Exciting night in Formula: Thursday at 21.00 Lazio will play against Galatasaray on the last day of the Europa League group stage. The biancocelesti, who is second with 8 points, already has the sporting certainty of qualifying. However, a victory over the Turks would mean primacy in the group and a clear path to the second round. Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri predicted tomorrow’s live match in the press conference on the eve of the match. Here are his words.
In the Galatasaray match
“Tomorrow will be very important, there is a round of eight matches in the European Cup at stake. It was already necessary to qualify, but going straight to the last 16 would allow us to have two weeks of rest for training, which has not happened since August. I hope that Lazio has changed compared to the first leg, and I hope to see our better version, it will be needed: they lead the most complex group in the Europa League. They have never conceded away goals in Europe this year.”

On hard injury
The injury is minor and not serious. If he is able to play, he will do so, otherwise we will find other solutions.”

About the importance of order on the field
“The level of the application has a strong impact. If the team loses the application, then chaotic races will come out. The goal is to make it consistent. With the system the quality has increased. Now the key word is persistence.
What does it take to reach the bottom?
It will depend on many factors. In the knockout stage, there is an element of luck as well, especially in the draw. It is definitely a competition at a higher level than the previous versions, given the current new trophy. In addition, great teams have been relegated from the Champions League.”
Was the real Zakani seen in Genoa?
“I hope the real Zakani will always do that. Unfortunately, he had two injuries, but he has been training continuously for 20 days. Hopefully the ordeal will be over: it has great qualities and a big change, and it will be very beneficial for us.”
