Lazio 4, Internazionale 3
ROME (AP) _ Italian League champion Lazio beat Internazionale of Milan 4-3 to win the Italian SuperCup behind two goals from offseason signing Claudio Lopez on Friday.
It’s Lazio’s fourth title in the past year, including the Italian Cup and the European SuperCup.
Lopez knocked in two low, left-footed shots within six minutes in the first half to put the hosts up for good.
``It was fantastic to score here, with the fans, and this stadium,″ the Argentine striker said.
Internazionale went ahead three minutes into the game, when Irish forward Robbie Keane lobbed a shot over charging goalkeeper Angelo Peruzzi, who moved from Inter to Lazio over the summer.
Lopez tied the score in the 33rd minute, and made it 2-1 in the 39th off an assist from countryman Hernan Crespo.
Sinisa Mihajlovic hit a penalty kick and Dejan Stankovic put in Juan Sebastian Veron’s pass in the second half for Lazio, while Spanish midfielder Francisco Farinos and Brazil’s Vampetta scored Internazionale’s other goals.
