Lazio continues to not know what a loss is since the start of the season in the Italian football elite. The Romans beat visiting Inter 3-1 on Friday night at the Olimpico, handing the Nerazzurri their first defeat, and it’s safe to say that the Eagles’ victory was secured thanks to two Spanish torpedoes.
Luis Alberto and Pedro Rodriguez, who came on as substitutes, played a key role for the hosts, scoring once each in the second half.
Felipe Andersson gave the home side the lead minutes before the break when he headed home from Milinkovic-Savic’s pass, and the visitors were not far behind as Lautaro Martinez equalized in the 51st minute. Then the Argentine converted Denzel Dumfries’ pass into a goal – 1:1.
In the closing fifteen minutes, Lazio’s Spanish reserves burst onto the scene. Their goals can definitely compete in beauty, first Luis Alberto stuck the ball into the top corner of the rival goalkeeper after an assist from his compatriot Pedro – 2:1 in the 75th minute.
A little more than ten minutes later, Pedro himself scored, realizing thanks to a nice pass from Ciro Immobile and with an equally attractive goal for the final 3:1.
With the victory, the Roman club topped the standings, albeit temporarily – with 7 points, while Inter has 6.
