Start on the right footEuropa League of the Lazio that in the opening match at the Olimpico has beat Feyenoord 4-2. Sarri’s team dominated the first half, unblocking the situation as early as 3 ‘with the insertion of Luis Alberto only in front of the goalkeeper. Fifteen minutes Felipe Anderson resulted in a lightning-fast restart e Vecino in the 28th minute he dropped the three of a kind by reiterating a ball rejected by Bijlow on the net. In the second half, Vecino again dropped the poker on an assist from Luis Alberto before the Gimenez brace in the last twenty minutes for the Feyenoord.


One time it was enough for Lazio, in reality even less, to scramble Feyenoord and forget the dross of the defeat in the league with Napoli. Sarri limited the turnover aware of the importance of winning the group of Europa League and, consequently, of the three points against Feyenoord. The approach to the race did the rest. A Lazio cannibal devoured the Dutch team with a practically perfect half hour that led the Biancocelesti to 3-0 without leaving the opponent’s right of reply.

An hour with the best available to then think about the championship, a response on the pitch to the first discontent putting the last finalist of the Conference League on the corner. Verticality, dribble and technique that led Lazio to the immediate advantage with the invention of Vecino who sent in goal from the outside Luis Alberto for a comfortable 1-0. The doubling came in the quarter of an hour with the trademark of Lazio, the lightning-fast restart in the vertical, concluded by Felipe Anderson returning from the right and kicking on the first post surprising Bijwol. Not only that, even before half an hour Vecino first he was denied the goal with a “Dudek-style” kickback from the Feyenoord goalkeeper, then he found it by reiterating on the net a refusal of the goalkeeper on a cross from Zaccagni.

Before and after many other occasions for the Lazio of Sarri, who physiologically slipped only at the beginning of the second half with a soft approach to the second half that angered the Biancoceleste coach. A little bad, Vecino confirmed the evening of grace and as a protagonist by signing first the brace with the perfect assist from Luis Alberto in the 63rd minute, then causing the penalty on Gimenez which kicked off the sketchy comeback of Feyenoord ended with a brace from the Mexican three minutes from time after Idrissi’s cross-post.


Vecino 7.5 – Inspired and in the match right from the start. First he sends Luis Alberto into the goal to unlock the match, then touches and finds personal joy. In the middle of the field he dominates in duels and ends the match with two goals and an assist, not bad. In order not to miss anything, however, he naively causes Feyenoord’s penalty kicking Gimenez in the area.

Luis Alberto 7.5 – Stands out for talent on the front, but that’s not new. Glacial in front of the goalkeeper after entering with the right times in the defense of Feyenoord, then he draws football also facilitated by the not suffocating marking of the Dutch. Assist for Vecino’s brace.

Felipe Anderson 7 – Like the two colleagues he is dominant throughout the first half both on the right and on the left. The goal is a pearl that surprises the not perfect Bijlow, but that completes an excellent restart of Lazio.

Zaccagni 6.5 – On the left he does what he wants, but he is frantic in the last choice which costs him some excellent wasted opportunity. Paired with Marusic, however, he does what he wants.
