Lazio ends Atalanta's streak

After 14 games without losses, the Dea fell at home to Simone Inzaghi's men, who overtook them in fifth place in the standings.


After 14 consecutive games without defeats, the great streak of Atalanta was broken, which fell to Lazio of Simone Inzaghi. The biancocelesti deservedly got their revenge after losing in the Italian Cup against Gasperini's team just four days ago, hitting very early.

The Romans took the lead after just two minutes, with a precious thread from Marusic from 25 meters, unstoppable for Gollini. Those of Bergamo failed to react and, before the break, the Laziali touched the 0-2 several times. The best chance was Milinkovic-Savic, who after a beautiful combination between Immobile and Luis Alberto headed well, but his strike ran into the rival goalkeeper and the post.

La Dea started the restart with Malinovskyi and much more strength, but his initial arreón was quickly extinguished with a perfect visitor counterattack. Immobile combed a long pass for Correa, who went only to Gollini and won the heads-up.

Gasperini's men could not find gaps and it took a great personal move by Muriel to get the 1-2, which Pasalic made (on his return to the green for the first time since November), pushing the ball between sticks after a rebound from Pepe Queen against the Colombian.

It was 79 ', but the illusion of coming back lasted very little for the locals, since in 83', after a deep pass from Milinkovic-Savic, Pereira gave the ball to Muriqi, who only in front of the empty goal did not it could fail. Lazio celebrated in a big way a prestigious and important triumph for the classification. With these three points, the laziali march fifth, just overtaking Dea.
