[Europa League] Lazio - Sturm Graz = 2 - 2

2022/2023 Europa League Group F fourth match between Lazio and Graz SK ended 2:2. The two teams exchanged goals at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Despite the away game, Sturm Graz managed to take control early in the first half. The Austrian representative can launch attacks and speculative kicks to open up opportunities.

A minute before half-time, Lazio was awarded a penalty after Mattia Zaccagni was violated by David Affengruber in the penalty area. Immobile (45+2'), who served as the enforcer, did an excellent job, and Lazio won 1-0.

But before the end of the first half, Manuel Lazzari received a second yellow card and was sent off by the referee. Despite the win, Lazio will play with 10 men in the second half.

In the second half, Sturm Graz tried to regain control of the game. However, the representatives of the Italian league played more aggressively. This situation makes the opponent more alert when making an attack. However, Sturm Graz was able to score in the end thanks to a shoot from William Boving (56'). Boving, who had just come on as a substitute for Emanuel Emegha in the second half, outwitted Ivan Provedel. The score becomes a draw of 1-1

In the 71st minute, Pedro put Lazio back ahead with his shot. But in the 83rd minute, Sturm Graz was able to equalize through William Boving's kick again. After that, the two teams attacked each other and failed to score until the end of the game. Lazio and Sturm Graz drew 2-2.
