UEFA Europa League


Simone Inzaghi, Lazio's coach, spoke in the pre-match press conference ahead of the Europa League last-32 tie with Sevilla.

There’s regret for the result but not the performance. Now Genoa are behind us and we’re here to have a great game. We’ll be playing for our chances at 100 percent. The first leg was decided by a counterattack and we could’ve pulled one back through Marusic and Correa. We played better in the second half, creating a couple of chances. Tomorrow we need two goals to go in. We must play with bravery. We’ll have to be able to turn things in our favour. It didn’t happen in the first leg and against Genoa, but it has to tomorrow."

About the squad the Biancocelesti's coach said: “I have 19 players available with three goalkeepers, plus Zitelli from the Primavera team. Parolo and Luis Alberto wanted to train with the team and the former’s been called up. Milinkovic could’ve also been called up for Genoa. I’ll make a decision after muscle conditioning tomorrow. We’ve played a lot of games and there have been many muscle injuries, in addition to some blows taken by Parolo and Leiva. Caicedo a starter? Right now he has a use in my head with Immobile and Correa. Milinkovic-Savic trained well today and I’m thinking if I can play him from the start or later on.
