Lazio coach Stefano Pioli spoke to Sky after his team failed to take advantage of leading the game 2-0 and ending up with a draw at the Meazza against Inter: “Inter put a lot of pressure on us and we suffered. I am sorry because we were penalized by two set-pieces, the Nerazzurri did not create a lot. We could not control the ball because they were very aggressive. The great goal by Kovacic changed the game.”

“We wanted to win the game and had their start of the second half not been so strong. Teams like Inter have these qualities and the goal of Kovacic set the tone for the end of the game. Third place? Partial result. We are working well, now we will reload the batteries for the month of January, which will be very important. But this team has always proved to be up for it.”

Klose and Djordjevic: will they always take turns playing? “I am fortunate to have two strong strikers, there are no problems.”

In general, a positive Lazio. “The team has been able to feel good on the pitch, we go home with a positive result.”

Why the substitution of Lulic? “We needed some new energy and he was also warned. I could have changed others, but it felt right at that moment.”
