The Lazio coach knows full well the tough challenge his side will face against Catania at the Stadio Massimino tomorrow;

"This match will be important for both sides. We need to test ourselves to see what we do well and to try and close the gap with the other sides aiming for European qualification. The timing of this match is good, however we must continue our good form with a good performance in order to gain more conviction and confidence", stated Reja.

Under Reja’s reappointment in January, the side finds itself undefeated in Serie A and against Catania will look for the third away win in a row.

"We find ourselves in good form and with a positive result we will increase our chances of reaching the higher positions in the league. It is within our reach even though there is vast competition, including Verona, Milan and Torino. I want to see a convincing Lazio tomorrow with a higher tempo for the entire game", stated the veteran tactician.

He was then asked about Catania;

"Catania are not an easy opponent. They have improved a lot this year and really deserved to win against Parma last weekend. They are experiencing a time of conviction and resurgence so we will find ourselves in a difficult, away environment but we must pick up the pace as much as possible"
