Lazio-Milan 4-0, biancoceleste poker and rossoneri ko

Sarri’s team dominates, the Devil at -12 from Naples

Lazio overwhelms Milan 4-0 in the postponement of the 19th day of Serie A. The biancocelesti rise to 37 points, hooking up with Inter and Roma, moving to -1 from the Rossoneri. Napoli, leaders with 50 points, can sew the Scudetto months in advance given the advantage of 12 points over Milan, who say goodbye to tricolor ambitions at the Olimpico.

THE MATCH – Pioli, coach of the Italian champions, relies on Giroud as a central striker with Dest in place of the unavailable Theo Hernandez in the left lane. Messias, Brahim Diaz and Leao confirmed on the trocar. Sarri on the other hand sends the trident into the field with Pedro, Felipe Anderson and Zaccagni confirming Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto in the middle of the field.

In the 4th minute Lazio immediately took the lead: a low cross from Zaccagni, Luis Alberto let the ball slip by with a veil for the insertion of Milinković-Savić, who beat Tatarusanu from within: 1-0. The Rossoneri struggled in setting up due to the high pressure brought by the hosts who controlled the match and sank in the 30th minute with Zaccagni’s volley deflected in a corner by Kjær’s back, who came on in place of the injured Tomori.

In the 35th minute Lazio close to doubling the lead: Pedro slips away quickly and serves a ball inside for Felipe Anderson which is slightly too long. The goal comes shortly after. In the 38th minute Marusic, triggered by Pedro, drinks Dest and ends from close range: post, Zaccagni who burns everyone on time and puts the 2-0 ball inside into an empty net. Milan in confusion that fails to worry Provedel and risks again in the 46th minute with Zaccagni who flat-footedly looks for the far post, but Kjær sacrifices himself and saves Tatarusanu.

Pioli’s team enters with a different attitude at the beginning of the second half. In the 47th minute on Giroud’s intelligent side, Brahim Diaz loads the shot but Cataldi hits the target. In the 49th minute Bennacer’s free-kick was deflected, scaring Provedel. Lazio withdraws and Milan pushes. In the 62nd minute Hysaj makes a great save going to hinder Leao a few meters from goal. However, the Rossoneri discovered themselves and Lazio took advantage of it.

In the 67th minute the trio arrives with a penalty, for a foul by Kalulu on Pedro: penalty converted by Luis Alberto. Milan feels the pinch and in the 75th minute suffers the four-of-a-kind: Luis Alberto’s perfect suggestion for Felipe Anderson who from the center of the area places the ball into the net with great ease for the 4-0. In the 89th minute on a two-man free-kick with a touch from Tonali, Rebic lets go of a shot that is well neutralized by the Lazio goalkeeper. In the final Calabria comes out on the shoulder after a clash with Basic and for Pioli the ko is even more painful.
