Francesco Totti has admitted that equalling the record of nine goals in a Rome derby is his 'most beautiful'.
The club captain joined Dino Da Costa and Marco Delvecchio on nine goals against Lazio during this evening's 1-1 draw.
And the forward has conceded that it was a tough encounter.
“We threw it away in the first half,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “Unfortunately we did not get into the game immediately and they put us under great difficulty.
“Hernanes' [penalty] miss has changed the game and we did better after that.
“I wanted [the record] so much, it is my most beautiful record. But I wanted the win more.”
