Entering matchday 9, journalist Monica Bertini has talked to Radio Incontro Olympia to share her views of the current Serie A TIM situation, starting from Lazio: “The intention of Lazio was much clearer last year, this season I have understood a little less. Inzaghi is very good and it was no coincidence that he had entered Juventus’ interest in case Allegri had left.”
THE JEWELS OF LAZIO – “The expectations of Luis Alberto and Milinkovic are influenced by what was done last year. Probably we could expect good things but not great. I admire them very much and while I watched the games I was surprised. I think the qualities are there, but certain factors at a certain moment can block the explosions that will surely be there. Immobile is a great guarantee and I absolutely support Ciro for the Italian National Team. If he does well with Lazio, it will also be an incentive for Italy, which is what they need”.
THE LAZIO’S RIVALS – “Juventus improves from season to season. It never has a full stomach and this depends above all on Allegri’s great ability. Every time you look in the mirror you never see your own reflection, but a new goal to be achieved. Many claim that the championship is already over. The distance between Juventus and the others is indicative, but for the other places, I see great balance. Napoli is ahead of all, I like it a lot and I have infinite esteem for Ancelotti. Actually, I also had it for Sarri, so I congratulate them for having changed this way. I also find that Inter is an excellent team that at the beginning had to take the measures. The performance in the Champions League shows how strong Inter are. The derby will give clear indications as Milan is hard to define. The Nerazzurri does not ask for anything so it can be facilitated in the race. Roma started like last year and I still remember the criticism. I think I saw that although they are now recovering well.”
LAZIO AND MILAN IN EUROPE – “In the Europa League, Milan and Lazio could clearly show themselves. Of course, there is Chelsea who is first in Premier, but then there will be those who fall from the Champions League and the game will be very hard. It is too difficult to judge from this point of view, even more than in the Champions League “
