Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi is worried by his side’s lack of reaction after negative incidents, as Lazio suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Bologna.


were looking to bounce back from their 4-1 home defeat against

Bayern Munich

in the first leg of the Champions League, but they missed the opportunity when

Ciro Immobile

failed to convert his penalty to put the Biancocelesti up 1-0.

80 seconds later,

Ibrahima Mbaye

punished them and scored the opener for the Rossoblù, before 

Nicola Sansone

doubled their lead with a splendid volley.

“An ambitious and strong team like ours should react differently. It can happen that you miss a penalty and then concede straight away,”

Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia


“I thought we had the right approach, we dominated the game, but we are here talking about a painful 2-0 defeat, so we must leave these two losses behind us.

“Paradoxically, out of the last four matches against Sinisa Mihajlovic’s Bologna, this is the one where we struggled the least, yet we lost 2-0.

“We need to be more determined in front of goal, get back on our feet against Torino midweek and I don’t want any excuses about Champions League fatigue.

“I’ll be honest, I am worried by the lack of a reaction we showed after negative incidents. Admittedly, our luck has not been great over the last couple of games, but a strong and ambitious team like ours has to react differently.

“Objectively, these two defeats hurt us and the team needs to get back to winning in order to put this behind us. Pepe Reina didn’t make a save today, yet we lost 2-0.”
