  15/11/2012: Casiraghi: Juve has an advantage
email print  
Pierluigi Casiraghi, born on 4 March 1969 is a former Lazio striker. He scored 56 goals from his 188 appearances in 1993-1998. He is well recorded on Lazio history. A history that could be continued on last February as he and Zola were one step away to replace Reja after his resignation.

The former striker spoke on RadioSei: "The derby was a really good game, not only because we won, but also it was a very exciting game. Lazio have proven to be a strong team with quality players that should be counted in the competition. Tactically Lazio have made a very smart game, waited for the Roma to attack and then spreading them to put them on pressure gradually. Thanks to a quality midfield. Roma has also made a good game, they had the chance to equalize it, but there were so many individual mistakes”.

The derby, according to Casiraghi, may be the important turning point of the competition.

About next Juventus game: "On paper Juventus is superior to all other teams in Italy, but I do not think that Lazio is less than Inter Milan or Napoli. I  am curious to watch the game on Saturday, it could even be similar to the derby intensity. Juve will be facing Chelsea in the crucial Champions League game next Tuesday, and this will affect much on Saturday game, I expect many of players rotation”.

When he asked about Juve game prediction: “Juve has an advantage, but who knows?”
