Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic provided for one of his most well-rounded performances of the season against Parma. The Serbian talent showcased on why he is among the stout workhorse midfielders in the league as he recorded three tackles, three interceptions, two blocked shots and one assist.
The Lazio midfielder was essentially doing his part both on and off the ball while also helping to preserve the clean sheet for the side.
This was an important victory for Lazio and one that Milinkovic-Savic recognizes that the side needed after it got off to a sluggish start in league play. The Serbian provided his input on the fixture, with comments relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.
Another victory was needed because we lost so many points and now we will try to win every game. We have always collapsed in the second half. We must grow in mentality and try to close the games as soon as possible.
Next up for Lazio is the Rome Derby. A win in this fixture could continue to shift the momentum in the Biancocelesti’s favor, which could go a long way in its possible late push to a top-four place in the league standings.
