Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri has decided to give the squad 48 hours rest following their 2-0 loss to Bologna yesterday.
As reported by Italian media outlet LazioNews24 last night, the 62-year-old Italian coach has given the players a two-day break from training after a lethargic and slow loss to the Rossoblu at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara yesterday afternoon.
The Lazio squad came into the match against Bologna, scheduled for 12:30 pm local time Sunday, tired after having beaten Lokomotiv Moscow 2-0 on Thursday evening, meaning there were less than 72 hours of rest in between the matches.
This fatigue was visible on the pitch, with the Biancocelesti players looking heavy and lethargic as they struggled to match Bologna’s intensity.
The Lazio squad will resume training in Formello on Wednesday, allowing them to have a short rest before working hard again on the training pitch.
