Lazio travel to France to take on Marseille tomorrow evening, as the Biancocelesti look to bounce back from embarrassment in Frankfurt, where Simone Inzaghi’s side were defeated 4-1. Ahead of the match tomorrow evening, Simone Inzaghi took questions at his usual press conference:
ON MARSEILLE: “I ‘m sure one of the most important memories of my career binds me in Marseille, it was a magical evening that I still remember with pleasure; scoring four goals in a single Champions League match is an Italian record I’ve kept since. Someone else will succeed in doing so. We hope it will be a source of inspiration. We need to make an important result against a team that has made a pharaonic market. There is the need to pick up points knowing already from the day of the draws that we had not been we must not complain, it must be a stimulus in a beautiful stadium.”
ON PLAYING 4-5-1 LIKE ERIKSSON: “I think we could do it, but we did not do much harm in these two years with this form, but of course we can always improve in football, and I think we had a great game on Sunday.”
ON MARSEILLE, THEN INTER: “We want to play them in the best way, we know that Marseille and Inter have been built for more, to win championships, we may be behind, but we have to play with Inter. Last year we lost for the difference in the direct clash. A path to growth. We have to play with our ideas and the excellent market, we hope to do better than they have whilst using bigger budgets. We strongly want to go ahead in this competition and face Marseille in the semi-final that last year we deserved before losing to Salzburg.”
ON BERISHA: “He had a light fatigue in the calf due to the fact that he got on very well on Sunday, he got compliments , he came in with the right spirit to win the games, this morning we did an important workout and finished it all. Things look positive, I’ll talk to the guy tomorrow to figure out if he will play from the star or will enter the match from the bench. If he gives me 100% safety I will decide whether to use it half-wing or more ahead.”
ON CAICEDO-IMMOBILE: “As for them, it must be said that you can use Berisha just by lifting it, I have not decided yet … There’s the Caicedo option , there’s the Berisha option next to one of them.”
ON GARCIA AND THE DERBY: “Prepared coach who has done well at Roma and is doing well at Marseille, if for him it is a derby for us it is not, our derby is with Roma, but we have respect for them, it will be a tough match.”
