Silvio Piola's thumping effort earned Lazio a deserved point as AC Milan's struggles at San Siro continued on Serie A week 22, back in 1935. Lazio finished 5th, and AC Milan 10th this season. This was the first season Silvio Piola joined Lazio, and he scored 21 goals from his 29 appearances this season.

Lazio booked their place in the next round of Coppa Italia with a 2-0 victory over Macerata in 1940. The same day as Oslo receives two reports from Berlin about upcoming German invasion, but no actions have been taken. Maybe, they were amazed with Annular Solar Eclipse that also happened on this day as the sun was blocked entirely out for 6 to 7 minutes by the moon with a narrow circle of brilliance around it's rim. Back to Coppa Italia, Fiorentina crowned as Coppa Italia winner this season.

Goals from Muccinelli and Burini saw Lazio beat Sampdoria on week 27 Serie A season 1956/57 in 1957. If you are interested in knowing the detail of the game; Olimpico ground was in good condition, but the sky was cloudy. Numbers of corner kicks were 9-7 in favour of Sampdoria. Lazio manager was a former English footballer born in Liverpool named Jesse Carver. Unfortunately, during this game he was on duty to England, and his assistant Enrico Radio sitting on the bench. Lazio finished 3rd, after AC Milan and Fiorentina this season.

Napoli much needed Serie A win at San Paolo denied by Giorgio Chinaglia hat-tricks on this date in 1974. This was Serie A week 24 and the game ended with 3-3 draw. Napoli and Lazio should have to compete in what is a real play-off towards the road of Scudetto. In fact, the Neapolitans are 5 points behind the blue-white at the top. Giorgio Chinaglia scored 98 goals from his 209 appearances with Lazio and lifted Scudetto trophy with his Lazio teammates this season.

7 April 1997 is the inauguration of Centro Sportivo Formello, the home of Lazio sport centre and Headquarter. The area covered 40 hectares, includes training camps, swimming pool, football fields, guesthouse, clubhouse, tennis courts, gyms and medical center. The event began around 11:40 when the owner of the Lazio, President Cragnotti, accompanied by the Director General Enrico Bendoni, visited the facilities. On 27 October 2012, Lazio called the main field of the Sports Centre in respect of the young footballer Mirko Fersini. The 17-year-old Lazio youth team player being knocked from his scooter in a road accident and spent six days in the intensive care unit. His condition never been improved, and he passed away on  12 April last year.

Delio Rossi’s men displayed a dull and goalless first half against Lecce at Olimpico in 2002. Luckily, Stefano Fiore goal on 68 minutes proved the difference as Lazio eked out a much-needed 1-0 victory in front of their 35,000 supporters, whilst more than half a million people march on the streets of Caracas protesting against the Venezuelan government.

Lazio managed to secure their eight consecutive wins with a late first half goal by Stendardo against Messina on Serie A week 31 in 2007. Lazio finished at 3rd place and qualified for UEFA Champions League this season. This was also the day when the passage of the Olympic torch through Paris was stopped after the flame was doused twice by protestors.

Lazio secured a vital win in their pursuit of Champions League football - beating fifth-placed Napoli 3-1 in an absorbing contest at the Stadio Olimpico on this date last year. A well deserved victory for Edy Reja's team, which honors to the tribute to one of the Lazio legends Giorgio Chinaglia, who passed away on previous Sunday in Florida. The game will be remembered for Lazio's second goal, an explosive bicycle kick (pictured) by Stefano Mauri that considered as one of the best goals of the season.

Three crucial matches in a week are waiting Lazio. Monday, Derby della Capitale, Thursday, Europa League Quarter Finals, and next Monday game against the leader of Serie A, Juventus. Non Mollare Mai.
