Lazio rain on Trabzonspor parade

Trabzonspor AŞ 3-3 SS Lazio
Substitute Sergio Floccari crashed the party in Group J, striking twice in two minutes to deny Trabzonspor a second successive win.

Substitute Sergio Floccari hit two goals in as many minutes for SS Lazio as they whipped the rug out from under Trabzonspor AŞ in UEFA Europa League Group J.

Trailing 3-1 with six minutes left, the visitors looked destined for defeat, but Floccari beat Onur Kıvrak with a header and a cool finish in the space of two minutes to rescue a share of the points amid incessant rain on the shores of the Black Sea. The result leaves the sides level on four points at the top of the section.

A quick break spurred Trabzonspor to take the lead on 12 minutes, Paulo Henrique feeding Yusuf Erdoğan, who sped in to angle a neat shot across Federico Marchetti. Adrian Mierzejewski then sparkled in the rain soon afterwards, showing splendid poise to send a loose ball from outside the box dipping under the Lazio goalkeeper's crossbar.

Lazio gained a footing in the match when Brayan Perea's ball invited Ogenyi Onazi to dart into the box and clip past the onrushing Onur. Hernanes subsequently struck the outside of a Trabzonspor post, but Paulo Henrique made it 3-1 ten minutes before the interval, spinning into the box to collect Mierzejewski's pass before beating Marchetti with a firm shot.

That left Lazio with everything to do after the break, but they showed no lack of willing, Hernanes, Felipe Anderson and Lorik Cana all testing Onur. Alanzinho fluffed a chance to kill off the game for Trabzonspor, firing straight at Marchetti with the goal gaping, and that was to prove costly as Floccari first got on the end of a Keita Baldé corner to make it 3-2 before exchanging passes with Paulo Henrique and equalising.
