Fiorentina Coach Italiano: ‘Great Test Against Lazio Awaits Us’

Vincenzo Italiano was ready for a tough clash against Lazio as his Fiorentina side shake off their slow start to the season.

La Viola currently sit 13th in the Serie A table, having only picked up two wins from their opening eight outings. It’s been a frustrating start for Italiano and his squad, but their 3-0 away win over Hearts in the Europa Conference League allowed them to rediscover some confidence. Fiorentina are now hungry to climb up the league table in the run up to the World Cup break next month.

Speaking to Fiorentina’s media outlets (via LazioNews24), Italiano first discussed the health of his squad heading into the match.

The team is well, we’re in good shape. We have to recover some lagging players and some who don’t have the 90 minutes in them, but these are all individual situations. 

The squad in general is well, also from the point of view of dynamism. Then we must continue to grow and improve.

He gave his thoughts on tomorrow’s opponents Lazio and what he told his squad.

The current Lazio is a team that is aware of its strength and plays well. It knows how to defend, how to attack and how to push up the pitch. 

I’ve already spoken about this with the guys, tomorrow we have to give our all and keep our antennae straight. A great test awaits us.

Lazio won both their meetings with Italiano’s Fiorentina last season, picking up a 1-0 win at home and a 3-0 win in Florence.
