Lazio Player Ratings: Experienced Trio Chastised for Poor Display vs Juventus

Several Lazio players received low ratings following the club’s unconvincing display against Juventus on Tuesday night.

The Biancocelesti had the upper hand when the sides locked horns on Saturday night in a Serie A showdown. Adam Marusic nodded the ball home in the final minute to give Igor Tudor a winning debut at the expense of his former employers.

However, the outcome was strikingly different last night, with the Old Lady coming away with a two-goal cushion in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.

Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic both scored in the second half to give the black-and-white crowds at the Allianz Stadium something to cheer about.

As for the Biancocelesti, they will have a mountain to climb in the second leg following a disappointing showing in Turin.

Therefore, the major Italian news outlets have criticized the performances of some of Lazio’s most experienced stars, particularly Ciro Immobile, Luis Alberto and Alessio Romangnoli.

The trio mostly earned 5/10 grades, while Nicolo Casale received under-par notes after replacing Patric at halftime. The latter was the best performer among Tudor’s ranks, with one of the sources handing him a 6.5/10 grade.

So here are the player ratings from some of Italy’s biggest news outlets as published by La Lazio Siamo Noi:
