“We are in good shape after resting thanks to the postponed game against Udinese. We were tired after so many matches, but we’ve prepared well and are fully aware there’s a second leg to consider too,” the former Genoa man told Lazio Style Channel.

“We’ll have to give our all in this home leg, win and be convincing so it also gives us momentum going into the derby this weekend.

“I watched Lazio before I came here in January and they were playing quality football, so I’m sure we’ll get back to that level.”
