After losing at Terni the previous week, the Biancocelesti were called to repeat the positive home performances of the first two games of the season. The first goal came in the 42nd minute after Ghio arrived just late on a great pass by Giuliano Fortunato in the 25th minute and a possible penalty waved away by referee Francesco Panzini (who fortunately would not deny Lazio a penalty on May 12, 1974). Anyway, Fortunato crossed for Giuseppe Massa whose header was parried by Luigi Bertossi. The ball arrived at the feet of defender Mauro Gatti who started contemplating what to do with it. While he was thinking about it, Ghio put the ball in the back of the net. A minute later Paolo Bergamo elbowed Rinero in the face and the ref sent him off.

In the second half, Lazio controlled and scored three more. In the 48th minute Rinero capitalised a personal move with a shot under the crossbar and seven minutes later made it three when a perfect pass from Arrigo Dolso allowed him to be face to face with the keeper. Fortunato made it four in the 65th minute thanks to another Dolso assist.

An easy win for Lazio, now there was a need to do better away from home.
