Sarri Needs to Resolve Lazio’s Defensive Issues, Barely Better Than Last Season

Lazio have conceded 12 goals in the first seven league games so far this season, one less than after seven games last season.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti conceded 13 goals in the opening seven games of the 2020/21 Serie A season under previous coach Simone Inzaghi.

This trend highlights how the Lazio squad start the season incredibly sloppily and this hasn’t been shaken under new coach Maurizio Sarri.

The players need to adapt to the movements and defensive tactics of Sarri and only time will tell how well the squad achieve this, but for now, things have started slowly.

Lazio currently have 11 points in the league table, the same amount they had under Inzaghi last season after seven games.

Sarri is working closely with the Biancocelesti players that have remained in Formello this international break, hoping to prepare for the next match against Inzaghi’s Inter in the best possible way.
