Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic once again showed why he is one of the top workhorse midfielders in Serie A during his side’s fixture against Benevento.
Milinkovic-Savic was not the star of the match considering that Ciro Immobile bagged two goals in Lazio’s 5-3 win. Instead, the Serbian midfielder simply had his way when Lazio maintained possession and also aimed to win the ball back.
In the match, Milinkovic-Savic recorded an assist, completed 52 passes, notched three ground duels, won one tackle and logged an interception.
Milinkovic-Savic has been a key player in Lazio’s five-match league winning streak thanks to the four goal contributions that he has logged over these select fixtures.
Overall, Lazio now looks ahead to its remaining fixtures in league play this season, which includes an upcoming clash against Napoli. Lazio will surely need the best out of Milinkovic-Savic in this upcoming matchup, which could end up being key in the final result.
