Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi gave the Biancocelesti the lead against Atalanta after 34 minutes of their Coppa Italia match today.

The 32-year-old Italian defender, who is contracted to the Roman club until 2023, scored his first goal of the campaign to put Simone Inzaghi’s side ahead.

Their lead would not last long, however, as Ruslan Malinovskiy levelled out the game after only three minutes.
