Lazio twice missed the boat in Bologna. By failing to win (0-0) this Saturday, as part of the 26th day of Serie A, the Romans have indeed missed a golden opportunity to occupy for the first time this season the second place, who held out his arms to them after Inter’s defeat at La Spezia on Friday (1-2). But this draw also puts the players of Maurizio Sarri, third, in a position to be overtaken by AS Roma, which hosts Sassuolo on Sunday, and AC Milan, which receives Salernitana on Monday.
Despite the absence of a goal scored, this meeting proved to be rich in opportunities. Thus Lazio may regret the clumsiness of Pedro, who missed the target when he was in a scoring position (15th), and the wasted opportunity of Luis Alberto, who found himself alone against Lukasz Skorupski (35th ), after a wonderful in-depth opening by Mattia Zaccagni.
For their part, the Bolognese could also have scored, through Lewis Ferguson, but his header found the post (19th), Nikola Moro, whose shot was deflected by Ivan Provedel (33rd), or Giorgos Kyriakopoulos, who saw his cross shot pass just next to the cages (47th). In the end, this draw allows Thiago Motta’s men to climb to 7th place and confirm that they have a card to play in the race for Europe.
