time.

“We told each other not to fall into provocations otherwise it would have been difficult. We continued with our game and got the goal we deserved.”

“We did very well tonight. We kept the ball rolling and kept pushing. This is an important victory that should be celebrated as much as possible.”
