While the Biancocelesti were able to keep a clean sheet for the first half, just three minutes into the second half, a penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo – after a handball by Bastos put the Bianconeri up 1-0. As if this was not bad enough, just three minutes after his first goal in the 51′, Ronaldo scored his second of the night in the 54′ off a Luiz Felipe error. However, Lazio never gave up, continuing to try and make something happen, and in the 83′, Ciro Immobile scored a penalty off of a Leonardo Bonucci error. This mistake stemmed from the half-way line when Luiz Felipe passed the ball out to Francesco Acerbi on the left flank.

The ball bounced between Matthijs de Ligt and Leonardo Bonucci who did not try and clear the ball – as both assumed that goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was coming off his line to grab the ball – until it was too late.

Immobile raced past them both and just as he got to the ball, Bonucci kicked him instead of the ball, resulting in a penalty.
