The Capital side roared back to life and put Sassuolo the sword in Emilia-Romagna. Lazio had been in poor form recently but earned their second consecutive win on Sunday.
Thomas Strakosha (6.5): had an interesting game where he made some excellent saves but also made some head-scratching mistakes. It is hard to be too harsh on him since he still did not concede a goal and stopped some pretty convincing shots.
Stefan Radu (7): While Radu didn’t have many stand out moments his importance in this match cannot be overlooked. Radu successfully suppressed any attempt by Berardi and as a result got under the Italian’s skin. Berardi eventually fouled Radu and was shown a red.
Luiz Felipe (6): It was not the cleanest of matches for Luiz Felipe but he did all that was asked of him defensively and ultimately helped his team keep a clean sheet.
Wallace (6): Played a decent game with his best time on the pitch being in the first half. The yellow card he received in the 35th made him a lot more cautious and reserved the rest of the match.
Jordan Lukaku (6): Early on Lukaku looked dangerous going forward but as the game went on he had a few mistakes that would lead to his inevitable substitution. Notably was a pass to him by Milinkovic that he just gave up on and let go out of play resulting in Sassuolo gaining possession. The other was a crude foul which resulted in a yellow card for the Belgian.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (8): The 90-million-euro-man provided a man of the match performance with his two goals and overall dominance on the field. His first goal came from a beautiful shot from outside the box that just sailed into the back of the net. His second came off a cross where he overcame a two on one scenario inside the box and headed the ball into the back of the net.
Lucas Leiva (7): Despite a mistake that gave away an early counter-attack Luca Levia had a solid outing for Lazio both defensively and attacking wise. He was all over the pitch and contributed wherever he could be found. Levia gained a yellow in the 27th to stop a dangerous counter-attack and was subbed off in the 59th for some fresh legs.
Alessandro Murgia (6.5): Murgia was heavily involved in the attack and his work inside the box helped gain Lazio a huge advantage. His hold up and skill eventually lead to a handball that after a VAR review was deemed a penalty.
Adam Marusic (4): Marusic tested the Sassuolo defense and made had some great opportunities. Sadly, this will be overshadowed by a bonehead foul in the middle of the second half that led to his sending off.
Ciro Immobile (7): Immobile did not have a great number of chances in the first half but still was menacing going forward for Lazio. He helped the team increase the lead by two by slipping his penalty shot right under Consigli. The rest of his time on the pitch he looked just as dangerous and did not mind not being the focal point of the attack. He dropped back when needed and even spent a portion of the game playing as an attacking midfielder.
Felipe Anderson (7.5): A solid outing for the Brazilian notching two assists. Anderson was menacing his entire time on the pitch whether he was creating dangerous chances or by tracking back and helping the defense.
Senad Lulic (6): Came on for Lukaku in the 59th. Had a great interception and pass to create a great attacking chance in the late first. Other than that there was not much to take away from his substitution.
Marco Parolo (6.5): Came on for Lucas Leiva in the 59th. Was pretty involved in the midfield during his time on the pitch and dropped back to help with defensive responsibilities.
Nani (N/A): Came on for immobile in the 80th minute. Nani was not on the pitch long enough to make much of a difference.
