ROME – Simone Inzaghi entered the history of Lazio. Thanks to Brescia's comeback success on the field, it equaled the record of nine consecutive victories that previously belonged only to Sven Goran Eriksson's Lazio between December 1998 and February 1999 (the year before the 2000 championship). Thanks to today's victory, Lazio moved to three points from Inter and Juventus, teams that lead the Serie A standings together, confirming themselves as a championship.
Let's explain why Lazio can truly win the Scudetto. Let's start with the numbers. The ranking speaks for itself and Lazio is continuously growing, as demonstrated by the newly conquered Italian Super Cup and the streak of nine consecutive victories. But the dizzying numbers do not only concern the team but also the players.
Ciro Immobile is the league's top scorer with 19 goals in 17 games. He is traveling to more than one race network. Immobile is doing better than Higuain in his record season.
At this point in the championship, the Lazio striker has three more goals than those of the Argentine at the time of Napoli. But the record numbers do not only concern goals but also assists. Luis Alberto leads this special classification with eleven assists served to his teammates during this Serie A.
Lazio can dream of the championship not only for the numbers but also for the situation of its direct competitors to the title. Juventus and Inter are still busy in European cups while she is already out of the Europa League.
So while bianconeri and nerazzurri will have to take the field after grueling cup matches, the team coached by Simone Inzaghi will be able to prepare every championship game in total tranquility with a week available. A not insignificant advantage …
