Immobile: ‘Lazio get EL boost’

Ciro Immobile admits the Europa League “takes away energy” from Lazio, but “it gives us positive energy when we get through”.

The Biancocelesti take on Dynamo Kiev in the first leg of their Last 16 tie tomorrow, and the striker attended the Press conference alongside Coach Simone Inzaghi.

“Do we believe we can reach the final?” Immobile considered.

“We believed in the Coppa Italia too, we did well but sadly the penalties didn’t allow us to progress [against Milan].

“The Europa League fascinates us, it takes away energy but it gives us positive energy when we get through.

“The Europa League is important, we play important matches and we want to keep going forward.”

The Aquile have lost their last two matches, to Milan and Juventus, will they be looking to bounce back tomorrow?

“Mentally we can think that we did well but didn’t get anything out of the games, but if we play like that we won’t lose many. They gave us an awareness of what we are.

“Milan are the most in-form team in the country and the moment, and Juventus are playing for the Scudetto.

“If we play like we did in the last two we’ll get plenty of satisfaction.”
