[SERIE A] Milan - Lazio = 2 - 0

September 13, 2021

The first big match of the Lazio season was held at San Siro. The biancoceleste of Sarri go to the Devil's den to face Milan when we are on the third day of Serie A Tim. A lethal Milan performance for the Capital Club, who are helpless to touch them until they are dragged into the grip of a bad defeat. The first, for Sarri. 

Pioli asks for a suffocating pressing, and the movements of the Rossoneri act as a central screen: the lines are narrow to block the trajectories of passage between the lines, even at the cost of leaving space on the flanks. But there Lazio, today, does not break through. 

In the first half, the chances are summed up in an unrealistic header by Milinkovic-Savic. Milan, on the other hand, scores with Leao: the Rossoneri ace works together with Rebic and finds himself all alone in the area. He has time to stop, look at Reina, and beat him. AC Milan has the chance of 2-0, but Kessie misses on a penalty kick.

But the second goal arrives from the substitute, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Sarri has entered Zaccagni and Lazzari to give liveliness to the maneuver, the full-back goes up to give support to the offensive action but leaves a hole in defense that is filled by the action of Rebic. The Croatian serves Ibrahimovic who, easy easy, taps in one millimeter from Reina. 

Toma Basic also makes its debut, running and moving with an evident desire to amaze. The only opportunity is a shot from Immobile in the 82nd minute, Maignan saves and the defense pushes away.

It was not Lazio's evening. It was Milan's evening, which leaves no room and margin for Sarri's maneuvers. Maurizio chews the bitter taste of defeat: it is 2-0 at San Siro. In the end, even Mr. Sarri is sanctioned by Chiffi with a red card.
