Lazio wastes, is mocked, and cries: Europe goodbye


ROME – The game has a certain value in key qualifications, but Simone Inzaghi does not give up the turnover, leaving Luis Alberto on the bench and even Correa in the stands. There is Caicedo alongside Immobile, but the Ecuadorian has certainly not offered his best performance.

Lazio starts well and imparts its technical superiority to the guests who are at the mercy of the Capitoline team, the goal of the advantage arrives quickly and bears the signature – look a bit – of usual Ciro Immobile: still Lazzari to brush on the right, Caicedo dirty the ball and the number 17 from the six meters beats Forster without too many problems. Lazio seems in total control if it weren't for a few moments of crazy amnesia. And it is from one of these carelessness that Celtic's draw comes to a signing Forrest: the player takes advantage of the ball lost by Milinkovic in a dribble and Acerbi's not excellent coverage to puncture Strakosha and bring the result to 1-1.

As often happened this season, Lazio suffered the blow and started the second portion of the game with less brilliance and lucidity. Salt in the chair Edouard who has at least three chances that the goal of the sensational 1-2. Lazio has a pride reaction in the final part of the match: they try Milinkovic, Immobile and Luis Alberto (who took over from Leiva), but Forster is – as in the first leg – amazing.

Simone Inzaghi's team is paying duty, returning home in a valley of tears. Celtic take advantage of Lazio's many missed chances and fly to the Europa League round of 32 thanks to Ntcham's unexpected goal, also on a free gift: Berisha loses the ball in midfield and sets off the visitors' goal. Three points in the standings and qualification, in fact, compromised. Goodbye Europe.
