Lazio and Milan both scored four goals today on the way to recording impressive victories.
Lazio’s 4-2 won over Genoa snapped a run of three successive losses and took them above Udinese into fourth, and the all important final Champions League spot.
Lazio got off to a great start when Giuseppe Biava put them ahead inside of the opening 10 minutes, But Rodrigo Palacio hit back five minutes later for Genoa to ensure both sides entered the break on level terms.
In the second half Lazio turned it on, scoring three times to wrap up the victory. First midfielder Cristian Ledesma provided the assist for Tommaso Rocchi’s goal after 52 minutes and he was the provider again four minutes later when Hernanes made it 3-1.
Hernanes doubled his account on 66 minutes and, while striker Antonio Floro Flores pulled back a late consolation for Genoa, Lazio were easy winners.
In the day’s other match, AC Milan romped to a 4-1 home win against Cagliari thanks to a first-half masterclass from Robinho.
After opening the scoring on 22 minutes, the Brazilian set up captain Gennaro Gattuso for just his second goal of the season two minutes later.
Robinho grabbed his second strike of the game ten minutes before the break and, although Andrea Cossu replied almost immediately, victory was never in doubt for the champions as Dutch veteran Clarence Seedorf wrapped up the rout for the Champions with 13 minutes to play.
