Serie A By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 12/07/2017

Lazio won their first friendly of pre-season 16-0 with Keita Balde Diao contributing six goals all in the first half.

If the Senegal international was trying to put himself in the shop window ahead of his contract expiring next summer, then he succeeded with a spectacular individual performance.

Keita already had a hat-trick within 20 minutes against local side Auronzo, adding another treble in the final five minutes before the break.

Felipe Anderson, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Luca Crecco, Alessandro Murgia, Christopher Oikonomidis and Alessandro Rossi were also on target.

Simone Palombi bagged a very late brace, though Lazio played the final 20 minutes down to 10 men after a Wallace injury.

Lazio (first half): Vargic; Bastos, Wallace, Radu; Basta, Milinkovic, Luis Alberto, Crecco, Patric; Keita, Felipe Anderson

Lazio (second half): Guerrieri (Adamonis 69); Wallace, Luiz Felipe, Crecco; Lombardi, Murgia, Mohamed, Kishna, Oikonomidis; Palombi, Rossi
