AC Milan willed its way through for three points against Lazio in Matchday 14. It was an arduous challenge for Lazio as the side had to comeback from down 2-0 in the fixture. But still, Milan was the team that notched the win thanks to a late Theo Hernandez goal.

Milan manager Stefano Pioli knew that it was going to be a difficult challenge for his side against Lazio. And it turned out to be just that. Pioli spoke about the result and credited Lazio for its showing, with comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

When you win such a difficult and complicated match against a strong team, it’s right to celebrate. We put in a tremendous effort to secure all three points.

It was my fault for Lazio being dominant in possession. However, we must give credit to them who have quality and physicality.

The Christmas has come at a pivotal time for Lazio. The Biancocelesti has had an up-and-down season so far and will surely need a break to rest and rejuvenate for the second half of the season.
