Under the pressure of the victory in the derby, Lazio prevails on Lokomotiv Moscow and cancels the zero in the standings in the Europa League resulting from the defeat with Galatasaray. The goals of Basic and Patric close the practice already in the first half. A success crowned by a good performance by Sarri’s team that could have concluded with a larger booty. The Lazio evening, however, was grayed out by the injury of Immobile who stopped before the interval due to a resentment in his right flexor. His conditions for Sunday’s trip to Bologna have to be evaluated.
