email print  
Lazio's youth team played the Danish side Nordsjaelland in the 1/8-finals of the Viareggio tournament. Despite a late injury to defender Sbraga just before kick off coach Alberto Bollini started with a strong lineup:

Lazio (4-3-3): Berardi, Ilari, Marin, Vilkaitis, Serpieri; Zampa, Cilfone, De Francesco, Rozzi, Barreto, Emmanuel

Lazio had the first chances and after only 9 minutes the Nigerian striker Emmanuel Sani gave Lazio the lead. After that Nordsjaelland took the initiative and had several chances, but at half time the score was 1-0 to Lazio.

After 55 minutes Zampa doubled with a header from a corner. After that it looked liked the Danish side had given up and struggled to put pressure on Lazio's defence.

In the 90th minute Rozzi secured the victory and made it 3-0.

Bollini's boys are now in the quarter finals. They will face Fiorentina who are one of the favourites to win the tournament. They won their group with 7 points, and today they beat Empoli 3-0 on penalties after the match ended 0-0.

The match is to be played at Thursday 16th February, the same day the first team will play Atletico Madrid. Coach Bollini will be hoping that he will still have Zampa & Rozzi at his disposal for this one.
