Filip Djordjevic strikes again as Lazio stun Viola

Serbian international Filip Djordjevic scored his fifth goal in three league games as Lazio grabbed a precious 2-0 win away to misfiring Fiorentina in Italy`s Serie A on Sunday.

Fiorentina welcomed the Biancocelesti two weeks after routing Inter Milan 3-0 at home, but were left rueing several missed chances as Stefano Pioli`s visitors moved into the top five ahead of the weekend`s remaining fixtures.

Djordjevic had scored four goals in Lazio`s previous two outings, including a hat-trick away to Palermo, and grabbed his fifth in three games in the 35th minute when he smashed Antonio Candreva`s pass under Federico Marchetti`s crossbar.

Fiorentina pressed for the equaliser but, in the dying minutes, left themselves sorely exposed at the back.

Lazio launched a counter-attack and from a three-on-one situation Candreva squared for Senad Lulic to tap home into a virtually empty net.

Lazio move up to fifth place, seven points behind leaders Juventus, who dropped two points in a 1-1 draw away to Sassuolo on Saturday and now lead title challengers Roma by just one point.
