Today’s game was the first match of the second half of the regular season.

Audace Esperia, who had lost 5-0 against Lazio in the first half of the season, were determined to win and started positively, opening the score with Galassi I after only five minutes. It did not last long. Lazio equalised thanks to Emilio Folpini, able to convert a good cross from Corrado Corelli. Marcello Consiglio then scored in the 28th minute but the referee mysteriously disallowed it. However the 2-1 for Lazio was on its way. Consiglio put the ball into the net two minutes from half time, following a scramble in the Audace penalty box.

After just four minutes of the second half Consiglio scored again with a volley on the rebound after a Folpini post. Galassi II made it 3-2 in the 61st minute but Lazio then took no more risks and scored three more goals in 11 minutes: in the 64th Correlli took advantage of an Augusto Faccani pass, 7 minutes later Folpini made it 5 for Lazio with an assist from Carlo Maranghi and three minutes later Folpini again took advantage of yet another defensive blunder taking the score to 6-2.
