Lazio assistant coach Massimiliano Farris re-iterated the importance of tomorrow’s match against Napoli this afternoon.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Lazio Style Channel earlier today, Farris first spoke about the race for a top-four finish.

Tomorrow’s match against Napoli is an important test of maturity for us in terms of the current ranking, which sees us back on top after these last five consecutive victories.

It’s a direct match, it will be important to give consistency to the last results through the performance, the goal is to get points.

The Biancocelesti assistant coach, who is filling in for the absent coach Simone Inzaghi, then commented on Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli.

I don’t judge Napoli’s progress, their own numbers do. The Azzurri team went through a difficult period but then came out stronger in the position of the coach, in the quality of their players and in their game.

The opponent is certainly fearsome, it’s no coincidence that on Sunday evening we saw them put Inter in serious difficulty. In order to get points, we’ll have to be ready for battle against Napoli.

Finally, Farris spoke about the physical condition of the squad during this late stage of the season.

In today’s training session we’ll assess the minor ailments and the availability of the guys.

The management of energy is of secondary importance at the moment, there’s this game tomorrow, those who are well and have recovered from their game against Benevento will be available for it, perhaps we’ll be able to evaluate them during the game.

Those who are fit and have recovered from their exertions in Benevento will be available for selection. Now we need to focus on one game at a time.

Farris will again lead the Lazio squad in tomorrow evening’s match against Napoli, after coach Inzaghi again tested positive for Covid-19 yesterday, meaning that he’ll have to continue working remotely from home for the time- being.

It’s likely that the 45-year-old Italian coach will be available for next week’s Monday night clash against AC Milan, another key game in the race for a top-four finish.

The Roman club are currently experiencing a run of incredible form, having won their last five consecutive league outings.
