Stadio Pierluigi Penzo, Venice

Venezia Lazio 0-2

In the last match of the season Lazio win in Venice and consolidate fifth position

The season had been a good one so far. At the end of the first half Lazio were ninth but in the second things improved considerably and Lazio had climbed to fourth place, shared with Genoa.

Today’s match was the last of the season.

But in the second half Lazio scored. In the 53rd minute Silvio Piola set up Aldo Puccinelli for the Biancocelesti’s first goal and then yet another assist from Lazio’s star centre forward, just when Venezia were putting on more and more pressure on the Biancoceleste defence, allowed Giuseppe Baldo to double in the 84th minute.
