Seria A: Immobile hat-trick as Lazio thrash Spezia 6-1, Atalanta draw Bologna

Ciro Immobile fired Lazio to two wins from two in Serie A with a hat-trick in a 6-1 hammering of Spezia on Saturday, while Atalanta laboured to a goalless draw with Bologna.

The 31-year-old then missed a penalty in first half stoppage-time only to nod home completely unmarked from the subsequent corner to complete his treble. Felipe Anderson, Elseid Hysaj and Luis Alberto — who also created three of the goals — added three more stylish strikes after the break as Lazio put on a show of passing football that b...
