Italy: Serie A
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
Such history is as old as the world and can happen in different countries and championships. Lazio that is taking now the 5th place at the tournament bracket of Serie A had a great chance to move closer to the current quartet of the leaders. During the last 16th round of the Italian season Inter, Juventus, Napoli and Roma had lost the points. The match Lazio-Torino was held on the 11th of December, Monday and finished the game schedule of the 16th round.
Fantastic fiasco of Biancocelesti
Of course, the possible victory of super motivated hosts of Stadio Olimpico is doubtless. And that is why the bettors were betting on home victory of Biancocelesti.
But the chief referee of this meeting had his own opinion about the winner. And that is why by the end of the first half Lazio was short-handed and after the break didn’t get two rightly earned penalty shots. As a result the team of Simone Inzaghi had lost with the score 1:3.
Claudio Lotito’s ultimatum
Just after the finishing of this “circus performance” in which the main heroes were not the football players of the teams but the referee Piero Giacomelli, the famous boss of Lazio had put an ultimatum. Claudio Lotito has suspected biased attitude towards his team and that is why he threatened the management of Serie A with a boycott by Lazio next calendar matches in case this situation will repeat …
The nearest opponent of Biancocelesti will be the mid level Atalanta. Now the team of Gian Piero Gasperini is taking the 8th line at the tournament bracket and is really claiming for the 6th Europa League place that is now taken by Sampdoria. This fact means that the nearest opponent of the club from capital is also very motivated and won’t probably present Biancocelesti three points.
Atalanta – 2.40, draw – 3.40, Lazio– 3.00;
