Lazio finally bounced back after their recent slump with a commanding 2-0 win over Salernitana, showing signs of a typical Maurizio Sarri squad.
The Biancocelesti were in the driving seat for the entire 90 minute clash at the Stadio Arechi but it took an hour for them to finally find a breakthrough, thanks to talismanic striker Ciro Immobile. Nine minutes later the Italian forward found his brace from the penalty spot, confirming the victory for the Roman club.
It was an important response from Lazio, who are still firmly involved in the race for a top four finish this season. The team will be hoping to carry this momentum forward into the second leg of their Europa Conference League knockout playoffs with CFR Cluj.
The entire Lazio squad had a good outing against Salernitana, with the standout performances coming from Immobile, Matias Vecino and Ivan Provedel. Luis Alberto lost some marks for missing a penalty in the final stages of the match.
