Lazio claims Coppa Italia in Roman derby

Lazio claims Coppa Italia in Roman derby

Senad Lulic scored the only goal of the game to bring Lazio a victory over arch rivals Roma in Coppa Italia final at the Stadio Olympico.

Both Lazio and Roma have had a disappointing Serie A campaign, finishing in the 7th and 6th respectively. The victory in the Coppa Italia final could give the winning side an opportunity to play in Europa League next season. That is why the first ever clash between two sides in a final was a fairly even affair with both sides struggling to create chances. Lulic netted the opener with the close-range finish, after Candreva’s cross has been pushed out by Lobont in the 71st minute.

By claiming a victory Lazio denied Roma record of tenth Coppa Italia win and earned Europa League spot.
