Lazio win at Frosinone as post-Sarri era begins

Taty Castellanos of SS Lazio celebrates after scoring second goal during the Serie A TIM match between Frosinone Calcio and SS Lazio at Stadio Benito Stirpe on March 16, 2024 in Frosinone, Italy. 

Substitute Taty Castellanos has scored twice in Lazio's 3-2 win at relegation-threatened Frosinone in what is set to be interim coach Giovanni Martusciello's only match in charge of the capital club.

Pol Lirola gave Frosinone the lead before Mattia Zaccagni leveled shortly before halftime.

Castellanos scored twice after the break but Walid Cheddira reduced the deficit to set up a nervy final 20 minutes for ninth-placed Lazio.

Martusciello, former coach Maurizio Sarri's longtime assistant, was named caretaker on Wednesday after Sarri resigned.

But Italian media reports an agreement has already been reached with Igor Tudor to take over from Monday.

Tudor has previously coached Udinese and Hellas Verona in Serie A and led Marseille to third place in the French league last season.

Lecce had the ideal debut under new coach Luca Gotti, winning 1-0 at bottom club Salernitana to snap a five-match winless run and move four points clear of the relegation zone.

Gotti was appointed on Wednesday, two days after Roberto D'Aversa was fired for headbutting an opposing player.

Salernitana was the better team for much of the match but Lecce took the lead in the 17th minute when defender Norbert Gyomber deflected the ball into his own net.

It was only the second time Lecce had troubled the scorers since February 2 - with their previous strike also an own goal.

Salernitana remain 11 points from safety and seemingly doomed for Serie B.

Daniel Maldini emulated his father Paolo by scoring against a Cagliari side coached by Claudio Ranieri.

A stunning free kick four minutes from halftime was enough to secure a 1-0 win for Monza and left Cagliari two points above the drop zone.

The 22-year-old Maldini, who joined Monza on loan from AC Milan in January, has scored three goals in his last four matches.

His father Paolo is a former Milan and Italy captain and defender.

One of his 29 Serie A goals came against Cagliari in 1991 - when the Sardinian team was previously coached by Ranieri.

Udinese are only three points above the relegation zone after losing 2-0 at home to Torino.
