Lazovic scored a goal against Red Star's rival Partizan, which Red Star won 2–0. That momentum led the Red Star to win the 2012 Serbian Cup Finals. 

Although the club suffered some internal feuds and instability, Lazovic still went on to play in the club. In an unfortunate turn of events, Lazovic was benched due to a knee injury in a match against Partizan.

Lazovic would go on to sign a multi-year contract with Genoa. Lazovic scored his first goal in the club on December 16, 2016. The match was only 62 minutes long as it was a continuation match. The previous game was abandoned due to an unusual hailstorm. His team was also named the team of the week in the series A league he played in. Later after his contract expired, Lazovic signed a contract with Hellas Verona, where he currently plays.

His second loss was against InterMilan, going 5-0 in 2018 playing for Genoa. Although there were games where his team went 5-0, these two were devastating, for he played the full 90 minutes.

The focus was that Verona sought a player from Marseille, Kevin Strootman. Kevin Strootman was on loan for two seasons for Genoa and was unwilling to give up his role as a midfielder with high pay. 


As the negotiation issues proceeded, the transfer of Lazovic's had to wait. Kevin Strootman is unwilling to give up his income of more than 6 million dollars, holding back the transfer of Lazovic.
