Lazio see off free-falling Frosinone

Lazio won their first match since the resignation of Maurizio Sarri, with a 3-2 victory on Saturday at Frosinone, who are sinking towards relegation from Serie A.

Mattia Zaccagni's leveller seven minutes before the break and a second-half brace from Valentin Castellanos made sure that Lazio snapped a three-match league losing streak under Sarri's former assistant Giovanni Martusciello.

Sarri officially stepped down on Wednesday after a disastrous season with the Roman club which has Lazio ninth in Italy's top flight.

Italian media report that Igor Tudor will replace Sarri on a permanent basis.

Frosinone are 18th after picking up just two points from their last eight matches.

Eusebio Di Francesco's side are one point behind Empoli who are just outside the relegation zone and were beaten 1-0 by Bologna on Friday.

Lecce moved four points ahead of Frosinone with a 1-0 win at rock-bottom Salernitana in their first match under new coach Luca Gotti.

Gotti replaced Roberto D'Aversa who was sacked on Monday for headbutting Verona striker Thomas Henry in their previous fixture last weekend.
