The votes and judgments of the protagonists of the match valid for the first day of the Europa League between Galatasaray and Lazio: the report cards
STRAKOSHA 4 – Sarri gives him confidence and the Albanian combines it very big. Inexplicable, unexpected and inconceivable the mistake that allowed Galatasaray to take the lead, worse than a horror film. The Tuscan coach will think twice next time before depriving himself of Pepe Reina.
LAZZARI 6 – From one of his descents comes the admonition for Muslera, then the usual scooter at full capacity on the right wing. Many bucks, associated with excellent defensive attention. Half a vote less for the svirgolata that put Strakosha in difficulty on the occasion of the Turkish advantage.
LUIZ FELIPE 6.5 – Great closing in sliding on the conclusion of Dervisoglu in the very first minutes of the game, and then several advances, a sign of how the injury is now behind him. Sarri can smile for the performance of the Brazilian, who has now become a point of reference.
ACERBI 6 – Ok in the marking phase, where he keeps the insidious Dervisoglu at bay. Less well in setting, especially when he puts Luiz Felipe in difficulty by allowing Akturkoglu to fly towards the door of Strakosha. However, it is his unmarking throw that puts Milinkovic in front of goal.
HYSAJ 6 – Few worries from the parts of the Albanian, with Morutan never dangerous and Yedlin even less, worried by the fixed presence in front of Zaccagni. The former Napoli almost seems to adapt to his opponents without ever trying to push into the Galatasaray half.
AKPA AKPRO 6 – Dynamism as much as you want, a little less precision. Until the moment of the substitution he is the most on the ball in the Lazio midfield, the one who puts the most effort and shows his muscles. Warned during the first half, he is replaced at the beginning of the second half, perhaps to avoid worse problems (from 56 ‘ MILIKOVIC 5.5 – A few quality flashes and nothing more. Caught by Acerbi’s panoramic launch, the Sergeant is unconvinced in front of Muslera, almost afraid of the Uruguayan goalkeeper, ending up depositing the ball in his arms)
LEIVA 6 – Nothing transcendental for the Brazilian, who suffers little against Cicaldau and Kutlu’s insertions. The Turk Telekom challenge is, at least for three quarters of the match, characterized by so much intensity and little precision. In the confusion, the biancoceleste midfielder dictates the times and does well as a filter (from 83 ‘ CATALDI s.v.)
LUIS ALBERTO 5.5 – For the Spaniard a performance along the lines of that of San Siro against Milan. Unjustified absence of Turk Telekom, in him Sarri hoped to find the quality that Lazio needed in an angular challenge like the one in Turkey. (from 66 ′ BASIC 5,5 – Like Zaccagni, still a little out of Sarri’s game, he ends up homologating to the confusion that reigns supreme in the Biancocelesti following Strakosha’s own goal).
FELIPE ANDERSON 6.5 – From the first minutes it puts the Galatasaray left chain in crisis with its accelerations, a sign of how the physical condition is progressively growing. Van Aanholt makes the sign of the cross every time the Brazilian is in his part, but as the minutes go by he takes his measures and Felipe becomes less and less dangerous. (from 66 ′ PEDRO 6 – The Spaniard tries to put all his enormous experience into a delicate challenge in a plant that puts the chills. The former Chelsea snatches enough for the commitment and a couple of attempts, albeit not very dangerous).
IMMOBILE 6 – For Ciro almost two thirds of a race of commitment and sacrifice without being able to do that little bit more. On a couple of occasions he is good at shooting in depth dictating the launch from the rear, but failing to finish towards the goal. (from 56 ′ MURIQI 5,5 – The Kosovar returns to Istanbul on the Galatasaray side after a year and gets the whistles for his past at Fenerbahce. The pressure plays bad tricks and the Pirate ends up disputing yet another insipid performance).
ZACCAGNI 5.5 – For the former Hellas Verona first appearance as a starter in the biancoceleste and a lot of effort on the left side. In the first half he shows up for some acceleration, but it is evident that he is still a foreign body in Mr. Sarri’s tactical chessboard.
