Dominant Lazio eliminate Galatasaray in Rome.
Heading into Europa League play Lazio needed just a draw in order to advance in the tournament. From the opening kick to the closing whistle Lazio pushed forward in attack and were able to pin Galatasaray back.
The home side finally broke the deadlock in the second half on a lovely corner that was headed in by Marco Parolo. Just minutes later Lazio doubled their lead through Felipe Anderson. While Galatasaray cut the deficit in half just minutes later the game was never in doubt. Miroslav Klose came on as a sub and put the final nail in the coffin.
Following the game Marco Parolo provided his thoughts to Sky Sport.
“We play better with two attacking mids, we attack much deeper. We have to play with different formations, or rather we need to adapt to be able to play in any style. Lazio has changed and if we were to run into Bayern Leverkusen, who we already played, now we have experience and are confident. It will be difficult to beat this Lazio.”
