The Ecuadorian Felipe Caicedo, with his third consecutive goal and the second of them after 90, rescued this Sunday a valuable point for Lazio against Juventus (1-1) in the seventh match of Serie A.
A goal from the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo had overtaken Juventus by a quarter of an hour, but in 95 Caicedo, with a great goal from the Argentine Joaquín Correa prevented the defeat of Lazio, who could not count on Ciro Immobile, the Brazilian Lucas Leiva or the Albanian Tomas Strakosha,.
And is that Lazio, which did not officially confirm that the three mentioned players suffer from coronavirus, is in the middle of an investigation by the Prosecutor’s Office of the Italian Football Federation for alleged violations in the sanitary protocol.
The match started in the best way for Juventus, who went ahead thanks to goal number 27 of 2020 for Cristiano, who took advantage of a good cross from the right wing of Colombian Juan Guillermo Cuadrado.
CR7 was the most dangerous of his team, in which Argentine Paulo Dybala started on the bench and played the last fifteen. The Portuguese brushed the possible second goal before the break, but his powerful shot from the edge of the area crashed into the wood.
He retired in ’75 to make way for Dybala and in the final stretch Juventus suffered from the prideful reaction of Lazio, who had a prize at the last breath, again thanks to Caicedo.
The Ecuadorian, who had scored the 4-3 goal last week in the Torino field in 98 and the 1-1 goal in 82 of the Champions League duel against Zenit Saint Petersburg, signed a new goal that rescued a valuable point for Lazio.
Juventus was third, three points behind leaders Milan, who play this Sunday against Verona, while Lazio is ninth, five points behind Milan.
