A goal by the Argentine born in Mexico Luka Romero defined the match for the Roman club in the 69th minute, taking advantage of a rejection by goalkeeper Michele Di Gregorio after a first shot by the Spanish Pedro Rodríguez (69).

The team coached by Maurizio Sarri now has 30 points, the same figure as AC Milan, which it surpasses by a better difference in goals scored and allowed (plus 18 against plus 13). The Rossoneri team stumbled on Tuesday when they drew 0-0 at Cremonese (18th in the table).

In Thursday’s other challenge, Turin also won 1-0 at bottom Hellas Verona and retained fourth thanks to a Moise Kean perforation after 60 minutes.

Lazio and Juventus will meet on Sunday in the last match of Serie A, before the break for the World Cup in Qatar, to be played from November 20 to December 18.
