Lazio enjoyed a mesmerising away victory against Verona at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi on Sunday. Both Verona and Lazio arrived in good form, having secured victories in their previous matches. Verona had been hopeful of continuing their run, following a 2-0 victory against Cagliari. Lazio were coming from consecutive wins against Spezia Calcio and Udinese. Following today’s result, Verona and Lazio are 8th, (41 points) and 6th, (55 points), spots respectively, after 30 matches.

After a goalless first half, Lazio continued to pile on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, with a goal from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic just before the final whistle, which sealed the victory for the visitors.

For Verona, Ivan Ilic, Daniel Bessa, Federico Ceccherini, Eddie Salcedo and Nikola Kalinic, came on for Miguel Veloso, Mattia Zaccagni, Federico Dimarco, Antonin Barak and Kevin Lasagna. Lazio brought on Vedat Muriqi, Andreas Pereira, Senad Lulic, Gonzalo Escalante and Marco Parolo, to replace Felipe Caicedo, Luis Alberto, Mohamed Fares, Jean Akpa and Lucas Leiva.

The referee booked Felipe Caicedo and Luis Alberto for Lazio.

Verona will next travel to Sampdoria, while Lazio will face Benevento at home.
