Lazio boss is happy with his men for their performance against Lokomotiv Moscow.

After

Lazio’s

3-0 victory against

Lokomotiv Moscow

that helped them reach the Europa League qualification match against

Galatasaray

, their boss

Maurizio Sarri

has talked about his side’s performance praising

Pedro’s

quality.

The high-profile manager admitted that the opposition made the job hard for Lazio with a strong press, but he said that they had a good performance after breaking Lokomotiv’s press.

“Their pressing was pretty strong in the first half, they were aggressive and at times too much with some bad fouls,”

Sarri told Sky Sport Italia

.

“However, once we got past that press, we found spaces. It was all downhill after breaking the deadlock, as they had to open up a bit more and we made the most of it, as we could’ve had several more goals.

“Pedro is a phenomenal player and when he’s on these nights, in these games, he can change everything. In the end, quality makes the difference.”

He has also talked about the changes in his squad, explaining that he had to include Immobile in his starting lineup because they already had so many changes in their lineup.

“We usually would’ve rested him, but we made five changes from Saturday and had an extremely competitive line-up. This was probably the decisive match in a very difficult group.

“We’ve qualified, now we’ll see if we can secure direct access to the Round of 16.”

Lazio will face Napoli on the weekend at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, and Sarri claims that playing against Napoli is never an easy job.

“It can never be a game like the others against Napoli, that is obvious.”
