For Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi, he notes the key early goal that the side gave up as one factor in its demise in the match. In the end, Lazio watched as Atalanta netted a trio of goals.

Acerbi provided his thoughts on the match, with comments being relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

We didn’t start very well, immediately conceding the goal, but we deserved the 2-1 playing well and being aggressive.

We can’t take the 2-2 goal after 3 minutes.We have to be aggressive in all 90 minutes.

Lazio had provided for strong defensive performances in recent fixtures, but this result is certainly a setback for the side.
