Soccer-Lazio go top of Serie A with Bologna win

ROME, Feb 29 (Reuters) - Lazio went top of Serie A with a 2-0 win over Bologna on Saturday in one of the five weekend top-flight matches which were unaffected by the coronavirus outbreak.

Luis Alberto fired Lazio in front with a low shot from the edge of the area in the 18th minute and set up the second for Joaquin Correa three minutes later as the hosts extended their unbeaten Serie A run to 21 games.

Bologna had two goals disallowed in the second half, one for handball and then one for offside following a VAR review.

Lazio have 62 points from 26 games, two ahead of Juventus whose match at home to third-placed Inter Milan on Sunday was one of five postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Serie A had initially announced that the five games would be played behind closed doors but changed its mind earlier on Saturday because broadcasters, fans and the clubs did not want to play in empty stadiums.
