Lazio's positive tradition in Udine continues with Crespo brace

Updated: Apr 30

Game 11, Serie A

Sunday, November 18, 2001

Stadio Friuli, Udine

Udinese Lazio 1-4

Lazio are favoured by two Udinese red cards but ultimately clinch a convincing big away win.

The game was played in front of 14,000 spectators and was largely controlled by Lazio who were wasteful in the first half with Hernan Crespo and Simone Inzaghi missing clear chances. The Romans continued to attack after the break and got the opening goal after 53 minutes through previous year's top serie A scorer Crespo with a tap in, set up by Inzaghi.

A match changing moment arrived two minutes later when Udinese defender Valerio Bertotto was given his marching orders. Lazio then doubled their lead on 73 minutes through Fabio Liverani after a clever back heel by Inzaghi.

In the 76th minute Udinese did pull a goal back with Samuel Caballero but another red card and two late goals by Argentine forwards Crespo and Claudio Lopez finally secured the victory for the Biancocelesti.

In the end a convincing win for Lazio who made their obvious technical superiority count. The home team were maybe a little unlucky that their 4 bookings brought 2 reds while Lazio's 5 all got away avoiding an early shower.
