Olympique de Marseille midfielder Matteo Guendouzi highlighted the team’s determination ahead of the match against Lazio.

Speaking in an interview (via LazioNews24) after the French side’s 4-1 win over Lorient, the 22-year-old French midfielder looked ahead to Thursday’s Europa League clash against the Biancocelesti.

Lazio won this game against Inter, we only have two points with two draws but on Thursday we want to go to Rome for the three points. 

We are focused on this game before thinking about the one against PSG. We are serious about the three points in Rome, this is an important game. 

We want to win, if we play like we did today we have a chance.
