Italian Serie A

Lazio 1-2 Roma

Roma celebrate reaching the Champions League

Roma sealed second place in Serie A and a spot in next season's Champions League thanks to Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa's late winner in a dramatic Rome derby.

The former Newcastle defender, 26, rose to head in Miralem Pjanic's free-kick with five minutes remaining.

Roma took the lead via Juan Iturbe's close-range finish before Filip Djordjevic headed in Lazio's equaliser.

Third-placed Lazio need a point against fourth-placed Napoli on the last day to seal a Champions League place.

Rafael Benitez's Napoli team trail Lazio by three points after losing 3-1 against champions Juventus on Saturday.

France international Yanga-Mbiwa joined Newcastle from Montpellier for £6.7m in 2013 but, after a loan spell with Roma earlier this season, finalised a permanent move to the Italians for £5.5m in January.
