Udinese Vs. Lazio: Udinese Down To Ten Men But Mauro Zarate Misses Resulting Penalty

Lazio have missed their chance to get back in the match as Mauro Zárate attempts a penalty that can only be described as "horrible." Granted, Samir Handanovic is the best goalkeeper in Serie A at saving penalties-- according to Opta, the Slovenian has saved his 6 penalties (out of 8 faced) this season, at least three more than any other GK--but that doesn't explain why Zárate shot the ball directly at the keeper.

Although Lazio lost their chance to grab one back, they remain in a strange position for the final twenty minutes of the match: this time, it's the Biancocelesti who have the man advantage. Gabriele Angella was sent off for tripping Tommaso Rocchi approximately 60 seconds after he set foot on the pitch, replacing Sergio Floccari. In response, Udinese have pulled both Alexis Sanchez and Antonio Di Natale, replacing them with Bernardo Corradi and Joel Ekstrand, prepared to hunker down and defend their 2-0 lead.
