Football: AS Roma beat rivals Lazio in Rome derby to go top of Italian Serie A
MILAN (AFP) - Second-half goals from Federico Balzaretti and Adem Ljajic handed AS Roma a precious 2-0 derby win over Lazio to send the Giallorossi top of Italy's Serie A on Sunday.
Napoli, who were leaders ahead of Roma but with the same goals difference prior to this weekend, are away to a depleted AC Milan side in Sunday's late game.
Ahead of the San Siro fixture, Roma take the lead with a two-point cushion on Inter, who had gone top provisionally earlier Sunday following a 7-0 rout away to Sassuolo.
Fiorentina, in third, and fourth-placed Juventus are also just two points shy of Rudi Garcia's league leaders, with Napoli one point adrift in fifth.
