Garcia’s men in the Derby della Capitale at Stadio Olimpico with a 2-1 win over their arch-rivals Lazio have secured the second place, meaning the Champions league place for the next season. The Argentine attacker Juan Iturbe gave the lead to Roma in the 73rd minute, while Lazio cancelled out Iturbe’s goal eight minutes later. Still, a point which would be enough for Lazio, failed to keep as France international Yanga-Mbiwa in the 85th minute heads Pjanic’s whipped delivery past Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti.
Roma with this victory secured the 2nd place with 70 points, four more than Lazio who will need to look for the Champions league qualifications place against Napoli, at Stadio San Paolo.
