Serie A : Lazio 3-1 AC Milan,Klose and Parolo fire hosts to victory
Milan ( Agencies + DIPLOMAT.SO) – Lazio climbed into Serie A’s top three on Saturday after two goals at the start of the second half set them on their way to a 3-1 come-from-behind win over AC Milan at the Stadio Olimpico.
Milan – who finished with 10 men after Philippe Mexes’ stoppage-time tussle with Stefano Mauri – gained an early lead in the Italian capital as former Roma man Jeremy Menez took advantage of Dusan Basta’s mistake to race away and provide an accomplished finish for his 10th league goal of the season.
Miroslav Klose and Antonio Candreva were both guilty of wasting chances for the home side to equalise in the first half, but, after the interval, Lazio turned the match around in the space of four minutes.
First Klose set up Marco Parolo for a fine effort, before Riccardo Montolivo’s misplaced pass let the former Germany international in and he made no mistake in front of goal.
Parolo then added a second inside the final 10 minutes, although it may have come at a cost with substitute Filip Djordjevic appearing to injure himself by treading on the ball in the build-up.
Victory saw Lazio climb above both Sampdoria and Napoli into third, with those sides not in action until Sunday and Monday respectively.
For Milan, defeat extended their winless run in the league to five matches, as Filippo Inzaghi’s men continue to struggle to find any degree of consistency in their results.For more news and stories, join us on Facebook,Twitter , or contact us through our Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
