In the 29th round of the Italian Serie A, Lazio beat Torino (1: 2) and gained three important points. Despite the victory, the Turin controversy turned out to be unfortunate for the Romans. The Eagles have left without leaders against Milan.
In the first half of the match, the main referee first warned Ciro Immobile for playing with his hands, and then showed the yellow card to Felipe Caicedo. As a result, it turned out that these warnings were the 5th of the season for both players, which is why they will have to miss the upcoming match against Milan due to disqualification. So, Lazio will be without leaders in the match.
“It’s unfortunate that Immobile received a yellow card, but the handball is punished this way, even though he accidentally found himself facing the ball.
Also, we don’t expect the injured players to return to us soon. But the good thing is that Danilo Cataldi will most likely return to the team.
We will see if Correa will be able to play in the center-forward position. We will have to change the tactics of the game, “said Massimiliano Farris, assistant to Lazio’s head coach Simone Inzaghi.
Recall that the Eagles were losing the match against Torino due to Andrea Belotti’s goal. But Lazio were able to turn the game around in the second half – Immobile and Marco Parolo showed themselves. After this victory, the Romans scored 68 points and are 4 points behind the leader Juventus in the championship race.
In the current draw of Serie A, Ciro has scored 29 goals in 29 matches and is the sole leader of the scorers’ dispute. Meanwhile, the team’s second scorer, Felipe Caicedo, has scored eight goals and two assists.
Recall that “Stadio Olimpico” will host the match between Lazio and Milan on July 4.
