Lazio sporting director Igli Tare discussed the Biancocelesti’s league clash against Benevento in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN before the game.

It is important that the fans understand the moment in the difficulties. Here at Lazio, you go from the stars when qualifying for Champions League football to the stables when losing against Verona, in an instant. We need balance in our judgments.

Lazio are currently 9th in Serie A after 11 games, sitting on 17 points, four behind rivals Roma.

Benevento are down in 13th, having only won one of their last five games and sitting on 12 points.
