After obtaining victory against Inter at the San Siro in an excellent performance, Lazio have picked up just one point of a possible six against two sides from the bottom half of the table – the first away to Spal last week (in a 1-0 loss), and today at home against Sassuolo (in a 2-2 draw).  The Biancocelesti now sit in the seventh spot with 49 points, three points Milan and Atalanta for a top four position, and two points out of a European spot in general. Following this match at the Stadio Olimpico, Simone Inzaghi spoke.

The performance was there, we were good at giving nothing to Sassuolo. We will review the two goals we conceded – they had two chances and scored off them both; the shots were eight to one. Today De Zerbi’s side struggled because we played well.

We tied the match in the 94′; with victory in extra-time we would be fourth and for this, we must look to the future with confidence. The downside is the two goals conceded in this match… We had to be more patient after the advantage.

The next match will be very important. The Champions League battle involves all the teams – after winning against Inter we have only obtained one point and for this, we are very sorry.

Immobile played an excellent match, with a goal and an assist. It is normal that he was expected to score that chance he had, but he is always involved…
