Dearest SS Lazio Supporters & Fans,
Welcome back to Cuore di Lazio’s english aggregator, where to find all the latest news about the Biancocelesti team!
First things first: Capital city team SS Lazio was scheduled to face newly-promoted club Delfino Pescara at their home field of Stadio Olimpico in Rome this Saturday, Sep. 17 as week 4 competitions of the 2016-2017 Serie A season carries on.
As reported by www.espnfc.us, “One goal quickly becomes three as Lazio see off Pescara. Three second-half goals in the space of nine minutes saw Lazio claim a 3-0 win over Serie A newboys Pescara at the Stadio Olimpico.
Pescara should have taken the lead in the first half when Bastos fouled Gianluca Caprari inside the box but Ledian Memushaj fired his penalty well wide of Federico Marchetti’s goal.
The visitors were punished as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic gave Simone Inzaghi’s side the lead after 67 minutes with a powerful header before Stefan Daniel Radu doubled their advantage five minutes later.
Balde Diao Keita set up summer-signing Ciro Immobile to score his first goal for the club and the hosts’ third as Lazio climbed up to fourth in the table.”
It was a very open game, but the Delfini fell away in the second half to goals from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Stefan Radu and Ciro Immobile. Simone Inzaghi explained his surprising tactical changes as Lazio ran out 3-0 winners against Pescara: “We prepared for this game in the best way, so the lads deserve credit. We should’ve gone in front a lot earlier, but between the woodwork and (Albano) Bizzarri, the ball didn’t want to go in,” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.
“Felipe Anderson did a wonderful job. He showed how well he can fulfil this role and provided the assist for one of the goals too.
“We were without our captain (Lucas Biglia), but I am happy that Danilo Cataldi and Milinkovic-Savic proved in training that I could count on them.
“We saw that in previous games Pescara tended to play very well against teams using 4-3-3. We took a risk with 3-5-2, as we had Senad Lulic and Anderson on the wings in very attacking roles, but the experience of Marco Parolo helped with the movements and timing, allowing Anderson to rest a little.
“I saw Filip Djordjevic do really well during training this week and it would’ve been unfair to leave him or Immobile out, so we worked this system with both of them and got a deserved victory.”
And Ciro Immobile says (www.football-italia.net) Lazio are a well-motivated team after their 3-0 triumph over Pescara.
The forward found the net along with teammates Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Stefan Radu to give the Biancocelesti their second win of the season.
“We created a lot, especially in the first half,” Immobile reflected following victory at Stadio Olimpico. In the second half we followed it up.
“Otherwise, we suffered a little from their set pieces, we knew of their dangers.
“The team will always put itself at the boss’ disposal, because we want to develop. There are a lot of motivated people who want to do well.
“We work to win all the time.”
So there are at least some good news for Lazio fans: furthermore, Coach Simone Inzaghi seems to have made peace with striker Keita Balde Diao, last heard of being publicly called out by his own club.
The former striker can’t want to see what Keita can do for him come gametime, having provided an assist in last weekend’s draw with Chievo. And, as stated by www.calciomercato.com, Biglia is ready to renew: “During the last transfer window, there have been many rumors regarding Lazio midfielder Lucas Biglia, but finally the Argentine remained in Rome.
As reported by Tuttosport, the biancocelesti’s Director of Sports Igli Tare is in talks with Enzo Montepaone –agent of the former Anderlecht man- to renew the contract of the 30-year-old”
So many reasons to be happy! Great things may be achieved when the biancocelesti set high expectations for them – mostly after the improved performance of this week.
