Lazio has done well in the UEFA Champions League competition as they qualified for the Round of 16. However, domestically, it’s a struggle as they currently sit in ninth place with 18 points in Serie A, six points outside of fourth place, which would ensure them another return to Europe’s top competition after a near 12 year hiatus.
Before their fixture against Napoli, Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi discussed with the media. Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi relayed his comments on whether his squad can bounce back and find their way back into top-four consideration.
Definitely yes, we knew that we would probably have difficulties with the Champions League and with close matches. We had additional problems, we had important men outside including Luiz Felipe, Immobile, Lazzari, Leiva, Milinkovic and many others. Now many players have returned. We have closed the European path well, the only concentration is now in Serie A. We still have time to have our say.
