Despite the optimism surrounding this team heading in, an early onslaught from Lazio doomed Roma in similar fashion to last season.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. It’s an axiom that certainly feels like it can be applied to Roma after another derby defeat at the hands of Lazio that saw the Biancocelesti jump out to an early lead. Just like last season’s first Derby della Capitale, Roma was behind in the blink of an eye. So, despite the optimism that’d been swirling around Mourinho’s Roma, it didn’t feel all that different from the dire days of Fonseca.

This time around, Roma at least made a match of things—nearly finding an equalizer after twice being down by two goals. But, despite the Giallorossi’s frantic comeback attempt, it was too little too late. So, in this episode, we must get down to the nitty-gritty and try to figure out where it all went wrong for Roma against its bitter rivals.
