Inter Milan innovator Marcelo Brozovic attempts his bizarre sliding free-kick block AGAIN in Serie A win at Lazio
- Inter Milan won 3-0 at Lazio to move up to second place in the Serie A table
- Marcelo Brozovic scored but also caught the eye while defending a free-kick
- The midfielder slid onto the floor behind the wall to prevent a possible low strike
Marcelo Brozovic earned widespread praise earlier this month when he blocked a low Luis Suarez free-kick by sliding onto the floor behind Inter Milan’s defensive wall.
The innovative Inter Milan midfielder tried to repeat his party trick in Sunday’s 3-0 win at Lazio when defending a Danilo Cataldi set-piece.
But he didn’t need to make a block on his occasion as the Italian’s effort deflected wide off a team-mate.

Brozovic’s spectacular effort was unnecessary on this occasion as Cataldi’s free-kick was poor
Brozovic had earlier scored from long range to put Inter in firm control of the Serie A match.
His goal, struck sweetly with his left foot, came either side of a Mauro Icardi double.
Inter’s win moved them up to second in the Serie A table, ahead of Napoli who drew 1-1 with Roma.
Brozovic has now scored twice this season — both in away victories, after netting the winner at Sampdoria last month.
