Senad Lulic goal wins Coppa Italia for Lazio

Sunday 26 May 2013 22:57

Lazio won the Coppa Italia for the sixth time by beating city rivals Roma 1-0 in a day of high tension at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Senad Lulic, pictured, tapped home the winning goal from close range in the 70th minute after Roma goalkeeper Bogdan Lobont tipped Antonio Candreva's cross into his path.

The victory qualifies Lazio for the Europa League, salvaging a disappointing season and rubbing salt into the wounds of their old foes, who miss out on European football despite finishing sixth – one place clear of their rivals.
