Lazio vs.  Sassuolo - Match Report - January 24, 2021

Rome (EFE) – Lazio, without the Spanish Luis Alberto, came back and beat Sassuolo 2-1 this Sunday at the Roman Olympic Stadium and, with his fourth consecutive triumph in Serie A, placed seventh, just two points away from the Champions League zone, their main goal this season.

A goal from Francesco Caputo after just six minutes put Roberto De Zerbi’s Sassuolo ahead, but a header from Serbian Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and a goal from Golden Boot Ciro Immobile twenty minutes from time gave Lazio all three points, which reached Napoli in qualifying.

Simone Inzaghi’s team, who could not count on Luis Alberto, who had surgery this week for appendicitis and who should return to training in the next few days, achieved their fourth consecutive victory, after those against Fiorentina, Parma and Roma.

Milinkovic-Savic was the lacial leader this Sunday, in a match in which Lazio managed to take the victory despite not practicing attractive football.

Of course, the Argentine Gonzalo Escalante failed in added time the possible third goal that would sentence the crash in advance and avoid the suffering of the last seconds for the Roman team.

Lazio came out with the Spanish Pepe Reina and Patric Gabarrón and the Argentine Joaquín Correa, former Sevilla player, as starters while the Ecuadorian Felipe Caicedo and Escalante jumped onto the field at the restart.
