Last quote by Luciano Spalletti

If you look at the game today, we were weaker in defence. After a result like this, you have to accept all the criticism. We lost sharpness, made bad decisions, were unlucky on the incidents, as both the first and second goal were deflected shots from the edge of the box. We created six or seven chances that we failed to convert. We should've kept more possession, as we did in the opening 10 minutes, and that would've worn Lazio down, making it easier for us to break them down. Instead, by taking the lead, Lazio could simply counter.feedback

We started off playing the way we thought that we had to play and created chances, but Lazio scored with their first attempt. Of course it was a psychological blow, you make mistakes and it becomes a wide open game. We were no longer the team we know that we are. I opted to go with three at the back after a while, as Lazio were dangerous on the counter and lacked sharpness. Then Lazio scored again with a deflection, so we were unlucky.”.

Luciano Spalletti quotes

For a variety of reasons, winning is imperative here. We don't have the time to think of a gradual progression, everything is accelerated, lived at full-speed. So it's very simple: if I don't win something, it means I haven't done any better than my predecessors and, as a result, I'll have to go home. What is he like? To still have Totti after all these years offers a notable advantage. When he comes onto the pitch, he creates a special atmosphere right away.feedback

We must be realistic. It was difficult before, now it's almost impossible. They were much better in the first half at moving the ball quickly, whereas we hardly ever managed to raise the tempo or get into the right positions. They also made us really suffer to win back the ball. You need the sharpness to make those two or three passes in a row to open up spaces and Napoli did it far better. We improved in the second half and it was a whole other game, although we were rather unlucky with the woodwork.feedback

I don't think it's right to talk about fatigue, as that makes the situation worse. You can talk about it, but don't involve me, especially as towards the end the team had a completely different attitude, so they can't have been tired. We could not have played like that in the final minutes if we were fatigued. On Wednesday we didn't play that well, but we weren't dominated by Lazio at all. We knew how they'd play and did not adjust accordingly.feedback

When we made it more one-against-one in the second half, we saw a team with a more spirit and fluidity. I decided to give more space to Stephan El Shaarawy and Diego Perotti, but the whole team didn't step up at the right times, so they weren't given the chance to make more of an impact.feedback

If you find the right through ball, it can make all the difference. Unfortunately, we tended to play it badly and were not calm, courageous or precise enough.feedback

I expect us to make the right decisions when the time comes for us to dig in and I expect the team to defend in an orderly fashion and pick the right time to push on.feedback

Of course, we have lots of matches at the moment and that uses up a lot of energy, but we are not tired - we are ready. We have just as good a chance in Saturday's game as Napoli do, even if they have had an extra day of rest. We do not want sympathy from anyone, that is not what we are about. We play on a level playing field against a strong side who will come at us with the same intentions. Our players have proved they are mature and Saturday we will need to show every bit of the maturity we have built up since we started working together last season.feedback

I don't want to get into who is favourite, we will just think about getting in there and playing 90 minutes with all our quality and all we got because this is the most important match in Zenit's history.feedback
