Francesco Acerbi (5/10)- Lazio fans will not be overly pleased with Acerbi who left lots of holes open in the defence.
Luiz Felipe (5/10)- Similar to his defending teammate, Luiz Felipe was not on point tonight and gave the Torino attackers lots of space.
Elseid Hysaj (7/10)- The fullback was impressive tonight and ran up and down the flank to support the forwards.
Adam Marusic (6/10) – The right back could not keep up with the pace of Sanabria and lost sight of him many times.
Danillo Cataldi (5/10)- Placed today in the centre of the field it was a big responsibility for him but Cataldi couldn’t deliver.
Luis Alberto (6/10) – Alberto the number 10 for Lazio was combining well with Ciro Immobile but still needs to be quicker.
Jean Daniel Akpa Akpro (6/10)- Impressive in his dribbling skills he drew the fouls from the Torino players. However needs to improve his decision making.
Ciro Immobile (8/10)- The goalscorer for Lazio from the penalty spot in added time, Immobile was the only player who looked like scoring. Immobile was continuously getting shots at the Torino goal and finally got hoa reward.

Koffi Djidji (5/10)- The defender was on good flow tonight and continuously threaded balls for forwards who couldn’t capitalise much. However one bad decision changed the match as he conceded the penalty in added time.
Rolando Mandragora(6/10)- The defender was found lacking in his defending capacity and made some rash tackles to be booked in the first half.
