The season so far had been a positive one, following the footsteps of the previous campaign. Lazio were currently 5th.

The match

The game between Lazio and Bologna was not an exceptional one. The Biancocelesti did not play well but the Rossoblu played even worse. Bologna had an enormous chance in the 19th minute. Corrado Bernicchi, all alone in front of Lucidio Sentimenti IV and with all the time in the world, was only able to hit the woodwork.

In the 26th minute Lazio went ahead. Romolo Alzani took a free kick, the ball was first headed by Aldo Puccinelli and then touched by Mario Magrini. After an interception from a Bologna defender, the ball landed at Dionisio Arce’s feet and he had no difficulty in scoring. 1-0 for Lazio.

Bologna did very little to equalise and Lazio had numerous chances to score a second goal but wasted all of them. In the 73rd minute Puccinelli placed a ball so invitingly easy for Magrini that is was more difficult to miss than put the ball into the net. Magrini decided on the more difficult option.

At the end of the day, two more points to Lazio to end the first part of the season.
