D'Aversa: 'Parma were too passive'

Parma Coach Roberto D’Aversa “expected a stronger fightback” in the 2-0 defeat to Lazio, a third loss in four games.

Ciro Immobile and Adam Marusic scored either side of the break at the Stadio Olimpico this evening.

“Compared to last weekend, it was a worse performance, even if the result ultimately was the same,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“We did better towards half-time, but it was not enough. I expected perhaps a stronger fightback once we went 2-0 down, but Lazio did well to control the tempo and close off the spaces.

“I do feel we were a little too passive and should’ve fought to the last minute.”
