Lazio's Alvaro Gonzalez, Mirolsav Klose and Hernanes secured a 3-0 victory over Udinese in Serie A on Tuesday at the Stadio Olimpico where the home fans sang racist chants aimed at rivals Roma who share the stadium.
Lazio took to the field wearing a "No Racism" logo on their shirts in the aftermath of an attack in Rome on Tottenham Hotspur fans on the eve of last week's Europa League tie and anti-Semitic chanting during the game with the London team. The victory over Udinese took fifth-placed Lazio to 26 points from 14 games, six behind leaders Juventus and within two of Fiorentina and Inter Milan in third and fourth respectively.
Lazio started brightly, earning a penalty in the 11th minute when Udinese's Willians handled as he got in the way of Stefan Radu's backheel from a corner.
However, Antonio Candreva's spot kick was weak, allowing visiting goalkeeper Zeljko Brkic to save.
