A clear victory against Bologna and now a test against Lazio, a team that is not going through an excellent moment of form. Sampdoria prepares for the Stadio Olimpico clash scheduled for Saturday night – a race that the Blucerchiati manager Marco Giampaolo presents in a press conference.

“Lazio has been described by its managers as a rather engulfed Ferrari. We do not want to be their mechanic. We must only think about having a great match. Lazio has undoubtedly been a strong team for a long time, although it has changed compared to a few years ago. We have respect, but we will go there to play our game, trying to give continuity to the latest results.”

“The starting eleven? I choose differently from time to time, I trust everyone. Saponara or Ramirez? I will play one of the two, but not because the other has demerited. They are both strong and nothing prevents me from alternating them, exploiting both of them during the match. It is valid for them but also for others, as what has happened so far with Defrel and Caprari. Tavares? He is engaging. He has technique and quality, but he must adapt to Italian football.”
