Europa League

Former Chelsea star, Pedro Rodriguez inspires his team to UEFA Europa League 2-0 home win

Former Chelsea and Barcelona star, Pedro Rodriguez was in action for Lazio in their second game of the UEFA Europa League against Lokomotiv Moscow at the Stadio Olimpico, Rome.

The prolific dazzler retained his spot in his team's starting XI following his outstanding performance for the club in their previous game where he was able to score a goal, having been a key figure in the squad paraded by Maurizio Sarri.

Pedro Rodriguez was fantastic in the game as he provided the assist for his team's first goal of the night which inspired them to the crucial two goals to nil scoreline at full time.

The host opened the scoring sheet in the 13th minute with a goal from Toma Basic to make it one nil after receiving an assist from Pedro Rodriguez, before Patric doubled the lead for the host in the 38th minute to make it two goals to nil going into the half time break.

The tempo of the game got tensed up in the second half as they both put up some physical, tactical and technical displays but none was able to found the back of the net with all attempts to do so proving abortive as it ended two goals to nil at full time.

The win for Lazio which was their first in the current European campaign has now taken them to the 2nd spot on the table with 3 points in 2 games played, and as such be hoping to keep the winning streaks going in their next fixture so as to continue their pursuit in the competition.
