Lazio were arguably Scudetto favourites before the lockdown, but a compressed schedule highlighted their lack of strength in depth, writes Lee Bushe.
COVID ruined Lazio chance
On reflection, few supporters can complain about where Lazio finished this season. There is a sense of disappointment that, having been within touching distance of first place back in February, they weren’t able to maintain their Scudetto challenge. It’s important to remember, however, that Champions League qualification was always the goal and in the end, it was achieved very comfortably.
What’s more, it’s been a historic season for Lazio. Not only did they qualify for Europe’s elite competition for the first time in 13 years, they also ended the campaign with their highest ever points total, while their talisman, Ciro Immobile, equalled Gonzalo Higuain’s record for the most Serie A goals scored in a single season.
