Marco Parolo spoke to Lazio Style Channel right after the 2-1 loss from Empoli:

“Empoli were good at taking their chances and we were not. Candreva, Djordjevic and myself had good scoring chances but we all missed them. We knew that the home team was dangerous at set pieces. This was their weapon and they used it in the right moment. We fought for every ball as we always do. That is why we managed to climb so much in the table. We have a lot more work to do and improve our game because we still have some weak points we have to work on. We have to start doing it right away because our next opponent is Juventus.”

Before an international break it’s always good to win a game and wait for your next one in a good mood. Here is what Parolo had to say about it:

“International breaks don’t affect us. We have always done well after such stops for national games. We just have to roll up our sleeves and work hard. Positive attitude is what we need. Our reaction to both goals from Empoli was good but they defended well. “

“Empoli had a strong start to the game but we were able to create some chances in the right moments. We know that we have to work more. I think that the spirit of the team was right. Maybe we need to be better at reading the situations. We also need to take advantage of every single opportunity we get in attack. This game we struggled to score.”

Parolo also spoke about Lazio’s goal for the season:

“We want to go back to Europe. It’s nice to dream but this is the reality at the moment. In March, April things might change but for now this is the way they stand.”

The Italian international also spoke about Lazio’s next game versus the current champions Juventus:

“We want to make a good impression against Juventus. Our pride is at stake. We want to continue growing as a team and a good result at the Olimpico will help us a lot. “
