Marusic: "It Was Very Disappointing, Everything Changed After The Opener. We Were Punished Severely, So We Can Only Apologize To The Fans."

Adam Marusic insists Roma were underwhelming in the 3-0 win and Lazio should have won a penalty as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic may have broken his nose.

Lazio fell a goal down after just a minute of play and finally gave up 3-0 through a brace from Tammy Abraham and a free-kick from Lorenzo Pellegrini.

"It was very disappointing, everything changed after the opener, they started with more determination," Marusic told Lazio Style Radio.

"When you're down 3-0 in the first half, it's hard to come back. We've been talking about it all week, we predicted Roma would fight and we should too. We didn't and we were punished severely, so we can only apologize to the fans."

"We know how important this game is for them. I don't think Roma play well because we tried to come back in the second half but the goal came early so it was difficult to get back into the game mentally."

The Biancoceleste also had a chance to earn a penalty for an incident 11 minutes into the game, with the Giallorossi still 1-0 up, when Roger Ibanez elbowed Milinkovic-Savic in the nose.

"He was elbowed in the face, probably broken nose.  The referee said there was contact, but still, he didn't blow the whistle."

The defeat made Maurizio Sarri's team slip to seventh place in the standings with 49 points from 29 matches played.
