Lazio staged an impressive comeback to secure a win over Frosinone in Serie A on Friday night. The victory was crucial for Lazio’s hopes of finishing in the top four this season. Frosinone, on the other hand, were looking to ease their relegation worries.
Frosinone took the lead just before the hour mark through Matias Soule’s penalty, causing an upset to be on the cards. However, Lazio quickly rallied and turned the game around. Valentin Castellanos scored on the 70th minute, followed by Gustav Isaksen two minutes later. Patric sealed the victory for Lazio with a goal in the final minutes of normal time. Lazio finished the day in eighth place, while Frosinone dropped to 14th.
In another match, league leaders Inter Milan faced Genoa, who started and finished the day in 13th place. Marko Arnautovic, on loan from Inter Milan, opened the scoring for Genoa. However, Radu Dragusin equalized for Inter Milan just before half-time, and the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
Earlier in the evening, Torino visited Florence with a four-match undefeated streak. However, Luca Ranieri’s goal in the 83rd minute secured a 1-0 victory for Fiorentina. Ranieri’s goal was his first in the league this season, and he has become a regular first-team choice for Fiorentina. Under the guidance of Vicenzo Italiano, Fiorentina has a real chance of finishing in the UEFA Champions League spots.
Meanwhile, Napoli and Monza played out a goalless draw at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium. Napoli, who were without their first-choice forward, struggled to find the back of the net despite having more shots on goal. The match ended with a feisty atmosphere, resulting in both managers, Walter Mazzarri and Raffaele Palladino, being sent off from the bench.
Overall, it was an eventful night in Serie A with Lazio, Fiorentina, and Inter Milan all involved in closely contested matches. The race for the top four spots continues to heat up as the season progresses.
