After the 1-0 in the semi-final round over Leicester, which had also been a game of tears, the almost unchanged Roma team from Coach José Mourinho presented itself unusually tired, weary, unimaginative and generally weak in the duels.
The domestic fioretina, which in this direct duel in the struggle for the Europa League ranks directly from the start, accelerated, accelerated and immediately came to a penalty thanks to Gonzalez. The Argentinian, who came from VfB Stuttgart before the season, had tricked himself into the sixteen in the second minute before Karsdorp came with his leg too late – and referee Marco Guida after VAR intervention and her own image study. Gonzalez started and converted safely into the lower left corner to the 1-0 lead.
But that’s not all: because the Roman and 20-year-old Zalewski against the starting Bonaventura did pretty much everything wrong (too far away, wrong posture, no intervention at all), it was already 0: 2 from the point of view of the conference League final participants. The 32-year-old Bonaventura was therefore able to shoot into the left corner freely and easily from a few meters.
It was only with this goal “Mous Team” woke up a bit, became more passionate about the direct duels and subsequently also came to a few dangerous deals (Pellegrini free kick in the 20th, Abraham header in the 54th). Rather, this evening simply shouldn’t succeed, also because the domestic viola supported by its fans in the Artemio Franchi was defensively and repeatedly started relief attacks. Only the accuracy of these counterattacks was missing in order to ultimately form an even clearer result.
In the final minutes, Mourinho still took the opportunity to help his comeback to help the Italian EM hero Spinazzola, which was long after his Achilles tendon tear. The outdoor car player hadn’t kicked since July.
No question, the 2-0 for the Tuscans was absolutely well deserved, which came even more excitement in the fight for international business behind the Italian Top 4 (Milan, Inter, Napoli, Juve). From then on it says: Lazio is in 5th place with 62 points and thus has pole position two rounds before the end of the season, followed by the Roma and the Fiorentina and also Atalanta with 59 points each.
