Match Report
Lautaro Martinez kept up his fine start to the season to open the scoring in the 30th minute of Sunday’s clash, lashing in a shot which Thomas Strakosha failed to keep out.

But with Romelu Lukaku wasting a chance to double Inter’s lead, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s brilliant header restored parity.

Lazio finally meets David Silva’s demand

Advertisements

Lazio have asked David Silva to give them an answer today or they will withdraw their three-year contract offer for the Manchester City midfielder.

The Spaniard became a free agent after City’s shock exit from the Champions League after their 3-1 defeat to Ligue 1 side Lyon.

Reports suggested that Silva was ignoring phone calls from the Serie A club and was weighing up other options instead.

Italian paper La Gazzetta dello Sport have now added that Lazio have set a deadline for Silva to respond or they will withdraw the paper work and their proposal.

The Italian side offered the creative midfielder a three-year contract, which would see him earn around £3.6million-per-year, including bonuses such as a personal driver and a private jet to see his family in Spain.

Napoli, Juventus and Valencia have also showed interest in the 34-year-old, but now Silva is tempted by a big money move to Qatar.

Former Valencia coach Quique Sanchez Flores has insisted that Lazio would be the best possible destination for the Spaniard.

‘He can give his best in the trequartista role, linking midfield and attack,’ Sanchez Flores told Tuttomercatoweb.

‘I think he’d do well alongside Luis Alberto, with both supporting Ciro Immobile, as with David behind him, I think Immobile could score even more than he did this season.’

David Silva joins Lazio

Advertisements

David Silva could be on his way to Serie A once his Manchester City days have come to an end.

The Spaniard will leave the Etihad Stadium at the end of the 2019/20 season, which will be concluded once City’s Champions League campaign is over.

NobleSports are reporting that Lazio are in talks to sign Silva after qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

The Biancocelesti spent most of the Serie A season as Juventus’ greatest title challengers, only to finish the season in fourth.

Striker Ciro Immobile ended the season as top scorer in Italy with 36 goals.

Silva could join fellow Spaniard Luis Alberto in Rome, who ended the season with 15 assists – the second most in Serie A.

Torino 1-2 Lazio, Captain Immobile helps close juve’s gap

Advertisements

Ciro Immobile gave away an early Torino penalty, but made up for it with the equaliser before Marco Parolo’s deflected strike completed another Lazio comeback.

Simone Inzaghi had to watch from the stands due to a touchline ban, as the Aquile fought to stay in the Scudetto race after Atalanta ended their 21-round unbeaten run with Massimiliano Farris on the bench. Senad Lulic, Luiz Felipe, Lucas Leiva and Bobby Adekanye were still out of action, while Marco Parolo shook off a knock. Torino were struggling just above the relegation zone and Simone Zaza wasn’t fit to start, so Simone Verdi stepped in.

It took just five minutes to break the deadlock, as Ciro Immobile used his arm to charge down Nicolas Nkoulou’s header on a free kick, allowing Andrea Belotti to convert. To make matters worse, the yellow card means Immobile will be suspended for the next match against Milan.

Immobile should’ve made up for his error by equalising on 22 minutes, but after springing the offside trap, he just clipped the crossbar one-on-one with Salvatore Sirigu.

Advertisements

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic also blasted over from a promising position and Felipe Caicedo was booked, so he too will be suspended for the Milan match.

Immobile again fired off target after a quick one-two to burst into the box, while Sirigu took the sting out of a Parolo header at the end of a long Lazio attacking move, raining crosses into the box.

Caicedo sprung the offside trap on a ball over the top, but his first touch let him down. When Francesco Acerbi did get the ball in the net on the stroke of half-time, he was in an offside position.

Immobile did get the equaliser at the dawn of the second half, this time running on to a Luis Alberto through ball and toe-poking it into the far bottom corner, wrong-footing Sirigu.

With 29 goals in 29 Serie A rounds, Immobile is the most prolific striker since Antonio Valentin Angelillo had 31 by this stage in 1959.

Torino were even more pinned back than before, Milinkovic-Savic and Immobile attempts off target, Joaquin Correa’s charged down, then Sirigu used his legs to parry from Milinkovic-Savic.

Eventually, Parolo’s snapshot from the edge of the box took a decisive deflection off Bremer to wrong-foot the goalkeeper at the near post and turn the game around completely.

Correa’s low cross-shot flashed all the way across the face of goal, Sirigu getting just enough on it to turn that away, while Koffi Djidji flung himself in the path of another Correa attempt.

Torino finally put some pressure on in the last five minutes, but it was too little, too late, and Lazio again picked up all three points from a trailing situation.

Lazio look to reward Immobile with captaincy and a new deal until 2025

Advertisements

Lazio are allegedly looking to reward Ciro Immobile with the captaincy and a new deal, tying him to the Olimpico until 2025.

Advertisements

The leading goalscorer has suggested to end his career with the Aquile, who seem ready to grant the Italy international’s wish and give him further responsibility on the pitch.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims the idea is to renew the current contract and extend the expiration date until June 2025, when Immobile will have turned 35 years old.

Senad Lulic, who has played 20 games in Serie A this term, turned 34 in January and the Bosnia international will pass on the armband to Immobile when his contract expires in June.

Advertisements

Immobile has declared his wish to remain with the Biancocelesti and will be a natural choice for the captaincy, as he has been leading the line with his valuable contributions in front of goal in recent years.

Only this term, the 30-year-old has scored 27 goals in Serie A and has contributed seven assists in his 26 matches, playing 93 per cent of the minutes available in the League so far.

