Saturday’s victory proved that Lazio are back among Italy’s elite once again.

Simone Inzaghi’s side did well to come back from a goal down and beat Juventus at home for the first time since December 2003. It keeps them in a solid third place in the Serie A standings.

The Aquile have also recorded seven wins in a row in the league. While a first Champions League appearance since 2007/08 is looking like a real possibility.

“We are in a great period of form,” Inzaghi told DAZN.

“We should be ambitious, knowing also that six weeks ago people said we weren’t getting results, but I remained calm.

“The club was always close to me, even when we lost, reassuring me there were no problems.”
