Lazio Defender Acerbi Disappoints in Italy’s Goalless Draw vs Northern Ireland

Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi did not have the best game in Italy’s 0-0 draw with Northern Ireland yesterday.

As collected by Italian media outlet LazioNews24 earlier today, the 33-year-old Italian defender did not receive particularly flattering ratings by the Italian press for his performance in the Azzurri’s insufficient goalless draw yesterday, which left them sitting second in their 2022 World Cup qualifying group.

Acerbi was given 5.0 ratings by La Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport for his performance, with Tuttosport’s 5.5 rating being a little more flattering.

The 33-year-old Italian defender has been a more consistent performer for Lazio this season, working well in coach Maurizio Sarri’s four-man defence.

Acerbi, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2025, has made 14 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1246 minutes.

In that time, he has provided two assists but has also seen one red card after an outburst in the loss to Bologna.
