Simone Inzaghi thanked Lazio for “starting with the right attitude” and making their 3-0 win over Udinese relatively comfortable.
The Aquile notched up a sixth consecutive Serie A victory to consolidate third place and set up an exciting clash with Juventus next week.
“It was a tricky game and I was really concerned, because we played in the Europa League on Thursday and Udinese are a good team,” Inzaghi told DAZN.
“The lads started with the right attitude and it was more comfortable from then on. I congratulate my players on a mature performance.”
Ciro Immobile scored twice, while Luis Alberto converted a penalty.
“We’re playing good football at the moment, getting strong results and are the most prolific side in the division along with Atalanta, but I still ask for us to do even better. We can’t rest on our laurels.
“The next match is against Juventus, which will be tough, but we’ll play to our strengths. Our objective this season is to maintain this position. It won’t be easy, as the others are starting to get into gear, but we must be ready for anything.”
