Europa League, Lazio-Lokomotiv Moscow 2-0


Sep 30, 2021

Lazio after the success in the derby beat Lokomotiv Moscow 2-0 in the Europa League, redeeming the defeat against Galatasaray in the first match of the group. Sarri re-proposes Strakosha between the posts and relies on turnover, except in attack where he confirms the trident made up of Pedro, Immobile and Felipe Anderson. The biancocelesti immediately start strong and at 13 ‘take the lead: Felipe Anderson serves Pedro who puts a soft ball in the middle on which Basic throws himself into the net with a header for the 1-0. Lazio continues to push and almost double with Immobile on more than one occasion. At 27 ‘Lokomotiv shows up, filtering in the area for Smolov who kicks ahead of Acerbi, Strakosha covers the first post well and saves his foot. But at 38 ‘Sarri’s team doubles: on a corner Acerbi hits the head on the near post and Patric deflects in front of goal, beating Guilherme. Lokomotiv fails to oppose and in the second half the music does not change with Lazio hitting the crossbar in the 64th minute: Lazzari stretches out on the right, Milinkovic serves Pedro whose first intention shot is printed on the crossbar and on the post. Lazio wastes a lot, however. At 76 ‘Milinkovic-Savic dribbles in front of goal, then the Serbian looks for the touch underneath and grace Lokomotiv. A minute passes and Raul Moro serves Felipe Anderson, who does not frame the door from his footsteps.
