ROME – 20 years ago, Juventus lost sensationally in Perugia delivering the league title to Lazio.
It was an unexpected epilogue, with the Juventus game that ended well beyond that of Lazio due to prohibitive weather conditions .
Lazio easily won against Reggina with goals from Inzaghi, Veron and Simeone .
After the end of the match, biancocelesti footballers and fans remained at the Olimpico to wait for the final whistle of Perugia-Juventus.
The Curi race had been suspended due to the storm that had started in Perugia.
The pitch had been made impractical by the pouring rain.
Collina however wanted to end the race.
Perugia-Juventus ended 75 minutes after Lazio-Reggina 3-0 .
The Umbrians won with a leg of Calori.
The Lazio fans and footballers, who remained at the Olimpico, started the Scudetto party, between general disbelief, an hour and a quarter after the end of their game.
Today Materazzi , who played with Perugia at the time, wanted to remember those moments to the delight of the Inter and Lazio fans.
But at the same time the former defender of the Italian National Football Team sent Juventus fans into a rage.
Inter fans hate Juventus and at the same time are twinned with Lazio (remember the famous oh nooo !?).
Here is the post published on Instagram by Materazzi:
"As it rained, so he cried … (cit. Achille Togliani)
There are those who have May 5 and those on May 14, those who were wet with rain that day and those with tears …
