Italy striker Immobile coolly opened home within 11 minutes at the Stadio Olimpico to finish a rebound which looked impossible when the hosts went a man down in the fourth minute.
Goalkeeper Luis Maximiano was shipped off early in the match, and Maurizio Sarri's side was a goal down in the 38th moment following several botches from Alessio Romagnoli and Mattia Zaccagni prompted a senseless foul on Nicola Sansone and a penalty which Marko Arnautovic cheerfully concealed. Lazio leveled the game on the field when Adama Soumaoro picked up two cards over the course of about five minutes toward the end of the first half. Furthermore, they were level on the scoreboard in the 68th minute on account of Lorenzo De Silvestri's own goal. Later Sergej Milinkovic-Savic sealed all three points for the team.
