Sarri: "A Team That Is Not Solid Next Can Be Unlucky, That's What Happened With Us Tonight. The Problem Is We Shouldn't Always Have To React After Going Behind, Our Performances Have To Be Consistent, Approach And Focused."

Maurizio Sarri watched Lazio play in chaos in the first half and was determined to come back until finally being held to a 4-4 draw by his visitors, Udinese on Thursday (02/12) night at the Stadio Olimpico.

Lazio trailed 3-1 to Udinese into the first half through Beto's brace and Nahuel Molina then managed to make it 4-3 but conceded in the 99th minute from a free-kick and much to the chagrin of coach Maurizio Sarri.

"We conceded the equalizer with a free-kick which was blatantly awarded to the wrong team, as Soppy was holding it with his hands," Sarri said via Sky Sport Italia.

"In the first half we were chaotic, maybe still affected by the disaster against Napoli, we were able to equalize at 3-3, then we lost one player, then they got a red card too we could have gone 4-3 up and the game looks like it's over."

"There were negative and positive aspects of this game, I was satisfied with our reaction in the second half, we showed character and a desire to come back, whereas in the first half we didn't know what had happened."

"The problem is we shouldn't always have to react after going behind, our performances have to be consistent, approach and focus, instead we just run without the ball, mentally we're turned off."

The Biancoceleste tend to concede on quick counter-attacks and have now conceded 29 goals in 15 Serie A games.

"We had moments where we played like a team, but we didn't do it consistently, we made too many mistakes in defense, but not just the defenders, because allowing counter-attacks like that means our midfielders don't pass properly either," he explained.

"A team that is not solid next can be unlucky, that's what happened with us tonight."
