The Lazio Primavera team played the final match of the group stage against Club Guarani from Paraguay today.

A victory would make Lazio group winners, and a draw would secure 2nd place. With a loss Lazio could get knocked out if Palermo could beat Sassuolo.

After 19 minutes Lazio took the lead with a goal from 18 year old defender Emiliano Ilari. The second goal did not come until the 80th minute when Gonzalo Barreto made it 2-0. The club from Paraguay made it exciting again when they scored just 1 minute later. But it was Lazio who got the last goal when Antonio Rozzi made it 3-1 in the 95th minute. The young striker travelled to Toscana to join up with the Primavera team after sitting on the bench for the first team against Cesena and will surely be an important player for Alberto Bollini in the upcoming matches.

LAZIO (4-4-2): Berardi; Ilari, Sbraga, Vilkatis, Serpieri; Vivacqua (64' Barreto), Zampa, Cataldi (91' Emmanuel), Cilfone;Tira, Rozzi (Mosciati, De Francesco, Dene, Fagioli, Marin, Salustri, Monteforte)

The team now has three days of rest before the 1/8th finals. The opponent is Nordsjaelland from Denmark, who finished 2nd in their group behind Juventus.
