Lazio beat Atalanta 2-0 to win Italian Cup for seventh time

(ANSA) – Rome, May 16 – Lazio won the Italian Cup for the seventh time when they beat Atalanta 2-0 in Wednesday’s final at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Late goals by substitute Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Joaquin Correa gave the Roman team the trophy, which also ensures they qualify for next season’s Europa League. Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini was furious that that Bergamo side were not given a penalty for handball by Lazio defender Bastos in the first half when the score was 0-0. The Cup final was marred by violent clashes between a big group of Lazio ‘ultra’ hardcore fans and police before kickoff. Five fans were arrested and a police car was set alight during the trouble.
