Lazio coach Inzaghi upset with Gasperini after six-goal thriller

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi was disappointed with Atalanta rival Gian Piero Gasperini after Saturday's 3-3 thriller.

The Aquile fought back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 - including two Ciro Immobile spot-kicks.

“It was a very clear match. Atalanta dominated the first half, while we dominated the second with three extraordinary scoring opportunities on top of the goals. Thomas Strakosha only made one save after the break," insisted Inzaghi in his Press conference.

Gasperini was furious in his post-match interview, claiming Immobile had 'dived' for both penalties.

“I admire him as a colleague. I listen to his words, but I do not accept them, because the two penalties are clear. We lost the Champions League place twice due to refereeing incidents, so in this sport you have to accept situations and especially today, when they were very clear.

“I am disappointed he decided to say these things about Immobile, as there was clear contact."
