What evidently stands out is the fact that Lazio recorded seven more penalty area shots than Club Brugge. The Italian side was more forceful when in possession and sought to push play further into Club Brugge’s defensive third.
For Lazio’s attacking duo of Ciro Immobile and Joaquin Correa, the two combined to record four shots on target with three of them coming from the Argentine.
As mentioned, it was not a flawless performance from Lazio, but the team still moves on through to the Champions League Round of 16.
