Lazio to be crowned Serie A Champions...100 years after losing out

the Italian club never got to play the final against Genoa during the 1914-15 season

Lazio are about to be awarded with the third Scudetto in the history of the club.

The 1914-15 Italian title was awarded to Genoa on the grossly unfair assumption that they were the better side. Lazio had finished runners-up in the previous two seasons and felt as though they had the chance to right those wrongs before WWI happened.

The Italian Football Federation set up a commission to investigate the outcome of the season in question following a petition that was set up by fans of the club, who feel they were robbed of the title.

When Genoa and Lazio's final game of the season was called off because Italy were entering World War One, Genoa were awarded the title and now Lazio might be ready to share the title in an outcome that seems only fair.

"It is a legitimate Scudetto," said Lazio president Claudio Lotito via the BBC.

"It was taken away from us by the war," he continued.

Genoa were awarded the title because it was generally believed that they had the better squad. Lazio, however, were not happy with that assumption and could be set to share the title after 30,000 supporters of the club signed the petition.

The decision will be made by the Italian Football Federation on August 4th.
