At the day before Lazio-Sassuolo, the head coach Simone Inzaghi spoke in press conference:

The match against Sassuolo is very important for us. I hope we can give continuity to last performances. We are a little bit tired because of the three matches in eigth days. We did not have much time but we need to prepare the match in the best way.

Sassuolo will have a few injuries but we have to win playing a good football. We are in a good moment, we must start strong.

We are doing our best from last summer in Auronzo. I already knew this group. Parolo and Cataldi can both play as play-maker, but also Murgia can play in this role. Biglia and Milinkovic are available.

I hope that our fans will come back to the stadium tomorrow because we need them. My players feel the support of the fans.

Patric is playing continuously in the last matches: in next hours I'll evaluate who is in better condition between him and Basta. Immobile is ok, Bastos, de Vrij and Lukaku aren't still available.

Di Francesco is very good coach, Sassuolo is a very organized team that runs a lot and that brings many players in attack.

Biglia came back in group two days ago. Today there will be the last weekly session, then I will talk with him and with the medical staff to take the final decision".
