Lazio Keep Pace With Juventus With 5-1 Demolition Of SPAL

By Jerry Mancini.

Lazio continued their strong form this season as they won 5-1 against SPAL with Ciro Immobile leading the way.

The Biancocelesti have shown good form this year and are unbeaten in their last 16 matches. Lazio have now won seven straight games at the Stadio Olimpico, and a win in their next match against Hellas Verona could tie a club record of eight straight home wins.

“We had a great race, good guys to make it simple,” Inzaghi said to Lazio Style Radio.

“They approached it well, that’s the important thing. Now we have to try to recover well and prepare for the next few games.

“The boys made a game simple that wasn’t because SPAL had won two of the last three away games. We have to work on ourselves, there is enthusiasm,” he added when speaking to Sky Sports.

“We always have to improve because the games are all very difficult, but in that spirit we can take away satisfaction.”

Immobile continues to impress this season. He netted twice here and leads the league with 25 goals.

He continued his good form, scoring a brilliant goal after Erit Breisha was far out of his area chasing down the ball.

The Italian showed great patience and delivered a nice shot that went over the head of the defender.

Felipe Caicedo also scored two goals, while summer acquisition from Liverpool, Bobby Adekayne, scored his first goal in Serie A and his first as a Laziali. SPAL scored a late consolation goal through Simone Missiroli to spoil Lazio’s clean sheet.

Joaquin Correa picked up an injury in his recent fixture against AS Roma and forced Simone Inzaghi to use Caicedo who is currently not fully fit.

“I have to ask my strikers for overtime,” Inzaghi told Sky Sports

“Caicedo had some problems in finishing and was very willing to grit his teeth. He gave us a big hand, in another situation, I wouldn’t have risked it.”

As for SPAL, their troubles continue this season as they have found it difficult to produce goals. They are currently in last place and are fortunate to still be one point back of Lecce to avoid relegation.

Lazio will play their make up their game in hand in midweek against Hellas Verona. A win would see Lazio pass Inter Milan into second place.

“With Verona it will not be easy, they are a strong and confident opponent,” added Inzaghi on Lazio Style Radio.

“We’re going to have to be good, but what’s more important is to regain our strength. Tomorrow we will see how the ones who played today will look like. I hope to recover at least a couple on Wednesday

“We are in a great moment, as a coach it is good to spend these days. There is a beautiful atmosphere that we have to maintain at all costs.”
