Lazio see off Atalanta to claim Coppa Italia
Lazio scored late goals to beat Atalanta 2-0 in the finals of Italian Cup on Wednesday night.
Milinkovic-Savic came from the bench to put Lazio ahead in the 82nd by heading the ball to the net from a corner with Joaquin Correa securing the win in the stoppage time. It was Simone Inzaghi’s first Italian Cup victory as a coach, having won the competition as a player with Lazio three times.
The win also salvaged a disappointing season for Lazio, whose hopes of qualifying for the Champions League ended with a recent loss to Atalanta in the league. The result ended Atalanta’s 13-match unbeaten streak in all competition, a run which lifted the team up to fourth place in Serie A and the final Champions League qualifying berth.
Atalanta has a three-point advantage over AC Milan and Roma with two matches remaining.
