The Swiss tactician is satisfied with the performance of Lazio and qualifying for the knockouts of the Europa League.

Following the 2-0 win in Warsaw, Petkovic was quick to praise his side for their efforts; "I want to congratulate the team for their desire to establish themselves on the road and to fight for everything in this match.
The team showed character, joy and desire. All this is important. We are now through to the knock out stages so we are all pleased”.

This victory ensures there will be European football for Lazio in the New Year and also keeps alive the possibility of claiming top spot in Group J from Trabzonspor. The Biancoceleti welcome the Turkish side at the Stadio Olimpico on December 12th for what promises to be a hotly contested and intriguing clash.

When asked about the upcoming Serie A match against Napoli, Petkovic stated; "We need to quickly regroup and prepare for Napoli on Sunday. They are a very good side and it will be tough but we want nothing more than a victory. We have the hunger to win”.

So far reports are suggesting that Petkovic will have a full squad to choose from against Napoli apart from Klose, Dias, Biava, Pereirinha and Vinicius.
