There can be much to examine when analyzing Lazio’s performance against AC Milan. The Biancocelesti came away with a 3-2 defeat in a fixture where the side scored two goals from 13 total shots. But in the end, defensive miscues once again hurt Lazio as the side allowed at least three goals in a Serie A fixture for the fifth time this season.
Former Lazio forward Bruno Giordano watched the fixture and is pinpointing manager Simone Inzaghi’s late substitutions as to one reason for why the club failed to pick up all three points. Inzaghi subbed off Ciro Immobile and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the late stages of the second half. Giordano did not understand this decision by the Italian manager and spoke further about the decision in comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.
I didn’t like the changes. For example, he risks Correa and then afterwards, he goes out due to injury. Then above all, the last two substitutions gave Milan oxygen. By letting important players out they gave Milan confidence back.
Inzaghi made another substitution late by bringing in defender Wesley Hoedt for Patric. But all three decisions did not end up helping the team hold off Milan.
