Totti: It was the perfect derby

Roma captain Francesco Totti is still buzzing after his goalscoring role in 'the perfect derby'.

The talismanic captain bagged himself a brace in a 2-0 win that gives Roma a shot of qualifying for next year's Champions League.

It was also Roma's fifth straight victory in the derby.

"How many emotions!!!" Totti wrote on his official blog. "For me it was the derby of dreams, the perfect derby. I have always wished to play a derby like that.

"Winning thanks to two of my goals is simply fantastic! Beating Lazio always gives a unique feeling and moreover getting on the scoresheet for a Roman and a true Romanista like me represents a double satisfaction.

"We are enjoying this success for a moment. But then we'll quickly start looking towards our objectives. We absolutely have to get into the Champions League next year. We'll do everything to reach the top four positions in the League.

"For this reason, we'll go to Florence with every intention of winning the game."
