Roma created several chances but Lopez’s evident mistake gave Lazio an undeserved equalizer. The Lupi dominated the match but only collected one point.
The Giallorossi shot on goal 22 times at the Stadio Olimpico but an inexplicable mistake of Pau Lopez helped Lazio today. Edin Dzeko had broken the deadlock in the 26th minute with a header and the Giallorossi had the opportunity to double the lead just a minute after.
But football can be unpredictable at times. The Biancoazzurri kept their lines very tight trying to close the space in front of their keeper Starkosha. Inzaghi decided to defend and play on the counter but his side shot on goal just 6 times and collected 1 corner kick throughout the 90 minutes.
66% of ball possession for the Giallorossi in front of their fans who applauded them at the end of the match. 15 shots inside the box against 3, Fonseca‘s men would have deserved the three points today.
