Roma’s Edoardo Bove was hit by a beer bottle thrown by the crowd during last night’s Rome derby that ended with three red cards.

The 22-year-old went down after he was struck on the back by the bottle. He was subsequently substituted in the 76th minute before throwing the bottle away.

Mattia Zaccagni scored the only goal.

Bove was a substitute as A.S Roma lost to arch-rivals Lazio in a tense Coppa Italia quarter-final.

In what was a feisty encounter, two Roma players; Sardar Azmoun and Gianluca Mancini were with the later occurring after the final whistle, with while Lazio’s Pedro was also sent off.

Zaccagni scored the clincher from a penalty awarded for a foul by Dean Huijsen on Valentin Castellanos.

Roma boss Jose Mourinho has lost four of his six derbies since taking charge in 2021.

“It’s always painful to lose, doubly so in the derby,” he told Mediaset.

“It’s a modern football penalty, the sort that wouldn’t have been given before VAR. The referee didn’t give it when he was three metres away but with VAR he then gives it.”
