Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi highlighted the importance of playing a good game against Bayern Munich in tomorrow’s Champions League clash.
Speaking in a press conference to gathered reporters (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 44-year-old Italian coach first spoke about the importance of the second leg.
We know how much we’ve worked to play challenges like the one tomorrow night against great teams. We’ll go there to play our game in the best possible way, before we met Bayern we had never lost.
We want to play a great game tomorrow night as well.
The Biancocelesti coach then touched on the importance of getting comfortable in the Champions League.
We have to play these games more often, the Round of 16 has been absent for more than ten years, I agree with you that we need to do it more often.
There are five top teams above us, plus Atalanta, but we want consistency.
Inzaghi discussed the performance expected in tomorrow’s clash.
We have to put in an important performance against a world champion opponent, who has managed to play very important games in recent years.
We will have to play a game of speed, aggressiveness, determination, they are very strong and deserve to have won all these titles in recent years.
The 44-year-old Italian coach spoke about the mindset the team requires.
We have to go and play an important game, in the Champions League we had three away games like Dortmund, Bruges and St Petersburg.
We collected three draws, but we definitely deserved more. Tomorrow we will find many difficulties, but we will go and play our game with determination.
Finally, Inzaghi discussed how it feels to play a match of this caliber after years of work.
We have to enjoy a night like tomorrow night to the full. I hope it can happen again, we are all ambitious.
Our path in the Champions League was very good, our goal was to get back into the Round of 16.
With the result of the first leg, we lowered our chances of progressing to the next round, but we’re going to play it in the best possible way.
