This shirt was worn by Ivan De La Pena during the Serie A game between Lazio and Parma which took place in Roma, “Stadio Olimpico”, on May 23rd 1999 that was the last game of the season. Lazio defeated Parma 2-1 but it was not enough to win the Serie A title over A.C.Milan. Milan peaked late during the season, while Lazio had a barren spell, which enabled Milan to make up the deficit. Lazio finally squandered the title lead in the penultimate match of the season, where it had to settle for a draw against Fiorentina away from home. This shirt, together with other player’s ones, was auctioned after the game directly by S.S.Lazio that also “certified” it as match worn adding an extra inside tag with match details printed on. De la Peña joined Lazio in the summer of 1998. He fell out of favour at F.C. Barcelona after the arrival of the Dutch coach, Louis van Gaal, and he was consequently transferred to S.S. Lazio, along with Fernando Couto. However, he failed to establish himself in Serie A and was loaned to Olympique de Marseille during the 1999–00 season.
