Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti highlighted the need for consistency ahead of tonight’s match against Napoli.
Speaking to gathered reporters in a press conference (via LazioNews24) yesterday, the Italian coach first discussed the importance of tonight’s match against the Biancocelesti.
Tomorrow’s match takes on a different weight because we come from these two or three results that are not what we would have liked and because ahead we have a team that is our level.
They are part of those seven properties in the condominium. What we must always do is this continuous attention and evolution, realize the football we have proposed and where we want to take it.
To work in a correct and serious way day after day without letting ourselves be influenced by the result. Even if at times the moments in a match give an abrupt turn to the course of things.
They’re a difficult opponent because here they have seen, like elsewhere, how good he is at organising team play and how good he is at keeping the team short by making a web of tight passes.
They are also doing well because of what they showed in Russia. It’s going to be a real, level game.
Napoli currently sit top of the Serie A table after the opening 13 rounds, sitting on 32 points. However, they dropped points in their last two league outings – a 3-2 loss to Inter and a 1-1 draw with Hellas Verona.
Spalletti will hope that his side return to winning ways in order to stave off the pressure of second-place AC Milan, who are tied on points with the Partenopei.
Lazio, on the other hand, sit sixth in the Serie A table with 21 points. The Biancocelesti have been inconsistent in their last five league games, winning only two of these. The other three were two losses and a draw.
