This season, if Lazio win tickets to the Champions League 2023/24, passionate fans will chant Zaccagni’s name. Because this Italian player is creating a brilliant season for himself, while his fellow stars are obscured.
The goal that sealed a 2-1 victory over strong rivals Juventus on Saturday was Zaccagni’s 10th victory in Serie A this season. No Italian player has scored more goals than Zaccagni, not even his teammate Ciro Immobile, Italy’s top scorer.
In this important match, Zaccagni also provided an assist for Milinkovic-Savic to score the opener in the 38th minute before Rabiot equalized for Juve four minutes later. With 3 points, Sarri’s Lazio is now second in the table, 16 points behind Napoli (74-58).
In addition to the “3 point” goal at the beginning of the second half, Zaccagni also hit goalkeeper Szczesny again but this goal was denied for offside. However, that is enough for us to understand why Sarri considers Zaccagni the most important factor right now, more than Immobile, Pedro or Luis Alberto.
Before this important goal, Zaccagni – who was dropped from Italy’s squad in the EURO 2024 qualifying campaign – also had another important goal to help Lazio beat AS Roma 1-0 in the Rome derby last month. 2. After defeating Juventus, Lazio defeated the 6 strongest opponents in the tournament including Napoli, Roma (2 times), Milan, Inter and Atalanta
