Simone Inzaghi has insisted that Lazio are taking no notice of their Serie A rivals. ‘We’re only looking at ourselves.’
Lazio’s Scudetto hopes took a huge hit at the weekend, going down 3-0 to Milan while Juventus beat Torino 4-1 to open a seven-point lead at the top.
Inzaghi’s side host Lecce in their next game, and the coach made it clear his team were focused on the task at hand
“We’re only looking at ourselves, regardless of results elsewhere,” he told Lazio Style Radio before the match tomorrow.
“We analysed the match against Milan in no time. It’ll be tough at Lecce, but we have to go game by game.
“We’ll see which players can give us guarantees to start the game. We still have a small training session, which I’ll use to grasp a better idea of their general condition.
“The game won’t at all be easy. Lecce are a team who play good football and Liverani’s both a great coach and friend of mine.
“They’re fighting for survival and they’re down there with so many other teams.
“Even at the Olimpico, they would’ve given us cause for concern.”
