Lazzari: 'Lazio should've killed Celtic off'

Manuel Lazzari said Lazio are “downhearted, because it hurts to lose a game like this. We had the chances to kill Celtic off.”

The former SPAL winger had opened the scoring with a spectacular strike from a tight angle in at the near post, but once again the Aquile conceded late on to lose 2-1 in the Europa League.

“I am very happy with my first goal for Lazio, first goal in Europe, but it hurts so much to lose this game. We had so many chances, hit the woodwork, had three big opportunities.

“We knew Celtic were very physical, real beasts, and they just kept going at the end,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was an open and even game in the first half. After the break, we created two or three important chances, Correa hit the post, and we really should’ve killed off the game. Unfortunately, it happens a lot that we create opportunities and don’t finish them.

“The performance was there, we are well aware of it. We’re downhearted because it hurts to lose a game like this.”
