In today’s press conference ahead of the derby the Italian coach pushed his guys to think about the upcoming Serie A clash against Lazio.
Although this was the week of the Champions League, Eusebio Di Francesco believes that this is not the right moment to think about Liverpool. Simoni Inzaghi‘s side is a tough team with a great physicality and technique. EDF reckons that the Biancoazzurri will try to erase their burning European defeat by playing the derby with greater malice and temper.
“We will need enthusiasm, determination, and desire to win. This match is worth more than three points. The derby is always a special game for us.”
Roma’s head coach also focused on the tactical approach of his side. “The 3-4-3 tactical can be a valid alternative for us in the future. But without the right mental approach, the formation won’t do us any good.”
Lazio played a great season so far because and Roma must pay attention because, “We will be up against a very physical team, with a player up front who is excellent at attacking the space behind a defense” stated EDF.
