Lazio Often Dropping Points In The Final Minutes Of Matches

March 03, 2022

Lazio has a serious problem that must be immediately resolved, namely often dropping points in the final minutes of matches.  The last time in Serie A was at home to Napoli, where the visitors managed to steal perfect points at the Olimpico last weekend.

According to reports by the Italian newspaper La Repubblica, Lazio has dropped five points in the last minute so far while they can only pick up two points, which is considered a stark change from conditions under the previous coach, Simone Inzaghi.

The last time the Biancoceleste dropped points was against Napoli, previously they also dropped two points against Udinese with a goal in the 99th minute and also a point against Atalanta in Bergamo.

However, there is still a positive side as Maurizio Sarri's team also scored two decisive goals in extra-time in Serie A this season.  The first was in a 1-1 draw by Torino in September when Ciro Immobile scored a penalty and the second was against Empoli at home when Sergej Milinkovic-Savic scored in the 93rd minute.

Former Aquile striker, Felipe Caicedo is famous for often scoring goals in the closing minutes of matches and his departure is considered a loss because he cannot make him a wildcard in the final minutes of matches when his team needs points.

The defeat to Il Partenopei made the Italian capital team stuck in seventh place in the Serie A standings with a collection of 43 points and seven points adrift of the top four.  After being eliminated from the Europa League competition, Maurizio Sarri is now only focused on finishing in the top four.
