Lazio lifted the Coppa Italia for the seventh time on Wednesday after late goals from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Joaquin Correa guided them to a 2-0 final win over Atalanta on a night in Rome dogged by fan violence.

Milinkovic-Savic's fine header set Lazio on their way with eight minutes left at the Stadio Olimpico, seconds after coming on as a substitute, before Correa sealed victory in the closing moments of the match. 

The victory books Lazio a ticket to next season's Europa League, much-needed for Simone Inzaghi's side as they are eighth in Serie A, four points off the European berths with two games left to play.

“We really wanted this Cup,” said Inzaghi.

“It’s a great satisfaction, we deserve it because we’ve come a long way.”

However his side's win was marred by clashes outside the stadium between Lazio's hardcore ‘ultra’ supporters and police before the game.

Fans threw projectiles at officers as a police car was burnt near the Ponte Milvio bridge not far from the Stadio Olimpico.

According to Italian media, two policemen were injured, one in an ear by a projectile, and five fans were arrested. (SuperSport)
