Palermo spoil Lazio home opener

17 September 2006 17:03

ROME, Sep 17 (SW) - Lazio looked to get their 2006/07 campaign off the ground at home against Palermo on Sunday, but the Sicilians ran out 2-1 winners despite Lazio's dominance.

Palermo goalkeeper Federico Agliardi was easily the man of the match for Francesco Guidolin's men, making numerous spectacular saves.

He did, however, have an early lead to work with as Palermo stunned their hosts on 11 minutes when David Di Michele fired past Angelo Peruzzi after some flat-footed Lazio defending.

The Romans pressured Agliardi for much of the first half, but failed to find a breakthrough with the final touch. That profligacy came to haunt them on 38 minutes.

Di Michele scored on the counterattack against the run of play for his second of the match, leaving the Lazio fans to wonder how their team trailed by two goals.

Lazio finally got their just reward for controlling the flow of play in the 74th minute as a left-wing cross by Stefano Mauri was flicked on goal first-time by Tommaso Rocchi, and the ball skipped in below Agliardi.

Mauri should have made it 2-2 when a right-wing centering pass from Massimo Oddo found him sliding in behind the defense and the far post, but he pulled the ball wide with the goal gaping.

Agliardi then produced one final great save in the third minute of stoppage time to deny Guglielmo Stendardo at the top of the area after Makinwa's service in beat the offside trap.
