Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi was overjoyed with the three points from yesterday’s 5-3 win over Benevento.
Speaking in an interview with Italian broadcaster Lazio Style Channel (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) after the game, the 33-year-old Italian defender commented on the performance.
The important thing was to win, then Ciro came back to score so we’re all happy. We can’t have these drops in concentration and risk so much. I’m not satisfied with the performance; I think everyone agrees.
We’re still happy to have won, but we regret that we compromised the game mentally. Let this be a lesson to us. Now we’re there with one game to spare, the others keep winning. It won’t be easy, nor will it be easy for the others.
The former Sassuolo man touched on the final sprint in the remaining games of the season.
Every game will be a final for the Champions League. The important thing is to get to fourth place, we must score as many points as possible to make this happen.
Football is strange, there are no certain results. We have important teams in front of us who make few mistakes. We should make even fewer mistakes.
The Biancocelesti defender spoke about the team’s loss of concentration in the win.
A drop in concentration is normal after 3-0, but it was very superficial.
It’s a reasoning that can be tolerated, it can be managed, but when there’s a goal to be scored, we have to put it in. We can’t risk a draw.
Acerbi looked ahead to Lazio’s next opponents, Napoli.
We will play in Naples, we know we are strong even if we have always struggled with them. We both want to get into the Champions League.
