Di Natale dents Lazio’s Europa League hopes; Atalanta hold Genoa
April 22, 2013

MILAN: A superb first-half volley from veteran Udinese striker Antonio Di Natale secured a precious 1-0 win over Lazio and dented the Biancocelesti’s hopes of European football next season.

With only three points separating the sides and a place in Europe within sight, there was plenty of incentive for Udinese especially against a Lazio side which had won only twice in their past 12 league games.

Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin suggested Lazio’s recent endeavours in the Europa League had perhaps made the difference.

Lazio are now sixth, one place outside of Europe, but on the same points (51) as seventh-placed Udinese.

Lazio lined up with German striker Miroslav Klose but left Brazilian midfielder Hernanes on the bench until coach Vladimir Petkovic sensed the danger midway through the second half.

Earlier on Saturday Genoa spurned the chance to move out of the relegation zone in a 1-1 draw at home to Atalanta.

Antonio Floro Flores opened the scoring for the hosts after just six minutes but Atalanta were level only two minutes later thanks to defender Cristiano Del Grosso.
