Hernanes converted a
first-half penalty and Miroslav Klose scored in stoppage-time to give Lazio a 2-0 win over 10-man Atalanta in Serie A on
Sunday, ending a three-match winless run.
Lazio, fourth with 33 points from 18 games, badly needed a
win to keep alive their title challenge after crashing to a 4-0
defeat at lowly Siena a week ago. Before that, they had been
held to home draws by Udinese and Chievo.
Brazilian midfielder Hernanes converted in the 20th minute
from a penalty awarded for a clumsy challenge by Andrea Masiello
on Stefan Radu, performing an impressive double back-flip in
Atalanta's Stefano Lucchini was sent off in the 52nd minute
for a second bookable offence and Klose clinched the points by
outfoxing his marker and side-footing home from 12 metres for
his ninth goal in stoppage-time.
The German also went for an acrobatic celebration, choosing
a less ambitious forward somersault.
