Lazio climb to 3rd spot

Marco Parolo scored a brace either side of Miroslav Klose’s fourth goal of the season as Lazio moved up to third in Serie A with a bad-tempered 3-1 victory over AC Milan late on Saturday. Embattled Milan travelled to the Stadio Olimpico desperate to make amends after last week’s shock 1-0 home defeat to Atalanta dented their chances of qualifying for next season's CL.

But despite Jeremy Menez hitting a fourth-minute opener, the visitors were outplayed for the remainder of the half and undone in four second-half minutes when Klose turned provider for Parolo before adding his own name to the scoresheet.

Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi made a series of  tactical changes which left them exposed and Lazio pounced to extend their lead in the 81st minute when Marco Parolo scored his second goal of the night.
