- Felipe Anderson (14')
- Toma Basic (90'+2')
Goals by striker Felipe Anderson and midfielder Toma Basic earned Lazio a 2-0 home win over Sassuolo in Serie A on Wednesday, sending Maurizio Sarri's side back to second place and delaying runaway leaders Napoli's title celebrations.
Lazio were under pressure following Juventus' 2-1 victory over Lecce earlier but are back above them with a one-point lead on 64. A draw or a loss against Sassuolo would have given Napoli an unassailable lead before their match at Udinese on Thursday.
There was confusion after eight minutes when Ciro Immobile was first awarded a goal after a lengthy VAR check, only for it to be disallowed moments later.
At the end of the first half, Davide Frattesi hit the crossbar from a tight angle, denying Sassuolo an equaliser.
The result was put beyond doubt by substitute Basic when he tapped home a cross two minutes into stoppage time.
Inter Milan were ruthless at Hellas Verona, causing the hosts to concede more than five goals at home for the first time in Serie A with a 6-0 victory that included two goals from both Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martínez. Inter are fourth on 60 points.
By cancelling out Stephan El Shaarawy's opener with a stunning Luca Caldirola volley, Monza dented AS Roma's push for a top-four finish with a 1-1 draw at home. Jose Mourinho's side are outside the European qualifying places in seventh with 58 points.
AC Milan stumbled against relegation-threatened Cremonese at home. David Okereke gave the visitors the lead before Junior Messias equalised with a free-kick three minutes into stoppage time, ending the match 1-1. Stefano Pioli's side are sixth in the standings on 58 points.
