MILAN (AP) — Lazio fought back from a goal down to beat Fiorentina 2-1 in Serie A on Saturday and keep its fading title hopes alive.
Luis Alberto struck seven minutes from time to cut the gap to league leader Juventus back to four points.
Ciro Immobile converted a penalty to cancel out Franck Ribéry’s opener for Fiorentina.
Lazio’s hopes of claiming a first league title since 2000 took a hit midweek when its 21-match unbeaten run ended with a defeat at Atalanta in its first match back following the hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.
And it seemed as if it was going to slide further when Ribéry curled in the opener following a magnificent solo run in the 25th minute.
