Lulic relishing first start in over a year

Senad Lulic makes his first Serie A start since February 5, 2020, and assures Lazio are ‘concentrated only’ on Sampdoria rather than Bayern Munich.

It kicks off at 14.00 GMT, click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

“It has been a difficult year, with a lot of hard work and sacrifices. I am happy to be able to step onto the pitch from the first minute after more than a year,” Lulic told Sky Sport Italia.

“I came on for 15-20 minutes off the bench in a few games, I needed a few more training sessions with the team, but I feel ready now.”

The Biancocelesti were defeated by Sampdoria earlier this season when they were distracted by the Champions League, but Lulic assures that won’t be the case this time.

“We are concentrated only on today’s game. We lost heavily at Marassi and want to prove we are not the team seen that day. Our only focus right now is to get a result today, then from tomorrow we’ll think about Bayern Munich.”
