Juventus – Lazio 3-0 in last match of 2022 calendar year in Serie A

And that’s six. Juve closes out 2022 in the best way possible by racking up its sixth consecutive league victory – and always without conceding goals – beating at the Allianz Stadium a Lazio that appeared less brilliant than on other occasions. Instead, it is really convincing the performance of the Bianconeri team, which first waited patiently to figure out what kind of game to play, showing the right respect for an opponent that was ahead of it in the standings, and then struck surgically.

That’s exactly what Adrien Rabiot, who was good at taking advantage of a mistake by Milinkovic-Savic in the build-up, and Moise Kean, who packed the Bianconeri’s goal of the lead in the 43rd minute of the first half. In the second half, Lazio could not even organize a reaction, which was immediately hit again by the Vercelli native, who was quick to put back into the net a faulty clearance by Provedel on Kostic’s shot. The Biancocelesti do a lot of ball possession, but without stinging too much from Szczesny’s sides. And so, after coming close to a hat trick with a quarter of an hour left, Arek Milik put the final seal on the match in the 89th minute.

The Bianconeri confeminate the progress of recent weeks, staying in the wake of Milan, the first pursuer of the leading Napoli. For Lazio, it was a bitter evening within a championship that for now, however, sees the Biancocelesti still in the midst of the race for a Champions League spot but hooked in fourth place by Inter.