Barca discard insufficient Luiz Felipe; Coutinho Spurs move is complicated


Sources reports that Barca was following to Luiz Felipe Ramos (23) and the analysis of the central Lazio has concluded. He is a good player but insufficient for the level that the technicians are looking for in that position.

The Italian team, which was trying to improve and extend their contract with a high termination clause, now has the most paved road.


Philippe Coutinho to Tottenham is complicated.

Bayern still haven’t said that they give up the purchase option for Coutinho but, in addition to the fact that Barça take it for sure, he also does not want to continue in Munich.

His dream is to go to London. Tottenham was an option but President Daniel Levy has sworn to his agent Kia Joorabchian, for taking Willian to Chelsea when Willian was close to sign for Tottenham. This may end the same.

Barcelona will have to pay €40m to sign Lazio defender Luiz Felipe


Despite the coronavirus pandemic work goes on at Barcelona as they continue to look at what signings they can make next season.

Lazio defender Luiz Felipe is one player they have been tracking for months and they now know how much they would have to pay to sign him.


The Italian club paid just €1 million for the 23-year-old three years ago but now they want to multiply that by 40, according to La Gazzetta Dello Sport, who cite €40m as the asking price.

Lazio hope to tie the Brazilian down to a new deal, though, and increase his release clause to generate more money if they do have to sell him.


Barça are looking to sign a centre-back. Piqué, Lenglet and Umtiti are the three they have currently but Pique is 33 now and needs a long-term replacement and Umtiti’s had fitness issues.

Luiz Felipe has had a fine campaign as Lazio have challenged Juventus to the Serie A title. When football was suspended, they were just a point behind the leaders with 12 games to go.

1-0: Lazio trashed Napoli


Lazio confirmed their title credentials on Saturday evening with a dogged 1-0 victory over Napoli, but the Eagles were gift-wrapped the three points through a howler from goalkeeper David Ospina.

The two sides played out a tense first half, in which the hosts had the better of play, with chances falling to the feet of both Felipe Caicedo and Ciro Immobile, though both Lazio forwards fluffed their lines.

Napoli looked more organised under new coach Gennaro Gattuso but they lacked imagination and creativity in front of goal, while occasionally gifting possession to their opponents in dangerous areas.


The second half was as equally hard-fought as the first, and despite struggling to carve out many chances, Napoli almost pinched a dramatic lead through Piotr Zielinski. The Polish midfielder danced through a couple of tackles and aimed a bending effort towards goal, but his curler hit the post and rebounded to the feet of a Lazio defender.

The away side grew into the game and Gattuso’s men looked the more likely to break the deadlock as the minutes ticked by. And in a game that could only be decided by a moment of brilliance or comedy, the latter struck in the hosts’ favour.

Napoli shot-stopper Ospina dallied in possession in his own penalty area, and rather than booting the ball into the stands, the Colombian tried to play his way out of trouble.

Lazio striker Immobile was not fooled by Ospina’s footwork, however, and having dispossessed the second-choice goalkeeper, the striker lashed the ball into an empty net to send the home fans into pandemonium.


FBL-ITA-SERIEA-LAZIO-NAPOLI
It was a moment to forget for Ospina, but unfortunately for Gattuso and his shot-stopper, it was the decisive action in a tense match.

Victory for Lazio sees them close the gap on Juventus and Inter to three points, with their title rivals set to face tough challenges themselves in the shape of Roma and Atalanta respectively.

2-1: Felipe Caicedo Late Winner Puts Sassuolo Away..

Felipe Caicedo snatched a late winner to keep Lazio third in Serie A with a 2-1 victory over Sassuolo on Sunday just ahead of city rivals Roma, who beat Brescia 3-0 with England defender Chris Smalling involved in all of his side’s goals.

Champions Juventus maintained their grip on the top of Serie A with a 3-1 win at Atalanta on Saturday, to stay one-point ahead of Inter Milan who eased past Torino 3-0.

The two Roman outfits are now third and fourth respectively before Cagliari, a point behind in fifth, play lowly Lecce later on Sunday.

Serie A top scorer Ciro Immobile struck to put Lazio ahead after 34 minutes in Sassuolo with his 15th league goal this season.

But struggling Sassuolo pulled back a goal back through Francesco Caputo just before the break.

Ecuadorian Caicedo came off the bench to seal a fifth consecutive league win in injury time to keep Lazio seven points behind Inter Milan in third place.

Roma is now two points behind their local rivals after defender Smalling scored and set up the other two goals in a victory over bottom club Brescia.

Smalling, on-loan for the season from Manchester United, headed in the first from a corner after 48 minutes in the Stadio Olimpico.

The 30-year-old then provided the cross that allowed fellow defender Gianluca Mancini to volley in eight minutes later, with Edin Dzeko completing the rout on 66 minutes after Smalling’s headed assist.

Brescia, now coached by 2006 World Cup winner Fabio Grosso, remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

Forward Mario Balotelli was dropped for Sunday’s game because of his lack of commitment in training.

The Italy international tried to play down Thursday’s training ground bust-up with Grosso.

“Recovery! Coming back soon, for the moment let them talk,” the former Marseille attacker said in a post on Instagram showing him undergoing physiotherapy.

Elsewhere, Samuel Di Carmine scored the only goal as Verona piled the pressure on Fiorentina, despite Franck Ribery returning after his three-match suspension.

The Tuscany side is in tenth place with just one point from their last three games.
