The game against Torino was disappointing on many levels for Lazio fans. Some dubious calls by the match official Iratti certainly contributed to a certain deja-vu. Not all of it was negative. After a very difficult season thus far Lazio’s one-time €100 million man, Sergej Milinkovic–Savic put in a performance much more reminiscent of the player that produced a torrent of summer market hype. The Lazio midfielder leveled the score for Lazio with an absolute rocket in the 62nd minute and created three goal-scoring chances.
The game also marked an important milestone for Milinkovic-Savic as it marked his 144th match in sky blue and put him in the top 70 for all-time appearances for the Roman club. Lazio will certainly be hoping this form will carry forward and that “il sergente” will be able to return to the form he showed last year. If Lazio hopes to make a achieve an elusive Champions’ League spot, they’ll need the exquisitely talented Serb to find his €100 million form.
