The Scudetto dream has definitely vanished for Lazio. The Biancocelesti are unable to get out of the crisis of results in which they swooped after the resumption of the championship. After the 0-3 against Milan, and the 1-2 against Lecce, here is the internal defeat against Sassuolo.
Today Lazio lost at home to a Sassuolo who also allowed themselves the luxury of leaving several owners out in the first half of the game. Berardi remained on the bench throughout the game, while Ciccio Caputo, who entered the second half, decided the match.
After a first half of substantial balance, closed on one to zero for Lazio with Luis Alberto's net propitiated by a deflection of an opponent, Sassuolo came out at a distance thanks to the changes of De Zerbi and to a brighter physical condition.
In fact, the neroverdi equalized the accounts with the baby Raspadori, the first goal in Serie A, and then they won the match with one leg of the usual Caputo.
Pending Juve-Atalanta, Lazio take the third consecutive knockout by slipping to less than seven from the bianconeri.
