Lazio seals its ticket to Champions next season

With a goal from Ciro Immobile to Luis Alberto’s pass, it was what defined Lazio’s comeback against Cagliari. And the goal put the Italian above Cristiano in the fight for the Serie A goalscorer trophy.

Those led by Simone Inzaghi signed a victory that returns Lazio to play the Champions League group stage after 13 years away and all thanks to the comeback against Cagliari 2-1, which leaves them with options to stay third or even seconds of Serie A, that until before the break due to the world pandemic, were in the fight with Juventus for the Scudetto but after that sudden situation, they lowered the level winning only 3 of their last 9 matches.

The visiting goalkeeper denied Inzaghi’s team 1-0 up to 4 times with a spectacular performance and just before the end of the first half Gio Simeone shot with his right leg and placed at the right post of the local goalkeeper to break his drought and open the scoring that although it was unfair because the locals had done more, they were going to rest with a partial defeat of 0-1.

Already in the second half and just 2 minutes after the start, those led Simone Inzaghi tied the actions by means of a right hand from the Milinkovic-Savic crescent that entered through the left goalkeeper’s squad that this time could not do anything to avoid the goal.

Ciro Immobile had an impressive opportunity after Caicedo put a ball into the area and the Italian controlled and shot of “volea” but the visiting goalkeeper put his hands back that this time were helped by the post to save what would have been the 2-1 for the locals who arrived shortly thereafter at minute 60′ and with a well-known formula. Luis Alberto (who is the maximum assistant in Serie A) enabled Ciro with a vertical assist and the latter with a subtle left leg would make the final 2-1 and that would also put him a goal above Cristiano in the fight for the tournament scorer trophy.
