Lazio extended its active Serie A winning streak to four matches following the recent win over Verona. A late goal by midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic ended up being the deciding score of the match as Lazio took home all three points in the narrow 1-0 win. It was not a dominant showing from Lazio, but a win is a win.
Former Italian manager Nedo Sonetti sees (via Cittacleste) that this was a much-needed win for Lazio in its current pursuit of a possible top-four finish in the Serie A table.
I think the Biancocelesti played an important game, also because playing against the Gialloblù is never easy. The victory will be important for the continuation of the championship.
Lazio will now look ahead to the upcoming league fixture against Benevento. The Biancocelesti stands at sixth place in the league standings with plenty of football still to be played over the ongoing season.
