Giancarlo Marocchi: “Correa and Immobile can not play together…”
Lazio faltered against Chievo, in a depressing afternoon in Rome for Simone Inzaghi’s men. At this point, any dropped points could mean losing out on the Champions League next season, and the Biancocelesti were unable to assert their territorial and qualitative supremacy against the Flying Donkeys, becoming sterile and ineffective in front of goal. Giancarlo Marocchi, former midfielder of Juventus and Bologna, gave his thoughts on the offense problem of Lazio. Here are his words to Sky Sports.
I’m one of those who was in favour of backing up Luis Alberto and letting Correa play, but what I understand now is that Immobile and Correa can not play together. Last year Lazio was wonderful, they scored with a crazy simplicity, they just needed two passes to get a goal. Correa runs for how good he is, he’s a great ball carrier, while Immobile is one who wants the ball deep down, so if Tucu doesn’t pass it to him it’s useless. So the Biancocelesti attack with many men but without being able to finish. What happened was that even if you put one of the best players on the field, like Correa, the results don’t come. Inzaghi, however, should have done something anyway, Lazio are no longer the same as they were last year.
