Sarri: "I'm Happy With Their Performance But Not With The Result. We Deserved The Win, But Looking At The Game, I Could See That Torino Played Well Too."

Maurizio Sarri saw a brighter side after Lazio's 0-0 draw with hosts Torino last Saturday (20/08). The Italian coach said he was happy with the team's performance, but not the final result.

Lazio failed to break the deadlock at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on Saturday night, with a solid defense but no attacking chances. Their defending duo Patric and Alessio Romagnoli shone in front of goalkeeper Ivan Provedel, suggesting Lazio had finally found solid form at the back.

After the game, Maurizio Sarri confirmed he was pleased with Biancoceleste's performance.

"I'm happy with their performance but not with the result, everything went according to our plan, we created chances and unfortunately we didn't execute them but we have to be careful because we are on a tough pitch against a team that I think is stronger than last season," the coach said via LazioNews24.

The 63-year-old coach then detailed some of his tactical decisions during the game and explained why he didn't start Marcos Antonio or Luis Alberto against Torino.

"Because I planned the game, we needed more physicality in the first half and when they started to falter, I put in the quality and I did it," he explained.

"The wing sector is less prominent?  They play well defensively, but offensively they have to be more active behind Ciro."

"From the stats, we deserved the win, but looking at the game, I could see that Torino played well too."
