At the day before Lazio-Fiorentina, the head coach Simone Inzaghi spoke in press conference:
"The next 72 hours will be decisive. We are only focused on Fiorentina. We will have to play at our best. In the next two match we will meet two very strong teams that have lost few points in this season.
Cataldi will return from the first minute. Bastos impressed everyone. He can play also as a right back. Patric isn’t in a good condition yet.
Fiorentina plays a good football, we will have to do our best. We wanted to create enthusiasm and to stay at the top of the standings. Now we are in a good position and we want to maintain it. Lulic can play in three different roles. He is a very important player for us. Last year, we faced Fiorentina in the last match of the season".
