Udinese winger Ignacio Pussetto was aware of Lazio’s strengths ahead of this weekend’s match between the two sides.

Speaking in an interview with Italian newspaper Il Gazzettino (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 25-year-old Argentinian first spoke about the Biancocelesti’s 2-1 loss to Bayern Munich and if he watched.

I only saw the first half. It wasn’t a great Lazio. However, they did their job and I don’t listen to those who say the Roman team is in difficulty. Let’s not joke, they have a lot of important players and quality.

He then looked ahead to this weekend’s meeting between the two clubs.

They’ll give everything to conquer the fourth position that qualifies them to the Champions League. It’s easy to see that they’ll be at the top of their game against us and they’ll have Immobile back, who was spared in Munich for Udine.

Milinkovic-Savic, who was absent in the first leg, will also be there and everyone knows his value. In short, we’ll have to raise the bar to get a positive result.
