An undeserved loss against Liverpool

What a bad luck! We lose against the English club after playing a more of a decent match. Except for the first 5 minutes when the host team was dominating, the rest of the match was totally equal with Lazio having the better chances, especially with Diakite and Foggia near the end of the match.

Overall it was a satisfying performance considering the oponent who was playing with the best team available at the moment. As far as our team is concerned, we were surprized with Makinwa starting and playing almost the entire match. All players, save for Matuzalem and maybe Makinwa had a decent match. Carrizo is such an assurance in the goal. Good surprise was Lichtsteiner and then Foggia in the second half who had a great shot saved by Pepe Reina.
