    Lazio came away with a 2-1 victory over Juventus in the 29th round of Serie A, solidifying their position as the league’s runner-up. The match was played at a high level, and at times it was enthralling for the spectators. How well did the Polish football players Milik and Szczęsny play?

    About the game

    The first goal came in the 38th minute when Mattia Zaccagni found Sergej Milinković-Savić in the penalty area. Alex Sandro, who was next to him, fell during the fight for the ball. The Serbian midfielder received the ball and beat Wojciech Szczęsny from close range.

    Juventus responded immediately with a goal in the 42nd minute. Surprisingly, it came from a corner kick, which was the first threat the visitors created in the game. The ball caused a lot of confusion in the penalty area, with several shots and rebounds. Finally, Adrien Rabiot pushed the ball into the net.

    Lazio scored the winning goal in the 53rd minute after a beautiful team effort. Luis Alberto elegantly passed the ball to Zaccagni, who hit the ball perfectly. Despite the sharp angle, the ball found the back of the net near the post.

    Wojciech Szczęsny

    Although Wojciech Szczęsny allowed two goals, he still had a decent performance in goal. If it weren’t for him, Lazio would have won by a more significant margin. The Polish goalkeeper made two crucial saves, denying Lazio’s attacks.

    Arkadiusz Milik

    Arkadiusz Milik started the game on the bench and came on in the 63rd minute when Juventus was trailing 2-1. However, he did not have any chances to make an impact on the game as he remained invisible throughout the match. Lazio’s excellent midfield control limited Juventus’s attacking opportunities, making it challenging for Milik to create any chances.

    Overall, Lazio played an impressive game, demonstrating their quality and determination. The win moves them ahead of Juventus in the Serie A standings, keeping them in the race for the title. Meanwhile, Juventus will have to regroup and work on their performance to make up for their loss.
