Spezia coach Vincenzo Italiano highlighted the quality individuals in the Lazio squad ahead of tomorrow’s Serie A clash against the Biancocelesti.

Speaking to gathered reporters in a press conference (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 43-year-old Italian first spoke about the preparations for tomorrow’s match.

We’re back on the pitch after the break. We got all the players back between yesterday and today.

In two training sessions we’ve tried to prepare for this very difficult away match against one of the strongest teams in the league and against a team that in the first leg put us in difficulty under some aspects that we’ve tried to take care of and we hope not to make those mistakes tomorrow.

It’s a difficult game, it opens the league with ten important challenges ahead. Let’s hope we’ll be there.

He commented on the physical condition of the players who were away with their respective national teams.

Physically they’re all doing well. I’m happy for what they’ve done, for their experiences.

There’s those who have played more and those who have played less, but to be in the national team is always a great satisfaction.

I think they’re all doing well mentally and I hope this will give everyone an extra boost in the final rush.

Finally, Italiano spoke about the strengths and qualities of the Biancocelesti squad ahead of tomorrow’s fixture.

We think as we have always done one game at a time. All games for Spezia are difficult and we have to prepare well one at a time.

We’re focusing on this very strong opponent who’s made up of world-class players. Players who have quality and who at any time can decide the fate of the game.

We’re thinking about this commitment and then from next week we will think about the others.
