Inzaghi hails Lazio for ‘making it look so easy’

Wed 25 November 2020 | 6:26

Lazio locked horns with Zenit on Tuesday and it was a thumping 3-1 victory for the Eagles. Simone Inzaghi praises Lazio for ‘making it look easy’ to rise to Round 16 in the Champions League.

Lazio

hold 8 points, only 1 behind the title-holder,

Dortmund

, and Club Brugge are 4 points behind.

We did well to make it seem easy, but it really was not, as Zenit are accustomed to being in the Champions League,” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia

.

We have gone beyond the rosiest expectations with eight points from four games. We took two very important draws away from Bruges and St Petersburg despite missing numerous players, but we had to consolidate that with a win today

.

We’re getting players back from injury now and it was very important that we get the points this evening

.”

Lazio’s striker,

Ciro Immobile

, scored the first goal after 24 passes managed by the team.

These lads have tried to play good football for several years now and I think we did against Crotone on Saturday in impossible circumstances

.”

Right after Lazio’s second goal by Marco Parolo,

Zenit

striker, Artem Dzyuba, scored his team’s first and only goal.

“We could’ve done better shifting back on their initial long ball, we had prepared to close down on Dzyuba especially his head, so when we concede a goal, we need to analyse it

.

Lazio scored three goals tonight, could’ve scored six or seven, so objectively there are things we should do better on

.”

Borussia Dortmund

’s away match with Club Brugge was a 3-1 victory for the BVB. But Inzaghi would have liked a ‘different result’.

I had this idea that Dortmund might win, but calculating we’ve got the last game at home to Brugge, I would’ve preferred a different result

.”

On December 2, Lazio and Borussia Dortmund will lock horns.
