At the end of the match Lazio’s defender Dusan Basta spoke at Lazio Style Channel (233 Sky) after the match:
"Today was the first of three matches going to Christmas. It was the most important one, because it happened after the loss in the derby, it was not easy to prepare it during the week but we did well and we won with the will, earning three points on a very difficult field. Now we must not relax, we have two difficult games to close our year at the best.
We won deserving, it’s three very important points. It's never easy to win on a field like this. We knew that they would have wanted to equalize the game in the second half. We were good in both the first and the second time, to close their trident and managed together with the will to win and to fight, to bring home an important result. We have turned the block after the derby, we must do it again today to prepare well for the match against Fiorentina. The coach asked us to stay closer on defense and we did it well. I know Muriel, Quagliarella and Bruno Fernandes, I played with them and they are very important players with great quality. For this we enjoy even more this win. Next Sunday we will have to repeat tonight's desire .
We have quality and when we fight for each other, all together, all our individual qualities come out, this is the right path. Now we rest and then prepare as well, both tactically and physically, the match against Fiorentina, hoping to have our fans back at the Olimpico. We have so many people on the staff who prepare us in detail our opponents, we have seen many of these videos and we have prepared the game. Felipe today was amazing. Him, with the quality he has, with his speed is able to split the games and is able to express himself better when he backs down more and starts from longer distances. Even today he helped me so much and had so much room to run. With more spaces, he comes out better, actually he made two important assists”.
