Following I Biancocelesti’s solid 1-0 victory over Monza at the Stadio Olimpico, Lazio boss Sarri provided his perspective of the match.
It was the rising star Luka Romero who rose to the occasion as he capitalized on a loose ball within the box following a rebound from Spaniard Pedro’s shot on the keeper.
The super-sub’s finish within the 69th minute was enough to seal all three points and leap the capital club into second place with a total of 30 points, only eight points adrift from the league-leaders Napoli.
After a solid defensive display where they managed to seal their ninth clean sheet of the season, Sarri spoke about his view on Lazio’s display this evening, as relayed by Tuttomercatoweb:
We struggled for half an hour. Fatigue from a tactical point of view and from a mental point of view. Then luckily we grew up and the second half we did it at excellent levels. It was a very dangerous match between Roma and Juve, for us it was the sixth in eighteen days. It is madness, however, the Assocalciatori and Assoallenatori are silent so it means that they are good for everyone “.
Real estate wanted to enter first?
“I also wanted to stay 3-0. Then there are some things you have to think about. The course of the game led us to have a free slot half an hour from the end and I don’t burn a slot with twenty minutes to go. because it would be madness. So he had to settle for a few minutes
Did you expect to get to this point in the second-placed championship?
“Second in the current standings I don’t think it has any kind of meaning. The current league has one leaders and six teams within three points. With 24 games to play it seems to me that the standings have no meaning. The good thing is that we hold on in direct clashes and in this type of matches we seem more reliable than last year “.
The entry of Basic compared to Luis Alberto?
“Because it seemed like a moment of the match where we needed, more than the feet, a burst of energy. It is in a positive moment and we thought about doing this.”
