  21/11/2012: Petkovic: We will play to win both games in League Europe

On the eve of the match against Tottenham for Europa League, Lazio coach Vladimir Petkovic gave a press conference: We will not make any calculation, we will play to win both games tomorrow and next game against Maribor. We will go there to win.”

“Klose? He has not been training with the team and for us it is important all players to be at hundred percent. I’m not bothered by anything. I’m used of hearing a lot of things. At times we are forced by the opponent to play a certain game, we make mistakes during setup, we have not been good at keeping the ball and we paid the price, but we were never disorganized – spoke Petkovic about the game against Juventus – Juve had as many occasions against Chelsea, as they did against us.”

Klose will most probably play against Tottenham Thursday night, as his absence in training yesterday was only a precaution. Petkovic has another problem to solve – the center of the defense. There are two options – Ciani in the center and Radu on the left side or Radu next to Biava and Lulic on the left.
