Sarri pleased with convincing Biancocelesti win over Verona

Following Lazio’s convincing 2-0 victory over Verona, Sarri was quite pleased with his side’s display at the Stadio Olimpico. Despite a scoreless half, a brilliant header from Ciro Immobile from the second post and a magnificent low-driven strike from the Spanish midfield maestro Luis Alberto was enough for the Biancocelesti to clinch three vital points in order to keep themselves within reach of the title race.

After the significant home victory, the gaffer provided his perspective on the league fixture in an interview with DAZN Italia:

It was a tough game. Last season we collected five points after the eight Europa League games and we averaged two points per game in the other matches. In the end, our season was affected by that.

“It is difficult for everyone to play in Europe, also abroad. Bayern got a 2-2 draw against a low-table team. It is difficult and last season, we made life even more challenging for ourselves.

“I am satisfied because it was a tough game. You need patience against Verona, especially if you don’t score immediately. They made 24-25 fouls throughout the game, we made something like five.

“We won today, so I can say it: we won a game on a turf that is not worthy of the city of Rome and was even more difficult.”
