Sarri: "Football Is Evolving To Become More Demanding On Players. I Believe That This Team Is More Capable Than The Previous Season's Squad."

The manager of Lazio, Maurizio Sarri, made it clear that he felt his team had put forth their best effort and earned their victory over Fiorentina during their recent match in Serie A.

Both Lazio and Fiorentina faced disappointment at the Stadio Olimpico. Lucas Beltran's first-half goal was disallowed due to a handball, and he also hit the crossbar. Additionally, goalkeeper Pietro Terracioano had a series of remarkable saves.

Lazio achieved a 1-0 win over La Viola with a penalty kick from Ciro Immobile. The penalty was awarded after Matias Vecino's header struck Nikola Milenkovic's arm in the penalty box. Immobile, who was a substitute, confidently executed the penalty to secure Lazio's victory.

According to Sarri in an interview with Sky Sport Italia, the game was a difficult one and the outcome was predictable.

In the first half, Fiorentina had more opportunities than the host team, but the second half showcased a powerful performance by Lazio, with three or four excellent chances created. Although it was a challenging match, Sarri believes that the team deserved to win due to their strong showing in the second half.

There was difficulty for the Biancoceleste to mount a successful counterattack, often leading to moments of hesitation.

"During the first half of the game, we missed several opportunities and did not move enough without possession of the ball. This, in turn, made it easier for the opponent to succeed.” Explained the coach.

Although Sarri is reputed to be opposed to player rotation, the necessity to do so has arisen due to his team's participation in the Champions League. A fresh substitute from the bench may assist them in their ambitions.

"In my opinion, football is evolving to become more demanding on players. The schedule of matches is becoming more packed, and enduring 90 minutes of play under current conditions is arduous for every athlete. However, I believe that this team is more capable than the previous season's squad. It remains for us to demonstrate that we are significantly more powerful or, at the very least, as skilled in our starting lineup."

After this triumph, The Aquile found themselves in seventh place, trailing Fiorentina by only one point and three points from fourth place, Atalanta.
