Empty-handed Lazio straight from Madrid to Last-16 draw (2-0)

SS Lazio returned to Rome empty-handed after suffering an away defeat in Madrid that put an end to the group stage (2-0). Despite a hard-fought battle between both best Group E sides during the 90-minute clash, the Italians found no reward to their effort. Griezman's early goal (06') put the locals ahead soon and a second was added after the break by Lino (51'). The Italians enter the round of 16 draw as Group E second placed.

Pedro Rodríguez formed in the Biancocelesti starting line-up and showed his top-quality skills well-known in Spain, such as a great action in the box dribbling several opponents before executing a dangerous cross. In the 57th minute, he was replaced by Felipe Anderson.

Atlético settled well onto the pitch soon and showed their determination to get the most through an early opener by Griezmann. The Italians responded by increasing the pressure and creating chances in search of an equaliser, although it was again the local team who came close but VAR neutralized a goal that would have been the 2-0.

But soon after the break Atlético's second goal would finally arrive, after a combination in the box between Memphis and Lino building the 2-0 (51') with a volley inside the area. However, Lazio kept on pushing in search of a goal until their last breath, with an unrewarded right-footed shot by Guendouzi to the side of the net.
