There is a very tense atmosphere at the Stadio Olimpico, where Lazio fans are jeering their own players ahead of the match with Salernitana.

It kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT) to open the Serie A Week 32 fixtures.

The Aquile are coming off back-to-back defeats against Juventus in the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg and bitter rivals Roma in the Derby della Capitale in Serie A.

Lazio fans made their feelings heard when the squad ran out for the warm-up, loudly jeering the players throughout the preparation.

The ultras in the Curva Nord also aimed insulting chants and banners at the squad, who they blame for a poor campaign, especially compared to securing second place last season.

A banner in the Curva Nord read: ‘You are not worthy to wear OUR shirt.’

Maurizio Sarri resigned on March 13 and Igor Tudor took over a week later, overseeing a 1-0 win over Juventus in Serie A, then those two losses.

Lazio are currently eighth in the Serie A table, nine points adrift of their rivals Roma and fifth place.

One thought on “Lazio fans protest after painful recent defeats”
  1. I’m a Lazio fan and these fans certainly do not know how to spell sportsmanship. All they do is cause trouble and put extra pressure on the players, the players know what they need to do without these ungrateful people causing more unnecessary pressure.

    I’ve said it many times, the ULTRAS & other trouble causing fans should be banned from the stadium unless they change their attitude, bring back the families and that family atmosphere that I believe football is lacking now. Families are what are important in life, not complaining about something so small.

    Many many years ago, the Derby Delle Capitale use to be a family event with both supporting sides showing respect without what the score line suggests, I’m slowly retiring from being a fan of any sport due to fan behaviour and the games authorities turning it into a money making system, introducing more and more competitions, its a real shame.

    Peace everyone, take care.
