Lazio came away with a 1-0 victory over Cagliari Calcio courtesy of a goal from Ciro Immobile as the Biancocelesti walk away with three points and now sit in fifth place with 40 points. 

After the match, Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi spoke to the media, where Corriere dello Sport relayed his comments. One of the topics that the Italian tactician touched on was his squad’s defending. 

Considering the weather elements played a role, the side that took advantage of limited scoring chances would come away with the win. Inzaghi highlighted the squad’s improvements on defense since they didn’t allow Cagliari to capitalize on the limited scoring opportunities. 

In defense, we have improved due to our positioning, closing the gaps.

With this damned disease [Covid-19], things have changed and have been difficult.

This year, we have dropped points. But this was not only our fault; it was also due to external factors.

However, we are on the right track once again.

With Lazio keeping their opponent at bay, Ciro Immobile took advantage of a broken play to score the fixture’s lone goal. Lazio will need to bring this defending to the San Siro along with their scoring boots as they’ll need to come away with three points against Inter Milan to try and jump into the top four.
