On the last match day, Lazio proved that they were worthy of the first place by winning against second-ranked Sampdoria. Sampdoria tried not to leave room deep for Rossi, but the shallow defence created spaces that Rossi skilfully exploited.
Anticipating the ball, he draws the man marking him off the line. At that point, the triangle could close toward the centre, which would be more logical, but the first, imprecise control, forces him to look for another solution. At that point, he turns toward the right wing, where the fullback has to overlap, to then move away from the penalty area.
