Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, Gasperini acknowledged that the team had experienced a difficult season in the top-flight and praised the players for their form during the backend of the campaign, he said: “It was a very difficult season and it ended with a game that certainly wasn’t easy. The boys have been wonderful, extraordinary. The Champions League was a goal that this club had never accomplished before. We managed to achieve it in an honourable way and we deserved it. In my opinion, we will do well in the Champions League.”

KEEP THE FOCUS

The Lazio manager Vladimir Petkovic has said that his team should not lose its focus when they play in the second leg match against FK Mura in the Europa league playoff round.
