Sarri: "I Told The Players, If We Keep Playing Like This, We Won't Lose"

Maurizio Sarri made sure there was no need for debate over the second goal scored by Lazio when they beat the visitors, Inter Milan with a score of 3-1.  The hosts have made a successful comeback and won three perfect points in the match which took place on Saturday (16/10).

Coach Maurizio Sarri commented on Lazio's victory over defending Serie A champions Inter Milan.  He expressed the optimism instilled in him when they fell behind through Ivan Perisic's penalty.

"I saw from the start of the game that we were facing a good team, but we were only behind on penalties," the coach said via DAZN.

"I told the players, if we keep playing like this, we won't lose, I was right, we just needed that moment to get back into the game."

Ivan Perisic opened the scoring with a penalty and Ciro Immobile equalized from the penalty spot, however, there was controversy in Biancoceleste's second goal.  Felipe Anderson completed the counter-attack with Federico Dimarco crashing down injured, although Inter had control of the ball before he was injured, and play continued and Lautaro Martinez had a shot on target.

"There's no need to argue, Dimarco fell and Inter had a shot on goal, if anyone had to stop the game then it was them and they didn't, it's a clear situation, they allowed play to go on.

"There are clear rules, you only find these protests in Italy, in European competitions, in the Champions League, this kind of thing doesn't happen, it only happens in Italy.

"We struggled in the first half with the Inter winger, so we had to cut him off and avoid crosses."
