Europa League, Lazio folds Midtjylland at home
The Biancocelesti win 2-1 and take the lead in the round
Crucial victory for Lazio on the fifth day of the Europa League group stage. Sarri’s side overcame Midtjylland 2-1 at the Stadio Olimpico to temporarily take the lead in Group F with eight points.
Coldly hit by Isaksen, who scored in the 8th minute after a mistake by Marcos Antonio, Lazio reacted by finding the equalizer in the 36th minute through Milinkovic-Savic, who guessed a perfect shot on the turn that left the opponent’s goalkeeper with no chance.
In the second half, after a crossbar on each side (Dreyer and Zaccagni), the Capitoline side overtook with newcomer Pedro, served by Zaccagni. In the final two goals cancelled on each side: Pedro had his second goal cancelled for offside, shortly afterwards it was Juninho’s turn, again on an irregular position.
