Simone Inzaghi has challenged his side to end the winless run at San Siro against Milan when they meet in Saturday’s Champions League qualification showdown.
Lazio are yet to register a win against the Rossoneri in Serie A since September 1989 – which is a run of 17 losses and 11 draws.
With both teams battling for a spot in the top four, manager Inzaghi has urged his men to use it as a motivation to end the ugly run on Saturday.
“We’re playing an important game, which will count for our journey into Europe. I want a team with clear heads and the belief that they’re strong,” the Biancocelesti Coach stated at his Press conference via Football Italia.
“We’re confident going into tomorrow’s game, but against Sassuolo and SPAL it just didn’t happen for us.”
Inzaghi’s men share an identical record with their host -both teams are winless in the last two Serie A games and he went on to talk about his team’s poor record at San Siro.
“We haven’t won at Milan for a while, but all taboos are made to be broken,” he continued.
“We have already beaten Juventus and won before in Milan against Inter.
“The starting XI is almost decided. I just have doubts over who will partner Francesco Acerbi in defence.
After a list of controversies involving the VARs and referees, Inzaghi spoke about the decision to designate Gianluca Rocchi as the match official.
“For me, he is a guarantee at European level,” he concluded.
“Tomorrow that will be important for all the fans who will be there and the importance of the game.”
