With arts and crafts, Lazio postpones Napoli’s title celebration a little longer
Lazio wins 2-0 over Sassuolo on their own field

The last remaining rival in the title race won 2-0 over Sassuolo on their own field, but don’t ask how. The visitors had quite a few good chances for the equalizer. And with any result other than a win for Lazio, Napoli were champions for the third time in history.

Napoli plays away against Udinese on Thursday

Points were also important in the battle for the Champions League places for Lazio, which took an early lead.

Noteworthy was a goal by Ciro Immobile, which was first disallowed, then disallowed again, then disallowed after a second check anyway when the video referee detected offside earlier in the attack. Through Luiz Felipe, the 1-0 fell moments later.

Davide Frattesi then hit the crossbar on behalf of Sassuolo and a hard shot by Domenico Berardi was turned away. In extra time, Toma Basic scored the liberating goal for the home club.

For Napoli, a point on Thursday’s visit to Udinese is enough to become official champions.

Inter on target

Behind Lazio, Internazionale is the big winner in the battle for Champions League qualification. While AC Milan (1-1 at home against Cremonese) and AS Roma (1-1 on a visit to Monza) spilled points, Inter took a big hit on a visit to Hellas Verona.

Edin Dzeko, two hits against Verona

Lautaro Martínez and Edin Dzeko both made two. Denzel Dumfries played more than an hour.

The 37-year-old Dzeko, record international of Bosnia-Herzegovina, has been negotiating a new contract at Milan for some time. Because of his high salary demands, placement for the billion-dollar ball makes the situation much easier for the club. And with his eighth and ninth of the season, the striker also proved his worth on the pitch.

Marten de Roon scored one of the most beautiful goals of the day with a volley. His Atalanta beat Spezia 3-2.
