Lazio Coach Vladimir Petkovic has admitted that Saturday's match with Milan is 'very important'.
The capital club travel to San Siro to face the Rossoneri in a game which could go some way in deciding who finishes in the top three come the end of the season.
And the Bosnian boss has conceded that it will be a vital game for both teams.
“It will be a very important game,” he told a Press conference. “So of course we will try to win it.
“Currently the table says that we are in front of Milan, and we probably deserve to be two points ahead of them.
“But the Rossoneri have recovered well and are playing some great football – not only in Italy, but also in Europe.
“You have to give them great respect after getting a result like the one they got against Barcelona.
“However, I believe in my team – we can go head-to-head with Milan at San Siro.”
