Perfect end for 2021 with goal and win vs Venezia (1-3)

Lazio concluded their 2021 calendar year in style beating Venezia 3-1 away on Wednesday to remain in the hunt for European qualification. Pedro scored the opener with an early goal, three minutes after kick-off, and displayed an outstanding 90-minute performance upfront. The Spaniard’s record this season is absolutely brilliant, with seven goals in light blue this season.

It was the Roman side's 24th league win of 2021, a new club record for a calendar year, and left them in eighth place ahead of the winter break on 31 points, three behind fifth-placed Juventus.

Pedro Rodriguez put Maurizio Sarri's side ahead with a weaving run and finish before Francesco Forte headed 16th-placed Venezia level before halftime.

Francesco Acerbi restored Lazio's lead early in the second half and substitute Luis Alberto volleyed home a third at the death, shortly after Venezia's replacement Tanner Tessman was sent off.
