“We must get consistent, because some of the teams above us are speeding up and we have to keep up the pace,” Tare told Mediaset Premium.
“We play our best football at home, but on our travels struggle to express the same style of play.
“This encounter with Milan is fundamental. Milan are coming off three positive results, but we have to win and get the best possible preparation for the derby.
“Lazio’s issue at the moment is finding consistency between home and away results. It’s true we’ve had a lot of injuries, but it is a big squad this season.
“We must believe in ourselves so we can compete with everyone.”
