Lazio came away with a 3-2 loss to AC Milan on matchday 14 in a fixture where the Biancocelesti fought throughout in an attempt to pick up the much-needed win. But after coming back from a 2-0 deficit, Lazio was unable to score the third goal to seal the win and instead watched as Theo Hernandez scored the game-winner for his side.
Former Italian midfielder Massimo Donati watched the fixture and had a few observations from it. He credited Lazio for one aspect that it did well in but also questioned a decision made by manager Simone Inzaghi in the fixture. Donati provided his brief thought on the result in comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet Cittaceleste.
Lazio did better in terms of possession and played very well from the 20th of the first half onwards. However, great dangers did not bring them to the parts of Donnarumma.
Surely Lazio lost a little something by removing both Immobile and Milinkovic-Savic.
The season is still somewhat early for Lazio, but Donati sees that the side must quickly improve on the defensive side of the ball if it aspires to turn its campaign around.
The championship is still long. They certainly need to improve in the defensive phase because 23 goals after 14 games are a bit too many. I also think they need to recover some important players both in defense and in midfield to have more balance. But there is still time.
Lazio now currently remains at eighth-place in the league standings.
