Former Lazio defender Paolo Negro highlighted the need to avoid a draw in tonight’s match against Napoli.

Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 49-year-old Italian looked ahead to tonight’s clash.

The match against Napoli is very important, I don’t know if it will be decisive for the Champions League race but coming out with a draw could have consequences on the table.

The Biancocelesti will have to exploit their counter-attacks as Napoli will try to play their game, and it will be important for Lazio to make the most of the space.

Negro then talked about the Biancocelesti’s defense and their best players.

Acerbi is a valuable defender, he has a lot of dedication, he knows how to present himself and he’s the best in Lazio.

Radu? When you’re 35 and you’re in such good shape and playing at such a high level it just means you’re a great professional.

Luiz Felipe has important skills but he’s still a bit raw, he needs to be helped to grow defensively.
