Edy Reja spoke to the media following Lazio's qualification and did not hide his happiness due to the win.

"We wanted this win, and now we can rebuild our confidence. Had we not won, it would have been a very difficult situation." said the tactician.

"There were times in the first half we did very well. But after Rocchi scored his second goal, I don't know what happened. We suffered and at 2-0 we should not have given them the chance. They had some chances and punished us, we were not very ready physically and were still affected from the Siena match. We must not forget that Verona are doing well at this moment." continued Edy.

Reja then lamented Lazio's luck with injuries. "We have many injuries, and we are forced to play with players who have not played a lot and are not 100% ready."

Finally a turn on the transfer market: "I will discuss the transfers with Tare, Cana is out for two months and we need to do something in the middle. We will discuss our options with the president."

Ledesma also gave an opinion: "We were searching for a positive performance, and we can never do worse than what happened against Siena. We need to work on our mentality, we did not react well on Saturday, now we need to focus on Atalanta and the team is compact, we do not have any problems together, it is only the media that makes up stories."

Rocchi also spoke after the game: "It was a very difficult win, but we were good. Our problem is that we don't react well when in difficulty. This happened against Siena, but we are a good team and we will get the results if we work well."
