In the 2020-21 campaign, Lazio has scored 22 goals in Serie A, and freelance writer Ninad Barbadikar put together a chart illustrating the type of goals that clubs in the Italian league have scored.
When taking a look at Lazio’s preferred method of putting the ball in the back of the net, the chart shows that the Biancocelesti scores most of their goals from open play and counter-attack. To be specific, through 14 Serie A fixtures, 16 of Lazio’s goals have come from a mix of open play and counter-attack.
On the other hand, only six of their 22 goals have come from the spot and off of set-pieces. Considering that over the past decade, Lazio has led all Serie A clubs in penalty kicks received, drawing only three penalties in 14 matches thus far seems unordinary. With the second half of the season about to start, it will be interesting to see if Lazio starts to draw more penalties to increase their tally in this regard.
With regards to total shots thus far in Serie A, Lazio has 166 in total. 124 from open play, 33 from set-pieces, six from the counter-attack and three from the spot.
