Turnover for Inzaghi
Inzaghi uses a massive turnover from the beginning, without however giving up the pin of the Acerbi defense, the man assisting Luis Alberto and the Immobile bomber. Lazio is surprised by the decisive start of Rennes which shows that it has no intention of playing the part of the sacrificial victim. The French move the ball well and also take advantage of the lack of clarity of the guests during construction.
Gnagnon signs the French advantage
The opportunities are absent, but Lazio is not able to loosen the constant pressure of Rennes that with the passing of the minutes acquires more and more conviction. The first ring arrives on the 25 ', when Lea Siliki forces Proto to deviate by diving on a shot to turn directed to the corner. It is the prelude to the advantage that takes shape at 30 'on the corner kick developments: Boey heads the ball and Gnagnon surprises Acerbi by turning in the area and dumping on the net with power.
Da Cunha near doubling
The Capitoline are struggling to react and in the final part of the stage they are still the hosts to take the stage, touching the doubling with a shot by Da Cunha who misses the goal from an excellent position, after yet another disengagement in Lazio. In the second half the Biancocelesti show greater resourcefulness and show themselves forward with a parolo shot with a header from Acerbi, who misses the goal by a few steps.
Gnagnon strikes again
They are isolated flashes and Rennes soon returns to manage the pace, also because Cluj's two goals against Celtic extinguish any ambition of Lazio's comeback. Inzaghi hastens to make Luis Alberto breathe and Immobile, instead Rennes is not satisfied with the advantage and continues to push to find the doubling at 87 ', again with Gnagnon. This time the goleador defender puts a comfortable tap-in in the net after the Proto parade on Tait. Before tonight, only in the 1-0 knockout against Inter had Lazio not been able to go online in the twenty-one races held so far: an emblematic epilogue of a Europa League to forget quickly.
