On the eve of the match with Zenit, Simone Inzaghi spoke at a press conference at the Formello Sports Centre:
"We know that tomorrow's match will be an important one, passing the round is our goal. In the first three games we did well, now we will have the exam against a strong team that has recovered important players. We will have to do a quality test, recovering the energy lost on Saturday in Crotone. The group is open, we have to think only about beating Zenit, without thinking about the result of the other match. The approach will be fundamental.
For tomorrow I know I'll have Luiz Felipe, he hasn't played for a few days, I'll evaluate him between today and tomorrow. Strakosha is also on the road to recovery. Luis Alberto? He has shown in these years his importance, he has given a great response on the field for what he has done. In these years we have had continuous growth, bringing home important trophies. I am sorry that these guys are often underestimated, we know that with the full roster we are very competitive. Peruzzi? In every family there are discussions, I hope that everything will be resolved".
