Lazio’s 0-0 draw with Verona this evening might be seen as an indication they don’t quite have what it takes to keep up their challenge for the Scudetto this season.
Following the stalemate, during which Lazio threatened from a distance through Luis Alberto, and Ciro Immobile who hit the side netting, the Biancocelesti remain in third, a point behind Inter Milan, and four points off leaders Juventus.
But, as WFi‘s Jerry Mancini points out, the club are in the middle of a memorable season regardless, and qualification for the Champions League would itself be a great achievement.
In the 2017/18 season, Lazio finished just short of a Champions League spot. The club was level in fourth place with Inter Milan, but didn’t qualify due to a worse record in the meetings between the two sides.
