The final Champions League Group E game saw Lazio travel to the Metropolitano Stadium to face Atletico Madrid, where the Aquile lost 2-0 in what will only be described as a poor performance from Maurizio Sarri’s side.
Atleti took the lead five minutes into the game through Antoine Griezmann. The Biancocelesti failed to play the ball out of defence and were punished as the Frenchman lost his marker and easily scored. Samuel Lino scored the Spanish outfit’s second after combing nicely with Memphis Depay and dispatching a cute volley past Ivan Provedel.
Given both teams had already qualified for the Round of 16 stage of the competition before Wednesday evening, the only thing to play for was who would progress as the group’s leaders.
