A heavy and important victory, the three points from Lazio in Turin now make a 4 point advantage over Inter. It was a very eventful game for Lazio, with many chances: it could have easily been 3-0 or more over Torino, however it finished with a goal from the ‘Man of The Match’, Serbian Midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. It was reported today that Tottenham was ready to prepare a bid for him, and he did not fail to impress showing his value.
Simone Inzaghi spoke after the game with Premium and had only positive things to say about the team, complimenting them:
“I’m happy with the performance, of how Caicedo entered the game. Being the reserve for Immobile is not easy and having a player like him is a fortune.
He is an exemplary professional and has allowed us to win together with others.”
“Immobile and Radu? They will be investigated, they do not look like two major injuries: we’ll see throughout the week. There is a feeling that Ciro can finish the season here, but I am confident for him and for Radu, hoping that they can still help us.”
“Milinkovic? He was very good just as everyone else, the group is there. I am confident for the future with such a group. There is still so much to battle for as we are missing 3 games. We only look at ourselves, and I can only affect my team. We knew we were facing a good Turin, we gave our all and maybe we deserved a wider result.”
“Lucas Leiva? He is a great champion, it is not by chance he has been at Liverpool for 10 years. He’s a serious guy, available and very important to us. He’s having a great season.”
“A period of form? The luck was having the derby immediately after the Salzburg loss – we reloaded and made 4 wins in a row. Now we have a very difficult challenge with Atalanta next week”.
