Tomorrow at 1:00 pm EST, the make-up match between Lazio and Udinese will finally occur at the Stadio Olimpico. With a victory, Udinese will have a total of 35 points, moving to 13th spot in the Serie A TIM alongside Parma and Spal. The Bianconeri’s Croatian manager, Igor Tudor, spoke ahead of the important match.
I always ask my team to give everything they have. Tomorrow, we will face a team fighting for the Champions League who plays a type of football I admire. We are coming off a great performance against Roma, it’s unfortunate we lost, but we have to take the field with the desire to score goals. There was a performance against Roma, we just came away with no points; the goal scored by the Giallorossi was the result of a temporary misunderstanding of the defense – a single detail that decided the game. These details are important and sometimes you can even make mistakes, but the important thing is to learn from the mistakes made. Therefore we learn and look forward to the future with confidence.There will be some changes to the starting eleven, both tomorrow, and Saturday against Sassuolo. But we must consider this game as an opportunity, an extra bonus that we have to stretch on other salvation contenders. Ignacio Pussetto? He will be unavailable: he suffered an injury that made us lean towards making him rest for tomorrow’s game, in order to be able to have him available again for the Sassuolo match.
