Lopez: ‘Better than against Lazio’

Cagliari Coach Diego Lopez says his side need to be even better against Benevento than they were against Lazio.

Despite conceding an injury time equaliser to Ciro Immobile in last week’s 2-2 draw with the Biancocelesti, it was a highly credible performance and result for the Sardi.

The Rossoblu are two points above the relegation zone and today face a Benevento side who already appear doomed to the drop to Serie B.

“The fight for survival is fierce and as I always say we need balance,” Lopez told his pre-match Press conference.

“Even if we had won against Lazio, we wouldn’t have changed our attitude.

“Benevento are a team who play, who always look to get a result. They have changed a lot compared to the first half of the season.

“As always, we need to think of ourselves. It’s a very important match.

“We need to be focused, give our best and give a performance better than the one against Lazio.”
