Lazio has gone through a rough patch over the opening half of the Serie A season and for Italian journalist Stefano Orsini, he is raising the alarm with the team’s play.

The Biancocelesti currently sits at eighth-place in the league standings as it has struggled to come away with wins against top teams in the league, including Juventus. Simone Inzaghi’s side has been criticized for not only its notable defensive issues but also for how the team is losing a step with its attacking production. Orsini believes that the team’s concerns are rooted in the lack of a team identity, and he spoke further about this matter in comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

A complicated championship, both the offensive and the defensive phases don’t go as they should go. There is no more margin for error. We need a team to reclaim its identity. The way this team plays has changed. Luis Alberto is no longer the assist-man of last year; his assists are missing.

Just analyze the match against Milan. From 5 ‘to 16’, the absolute thrills for the festival of error, of carelessness.

Lazio will be taking on FC Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 — a tie in which Orsini is already looking forward to.

We are talking about the European champion team. We are talking about an absolute team. There is an exceptional spy whose name is Miro Klose and he can tell a lot about Lazio. It will count a lot whether or not there will be the public, but with the fans, that is a stadium that gives added value.

The tie will be held later this season.
