He comes out of the Europa League with regrets
A goal in the 19 ‘of the second half of Gimenez, who entered the field for not even a minute, condemns Lazio to being eliminated from the Europa League. The biancocelesti close group F, with 4 teams all with 8 points, third for goal difference and will play the Conference League playoff in February. The Dutch win 1-0 game and win the group in front of the Danes of Midtyjlland who beat the Austrians of Sturm Graz 2-0. For the Capitoline there are many regrets for the missed opportunities in the first half. In the recovery, a nervous Romero is sent off and gets two yellow cards in a few seconds.
Lazio starts with the right attitude and Felipe Anderson is the most on the ball: from his feet almost all the chances of the first half are born, except one when Milinkovic-Savic serves Lazzari in the area but the winger wasted finishing on the side. The Brazilian first comes close to scoring with a great shot aimed at the crossroads, deflected on the crossbar by the opposing goalkeeper. Shortly after he gives Cancellieri an assist to the kiss, the former Verona tries with his left with the ball that ends a few meters from the post. Feyenoord builds the only goal ball of the first half around half an hour but Provedel saves on Peixao. On the left wing there seem to be the biggest problems for the Capitoline, so at the end of the first half Sarri replaces Lazzari and moves Hysaj to the right, with Marusic inserted on the left.
In the second half, Feyenoord raises the engine revs, also thanks to the De Kuip crowd and at 19 ‘finds the match goal: on a long pass Gimenez slips between Marusic and Patric. There is a contact between the three and Provedel, who loses the ball in a very clumsy way. The Feyenoord striker is the fastest to get the ball back between and get in the door for the 1-0. Enter Pedro and Romero but Lazio is unable to build a real opportunity for the 1-1. In the end, spirits heat up and Romero is expelled for two yellow cards in a few seconds.
