Lazio 1-0 Hellas Verona: Player Ratings

Mandas 6.5 – Another solid performance tonight, proving he’s more than just a backup goalkeeper. Made a crucial save in a goalmouth scramble late in the game.

Patric 6 – Tudor wants him to move the ball faster, which is his only small flaw tonight. He looks a bit clumsy with the ball at his feet, but he handles his defensive duties without any issues.

Romagnoli 6.5 – Celebrating his 300th Serie A appearance, he hardly put a foot wrong tonight. Kept his direct opponent in check, showing high concentration throughout the match. A reliable presence.

Casale 6 – Apart from his physical attributes, he showcased his reading of the game today. However, he picked up a yellow card, got agitated, and Tudor decided not to risk him further. Substituted by Pedro (6) from the 61st minute, who made a positive impact, hitting the post from a free-kick.

Isaksen 5 – Played in an unfamiliar position as a wide player, and it showed. Missed a couple of chances and made some simple mistakes. Seemed lost. Zaccagni (7) came on in the 60th minute and changed the game. Making a comeback from an ankle injury, he scored the winning goal against his former team, Hellas Verona. Deserves the MVP title.

Guendouzi 6.5 – Fits perfectly into Tudor’s style of play, strong in duels and with a forward-looking vision. Today, he regained possession several times and provided quick passes to his teammates.

Kamada 7 – A different player under Tudor compared to Sarri’s reign, more confident and purposeful. Always involved, raised his game towards the end, becoming a decisive factor in both attack and defense. A versatile asset.

Marusic 6.5 – Endless running up and down the flank. Tudor convinced him to see himself as a winger rather than a defender, and it seems to be working. Even when defending, he proves his defensive capabilities.

Felipe Anderson 6 – Started as an attacking midfielder, less influential than in previous matches, but he created the best chance of the game, hitting the crossbar with a solo effort. Looked solid when dropping deeper and occasionally covering defensively. Vecino (substitute) not rated as he came on in the 89th minute.

Luis Alberto 6.5 – A bit of everything, operating as a midfielder and winger, but mainly making incursions forward. Constantly making runs into the opposition box. Provided the assist for Zaccagni’s goal. Inaccurate in front of goal, but all of Lazio’s attacks flowed through him. Classy. Substituted by Hysaj (substitute) in the 76th minute, not rated as he came on late.

Castellanos 6 – Ran tirelessly, worked hard to help his teammates, and battled with opponents. Also showed some moments of skill. With less space compared to the Juventus game, he dropped deeper to support his teammates’ runs. Immobile (substitute) not rated as he came on in the 88th minute.

Igor Tudor 7 – Except for the Roma derby, Tudor’s tenure at Lazio has been smooth. Fourth consecutive victory, third in the league, sixth place, and legitimate hopes for Champions League qualification. His direct and dangerous style of play has been effective. Showed courage by fielding Zaccagni, Felipe Anderson, Pedro, Luis Alberto, and Castellanos together, and it paid off.


Montipò 6.5 – The standout player for the Verona team. Notable for a crucial foot save on Isaksen in the first half and made two more excellent saves in the second half before conceding to Zaccagni’s strike.

Tchatchoua 6 – Initially struggled but then found his footing against the opponents. Showed better performance in pushing forward compared to Cabal. Substituted by Centonze (not rated) in the 78th minute.

Magnani 6 – Demonstrated solid performance in the heart of Verona’s defense, limiting the opposition’s attacks, especially in the first half.

Coppola 6 – Formed a reliable partnership with Magnani, minimizing threats to Montipò’s goal. Faced more challenges in the second half but also came close to scoring.

Cabal 6 – Provided decent cover on the left flank along with Lazovic, focusing more on defensive duties.

Serdar 6 – A solid presence in midfield, acting as a shield for the defense and disrupting Lazio’s attacks, especially in the first half.

Folorunsho 5.5 – Expected to bring both substance and quality to the midfield but struggled, particularly in terms of creativity. Substituted by Henry (not rated) in the 86th minute.

Noslin 5.5 – Started well on the left flank, contributing effectively in the first half but faded in the second half.

Mitrovic 5.5 – Operated in the attacking midfield, occasionally drifting wide but lacked impactful plays in the final third. Substituted by Duda (5.5) in the 60th minute.

Lazovic 6 – Deployed in a more defensive role to contain Isaksen’s threat on his side, performed well against the opposition. Substituted by Bonazzoli (not rated) in the 78th minute.

Swiderski 5.5 – Didn’t receive much service but wasted a promising chance in the first half. Worked hard defensively. Substituted by Suslov (5) in the 60th minute, whose entry had a negative impact, losing the ball that led to Zaccagni’s goal.

Marco Baroni 6 – Set up Verona well in the first half, surprising Lazio with tactical adjustments. However, their second-half performance was too passive, resulting in the decisive goal and eventual defeat.
