Porto 2 – 1 Lazio: another close defeat

Contrary to the Liverpool match, I was unable to watch this one, therefore my views presented below will be based on what I read on the Italian papers and other Lazio websites.

First half  totally belong to Porto: despite scoring twice (one from a set-piece and one from a brilliant couter attack) the Portuguese side was much better in every dimension of the game. Probably Rossi`s decision to start with youg Tuia in the central defense paid its price as he was partially to blame for the second goal.

In the second half, Rossi made some changes in the midfield and attack and Lazio looked much better and more offensive. However, it was Ledesma who scored again and for the third friendly in a raw our attackers could not score which may prove to be a problem already.

Players who did well: Carrizo, Rozenhal, Ledesma, Foggia, Radu, Diakite. The others were from medium to poor. You may watch the highlights below.
