Lazio endured a difficult 2015-16 campaign and this resulted in manager Simone Inzaghi being brought in to improve the club’s fortunes in April.
The new boss has certainly improved the results at the capital outfit, who are on the verge of entering into the top four. However, they could have certainly made a tilt for the top three places had it not been for the four dropped points against Bologna and Torino. Manager Inzaghi has claimed that he is extremely disappointed with those dropped points. On the positive side, the club did manage to get a late equaliser against Bologna.
However, Torino managed to hit back Lazio with a taste of their own medicine as Ljajić scored with a similar late goal in the 2-2 draw. Inzaghi claimed that Lazio deserved a win against Torino. The club will have an opportunity to redeem themselves and claim a first win in two league matches when they face Cagliari in the upcoming game. The season is fast turning out into a great campaign, as the club are only six points away from table leaders Juventus. The possibility of winning the title may have evaporated even at this early stage, but even a top two finish looks likely since Roma are only four points ahead.

Felipe Anderson’s agent has denied that the Lazio player will be leaving the club in the summer.
There have been rumors that Felipe Anderson will be leaving the Italian club for Manchester United after the club has failed to qualify for the Europa League.
The Lazio director stated some time ago that he has turned down a €50m offer for the forward but did not tell from which club it was. There are media reports that Manchester United might be interested in boosting their attacking options especially now with Rooney playing in a central role in midfield. Indeed, this season Manchester United has been relying on young players such as Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford for goals. In Felipe Anderson, they will have a trusted and proven scorer that will allow them to win important games.
So far this season, the Lazio player has made 45 appearances for the team and managed to score 9 goals. For a player that is still 23, he still has time to improve and to become a world-class striker. Continue reading Anderson not leaving Lazio according to agent
Lazio manager Stefano Pioli says that he is extremely delighted with the way his team played in the 2-0 victory over Hellas Verona. Lazio have been one of the inform teams in the Italian Serie A in the last few weeks.
They have been unbeaten since suffering the 1-0 defeat against Genoa at the start of February. This form has seen them move into third place ahead of Sampdoria and Napoli, who have both slipped to more than four points behindPioli’s team. After having captured the third place at such a crucial stage in the season,Pioli will start dreaming about a Champions League spot.
Qualification for the Champions League will be an immense achievement forPioli, who came to the club only this season as the replacement for Edoardo Reja. Despite having an old strikeforce featuring the likes of Miroslav Klose, they have been able to build from the back. A major reason for the immense form has been Brazilian midfielder Felipe Anderson, who has nine goals in 21 appearances. This form has seen him being linked with the likes of Manchester City and United with a possible £ 30 million offer coming in the summer. For the moment, he is keeping things from the ground and was one of scorers in the victory over Hellas Verona.

The Champions League, Europe’s premier club competition, starts off with 32 teams competing to become the best club team in Europe. The competition begins in September, but it’s really only when the competition enters the phase consisting of 16 teams in February and March that supporters begin to dream – and plan – the possibility of their team lifting the coveted trophy. In 2009, the Champions League Final will be held in the Stadio Olimpico, which takes place in what is considered one of Europe’s most prestigious cities: Rome. The stadium itself is synonymous with major sporting events. In fact, it is the location where Andreas Brehme scored from the penalty spot to ensure victory for West Germany in the FIFA World Cup Final in 1990. It is also home to the Italian National team, as well as two of Rome’s top football teams – S.S. Lazio and A.S. Roma. With a capacity of just over 72,000, its historical significance and superb atmosphere ensure it will be the perfect setting to host the 2009 Champions League Final. Of course, following your team to a Champions League Final provides a great excuse for a trip away, but when do you start planning? The quarter-final draw presents each team with their potential semi-final and final opponents; and whilst planning your trip at such an early stage may seem optimistic, it may prove beneficial.The added attraction for supporters is that the 2009 Champions League Final will be contested in Rome, which is a popular tourist destination for visitors to Italy. Therefore, supporters can extend their visit to take in the delights of this historic and romantic city. And whoever plays out the final this year is sure to draw a significant following of football and sports fans alike to the city. Therefore, it is important to remember that leaving the planning of your flights – and even organising to stay at one of the Rome hotels – to the last kick of the semi-final may be risky, and likely to prove more expensive. Such risks need to be weighed up against the possibility of being the only Manchester United fan in Rome during a Chelsea v Arsenal final, for example. The logistics will ultimately depend on your optimism as a supporter, and of course your team’s ability! But with the final being contested in a city renowned for gladiatorial battles, if dreams do turn into reality then it is sure be a night to remember.
