Looked insecure until about the hour mark, having went unpunished after giving up a couple of rebounds and flapping at shots. However, he settled in the second-half.
The left-back put in a fairly average display and struggled in the early stages against Lichtsteiner.
Earned one booking for a professional foul on Alvaro Gonzalez, but otherwise was a rock at the back and came across to make a fantastic acrobatic clearance on 19 minutes.
Was caught out of position once or twice and had to resort to a dangerous foul just outside the area after being turned by Floccari too easily on the right side. Luckily for him, his team were not punished.
The full-back had little trouble keeping the ineffective Giuseppe Sculli, though he rarely got forward to offer any support to his team-mates.
A step down from his performance against Inter, the talented player failed to get his foot on the ball on a consistent basis.
Struggled to have any impact in the midfield and was effectively made little contribution for the duration of the match.
The red-haired midfielder was dominated in the first 45 minutes, but improved dramatically in the second-half and added drive and determination in the midfield.
Set up the only goal with a fantastic ball over the top of the defence and always looked to try and pick apart the Lazio backline.
The Brazilian forward should have opened the scoring after just four minutes, but he placed his header wide of goal.
Deprived of service for long periods, the lanky striker did well to slip the ball under goalkeeper Berni, leading to the winner.
Muslera's replacement was hardly tested at all during the match, only conceding an own goal from Andre Dias over the course of the 90 minute at the Sant' Elia.
The veteran stabalised the defence, putting all his experience to good use.
The Swiss international was unstoppable in the opening 30 minutes, getting forward with excellent dribbling and control while also providing a crucial block against Cossu. Faded dramatically in the second-half.
The left-back has been one of Lazio's best players this season, but he let Cossu and company get in behind him a few times.
Shockingly ended up deflecting the ball into his own net when it looked he would clear Acquafresca's shot quite easily. A mistake that cost his team any points.
Matuzalem provided organisation to the Lazio midfield, though he failed to inspire any true openings for his side.
The Uruguayan winger hit one volley over the top of the crossbar in a promising position and attempted some neat link-up play. However, inconsistent play remains his downfall.
Showed plenty of determination after his side went behind and tested Agazzi with a stunning long-range strike on 57 minutes.
Always willing to provide an option for his side, the Brazilian maestro couldn't carve out a goal for his team on this occasion, despite a couple of dangerous set-pieces.
The former Genoa striker was truly invisible besides winning one dangerous freekick midway through the first-half. Unsurprisingly replaced by Floccari.
The youngster has come up with some pivotal strikes for Lazio recently, but the Cagliari defence kept him under wraps on Sunday.

Did a fine job adding some steel to the midfield as the Isolani looked to hold the lead.
Was active in attack after coming off the bench, but certainly lacks the finesse and technique of a top player, spurning a couple of good opportunities.

Once again, the Argentine striker failed to deliver and did little to prove he deserves a starting spot.
Was an improvement over Sculli and his turn past Canini nearly carved out the opening Lazio were looking for. His touches were often linked with positive moves for his side.
