Lazio Women’s season went from bad to worse yesterday as they suffered a harrowing 8-1 loss to AC Milan Women.
Coach Carolina Morace’s side are still searching for their first points of this Serie A Femminile campaign and will have to keep waiting, with the Rossoneri being the clear superior side yesterday.
Below are the two squads in yesterday’s game (via Lazio):
- Lazio Women (4-3-3): Stephanie Ohrstrom; Margot Gambarotta (90’+1′ Camilla Labate), Beatrix Fordos, Maria Thomsen, Nora Heroum; Antonietta Castiello (79′ Sarah Mattei), Ella Mastrantonio (58’ Noemi Visentin), Rachel Cuschieri; Francesca Pittaccio (46′ Virginia Di Giammarino), Adriana Martin, Signe Holt Andersen.
- AC Milan Women (3-4-3): Maria Korenciova; Laura Fusetti, Laura Agard, Laia Codina (46′ Gudny Arnadottir); Sara Andersen, Refiloe Jane, Greta Adami, Valentina Bergamaschi (58′ Federica Rizza); Lindsey Thomas (68′ Giorgia Miotto), Valentina Giacinti (59′ Miriam Longo), Veronica Boquete (76′ Serena Cortesi).
The first half was a painful one-sided affair, with coach Maurizio Ganz’s side attacking with unparalleled ease against a nervous and intimidated Lazio Women squad.
Thomas scored the opener after only five minutes, before Giacinti scored a quick hattrick before half-time, with the goals coming at the 13th, 29th and 31st minutes.
During the cooling break, Morace tried to spur on her squad, but her efforts seemed to have little effect as the first half drew to a close, with Lazio Women 4-0 behind.
The Biancocelesti players finally started to create some problems for the Rossoneri defence, but the Milanese club continued their dominance and netted a fifth goal in the 54th minute thanks to Thomas and a sixth goal in the 57th minute thanks to Giacinti, who scored a poker in the match.
In the 67th minute, another painful blow came when Boquete scored to make it 7-0.
Lazio Women still tried their best and managed to score a consolation goal in the 78th minute, thanks to Spanish veteran Martin.
In the dying minutes of the match, Cortesi netted the final goal, seeing the match end 8-1.
Morace and her squad will have to recover from this painful loss before re-grouping ahead of their next match against Fiorentina Femminile on 26th September.
