As Matheus Pereira’s penalty double clinched a 3-2 Premier League win at local rival Wolves on Saturday, West Bromwich Albion prevailed for the first time under new manager Sam Allardyce.
Since replacing the sacked Slaven Bilic, Allardyce has struggled to win any of his first five matches.
Pereira brought Albion ahead of Fabio Silva’s goals from the spot and at half-time Willy Boly put Wolves in the driving seat.
After the break, Semi Ajayi equalized and Pereira’s second penalty sealed West Brom’s first victory in eight league matches.
On Friday, Lazio cruised to a 3-0 win over city rival Roma, equaling its best Serie A derby victory.
The win lifted Lazio to seventh on 31 points, just two points behind fourth-placed Juventus. With 34 points, Roma remains third, six points off leader AC Milan having played one more game as well.
In the 14th minute for his 12th goal of the season, Ciro Immobile opened the scoring. In the 23rd and 67th minutes, Luis Alberto scored the other two, both with precise shots.
As Juventus faces Inter, Roma could be overtaken in the table later this weekend.
