Lazio eyes Champions League spot after win | Ralph Lauren

Must Read


Lazio have revived their chances of staying in the Champions League by convincingly beating third-placed Roma 3-0 in their Serie A derby.

Luis Alberto scored twice and Ciro Immobile also found the target as Lazio controlled the match throughout on Friday.

Lazio moved up to seventh, two points behind fourth-placed Juventus, who face a challenging visit to Inter Milan on Sunday; and three points behind Roma, who saw their title hopes fade.

It was a third straight league win for Lazio, who face Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions League next month.

Last season Golden Boot winner Immobile opened the scoring 14 minutes in by completing a counterattack when Roma defenders Chris Smalling and Ibanez both slipped.

Lazio doubled the lead nine minutes later when Ibanez was again left on the ground following strong play from Manuel Lazzari, who set up Alberto for a clear look.

Immobile threatened throughout yet it was Alberto who sealed it with a shot around a defender into the far corner in the 67th.

In a match usually marked by colourful fan choreography, no spectators were allowed inside the Stadio Olimpico due to the coronavirus pandemic.
