Lazio continued their scintillating run of form after winning 2-0 against Monza this afternoon.

Despite multiple high quality scoring chances in the first half, the hosts failed to find the back of the net and struggled to create after the break.

Veteran attacker Pedro handed Maurizio Sarri’s men an early lead in the first half before Sergej Milinkovic-Savic added an insurance goal just after the break. The Serbian’s strike increased his all-time goal tally with Lazio to 65, surpassing Miroslav Klose and Goran Pandev to become the club’s highest foreign goalscorer.

The win gave the capital club a big boost in their pursuit of Champions League football, upping their point total to 55, five more than third placed Inter.
