Fascetti backs Lazio

Former Coach Eugenio Fascetti says the fact Lazio have more riding on Sunday’s match with Napoli than their opponents could prove decisive.

The Biancocelesti are on a good run of recent form that has seen them work their way back into contention for a Europa League place.

“It will be a very intense weekend,” Fascetti said to Radio Marte. “Inter have a tough trip to Genoa to play Sampdoria and Fiorentina play Verona.

“A positive result for Mandorlini’s boys could put the Viola under pressure for the rest of the season.

“Thinking about Sunday’s match, at the moment Lazio have more motivation.

“They are having a good period and the fact they have a serious target to go for could play a decisive role in the outcome of the match.”
