Following their impressive exploits in Saturday’s Supercoppa Italiana, Lazio are set to receive a hero’s welcome when they arrive back in Rome with their first title of the new season.
After scenes of jubilation in Rome’s Piazza del Popolo yesterday afternoon, it now seems the Biancocelesti faithful are preparing to descend on the capital’s airport as they look to demonstrate their appreciation for the club's impressive achievement.
According to the latest reports from Lazialita.it, there could be as many as four thousand fans ready and waiting as Ballardini’s men pass through the arrival gate at around 21:00 CET.
Given the fact that the majority of the city’s population is currently away on holiday in a bid to escape the intense Roman heat, the Lazio squad could well be taken by surprise when they arrive back home as Supercoppa Italiana winners.
