Match Preview

The game started in a pretty dynamic way for Lazio which meant that Pioli’s men will be searching for an early goal which would make their game much easier. It’s turning out to be a style of some sort for the Biancocelesti to start their game in an aggressive and attacking way searching for a goal in the first 10-15 minutes.

This way of starting the home games once again turned out to be good for Lazio and in the 15th minute Biglia managed to open the scoring with a nicely placed shot from a free kick just in front of the penalty area. There was something which was even more interesting that happened just before the goal. Lazio made a second wall behind Torino’s one and a moment before Biglia’s shot the four players from that wall run away from the offside trap and maybe that managed to surprise Gillet who didn’t move after the shot itself. In the next 10-15 minutes Lazio were the team who tried to take advantage of Torino’s knock-out position and Candreva hit the side bar a minute after the first goal. More attacks kept on coming towards Torino’s goal but the score stayed only 1-0. After those dynamic first 15-20 minutes Lazio had to lower the tempo and rest for a few minutes which gave Torino a chance to try and find an equalizing goal. Farnerud was their most active player in attack and made a couple of shots but none of them gave his team the goal they wanted. Quagliarella also tried his luck but Marchetti did well. Lazio tried to finish off the half with a few good attacks in attempt to score a second goal but they couldn’t find the right way towards Gillet’s goal.

A lot of people would have expected to see a change from the guest team before the start of the second half but that didn’t happen, Pioli made a change and Klose came in for Anderson. The second half started in a similar way but this time Torino were the team that was more active and was searching for a goal. That happened and it took them only 7 minutes to equalize the score after Ciani didn’t manage to clear a ball in the best possible way and Farnerud made the best out of it and scored for the away team. After that goal Lazio started playing in a similar way like they did in the first minutes of the game and were looking for a second goal which would give them the lead once again. Only 8 minutes after Torino’s goal Lazio managed to get into the lead. Candreva had a crack at goal from a foul from quite a big distance and Gillet didn’t clear the ball that good and Klose was in the right place to show that he still knows where to stand and how to score goals. Both teams kept on searching for more goals but in the end Klose’s goal turned out to be the winning one and Pioli’s men managed to bring in home another 3 points and a 4th consecutive win.
