Lazio Defender Patric Sent Off For Biting Guilo Donati
By Mike Parrott
Lazio Defender Patric has been sent off tonight for biting an opposition player. Lecce's Guilo Donati was the victim of the bite with VAR sending the Lazio player off promptly.
Biting has happened before in football, but this is the first time in a while that Luis Suarez wasn't involved.
Lazio defender Patric, has just been sent off for biting Lecce player Guilo Donati after a confrontation in stoppage time.

Lazio went on to lose the game 2-1, with the Rome-based team slowly dropping more points and are no longer at the top of Serie A.

The Scudetto chasers were seven points behind Juventus before a ball was kicked and it now seems all but impossible that the Rome-based outfit will catch Maurizio Sarri's side.
But the craziest element of the game wasn't the result, far from it.

Juventus currently see themselves at the top of Serie A with a seven point lead over Lazio with a game in-hand. The Turin team could go on to win another League within four games if they can capitalise on the points dropped.
