Guerino Gottardi (born 18 December 1970 in Berne) is a retired Swiss-Italian football player. After joining Lazio in 1995 from Neuchatel Xamax,[1] Gottardi was often used as a "supersub" and was instrumental in Lazio's 1998 Coppa Italia victory. With Lazio losing 2-0 on aggregate, Gottardi came off the bench to win a penalty, and then score before Alessandro Nesta's winner gave Lazio a 3-2 aggregate victory over A.C. Milan. Gottardi can also be remembered for an outstanding performance against Roma when he scored in the final minute of their second leg Coppa Italia clash, giving Lazio their third consecutive win against their arch rivals in the 1998/99 season.
