Lazio suffered an away loss to Lazio on Sunday at the Stadio Olympico. Both Lazio and Spezia arrived in good form, having secured victories in their previous matches. Lazio were looking to continue their good run after winning their previous two games against Cremonese away and Hellas Verona at home, by 4-0 and 2-0 respectively. Spezia, meanwhile, had been hopeful of extending their winning run, after a 2-1 victory against Sampdoria. Lazio are currently 2nd with 17 points from 8 matches, while Spezia sit in 12th, with 8 points from 8.

Lazio started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, when Mattia Zaccagni opened the rout on the 12 minute mark. The White and Sky Blues then netted once more and increased their lead thanks to a goal from Alessio Romagnoli, 24 minutes in, finishing the first half 2-0.

Lazio continued to pile on the pressure in the second period and were rewarded, when Sergej Milinkovic-Savic found the net, 61 minutes in. However they weren’t finished yet and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic made it 4-0 just before the full time to make it 4-0.
