It was Lazio who emerged from Sunday’s Rome derby with the bragging rights after sealing a 3-2 win over AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

Goals inside the opening 20 minutes from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Pedro put Lazio 2-0 up before Roger Ibanez pulled one back for Jose Mourinho’s side before half-time.

Felipe Anderson restored Lazio’s two-goal advantage midway through the second half, while Jordan Veretout’s 69th-minute goal from the penalty spot wasn’t enough to earn the Giallorossi a share of the spoils.

In the aftermath of the match, a brilliant clip involving veteran winger Pedro has gone viral on social media.

The clip shows the 34-year-old destroying Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo with two fantastic pieces of skill in the space of five seconds.

The Spaniard wins possession and then buys himself a yard of space with an exquisite little touch.

Predicting Zaniolo was about to charge at him, Pedro shaped as if he was about to clear the ball before dropping his shoulder and getting the ball to safety.

Mourinho came up against Pedro on numerous occasions when he was managing Real Madrid and the forward was playing for Pep Guardiola’s revered Barcelona side.

He then signed the World Cup winner during his second stint with Chelsea in 2015.

Pedro spent five seasons at Stamford Bridge, where he won the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League.

He then moved to AS Roma in 2020 before joining their arch-rivals Lazio following Mourinho’s arrival in the summer.
