THE STRENGTHS OF LAZIO
"Lazio are a great team, with many players who have been playing together for many years and who, consequently, know each other very well and the results they have achieved fantastic results in recent years. We will be facing a difficult opponent, skilled in counter-attacks and with several players able to manage the ball well, but we are preparing for this challenge in the best possible way and will arrive prepared tomorrow evening. The matches are all equally important and tomorrow we will have to play an intelligent game. It will be essential to manage every type of play and situation well, from a tactical, physical and mental point of view."
"There are still several players who are unavailable. Some of them were able to train partially with the group this morning, but until tomorrow's finishing touches it will be difficult to understand who will be available for the game and who will not. Leonardo Bonucci partially returned to the group, but there is absolutely no guarantee that he will be able to play tomorrow evening, as he comes from 16 days of inactivity. Whilst, those who have not yet trained with the team are Matthijs de Ligt, who is managing the knock suffered against Verona which did not allow him to train with the post-Spezia group. Alvaro Morata is better, but he has yet to find his best condition. Arthur is feeling less pain, but we will see over the next few days how he feels and if he can help us. Unfortunately we also lost Rodrigo Bentancur and we will have to find a solution to replace him, but I am confident that whoever will be deployed on the field will give their best."
FIGHTING ON ALL FRONTS
"At this moment of the season we have to think about one match at a time. We are currently in the game on all fronts: we have reached the final of the Coppa Italia, we have the opportunity to overturn the match in the Champions League, and in Serie A, until mathematics denies us, we will fight until the end to reach our goal."
