Lazio Determines to repeat the Success in the Champions League 20 years ago

By db-admin – Lazio are only one step away from qualifying for the top 16 of this season’s Champions League. They are determined to repeat their best achievements two decades ago.

On the fourth matchday of Group F of the Champions League, Wednesday (11/25/2020) am, Lazio managed to overthrow Zenit St. Petersburg 3-1 at home. Ciro Immobile scored two of the winning goals (3 ‘, 55’), the remaining one for Marco Parolo (22 ‘).

Meanwhile, Zenit was only able to attenuate defeat through Artem Dzyuba (25 ‘). This result leaves the Biancoceleste unbeaten in four matches, with two wins and two draws.

Lazio is currently in second place with 8 points, one point less than Borussia Dortmund who has 9 points, three wins and one defeat to Lazio.

Meanwhile, the third position is occupied by Club Brugge, who had just packed 4 points. With two games remaining, Lazio needs one more win to seal their ticket to the top 16, while repeating what they did 20 years ago.

At that time, Lazio managed to qualify for the top 16 (formerly called the second group phase), and finally reached the quarter-finals before falling to Valencia. Lazio coach, Simone Inzaghi was part of the Capital City Eagle team during this period, playing as a striker.

Although Gli Aquilotti’s move to the knockout stage is not guaranteed, moreover they still have to fight Borussia Dortmund on the fifth matchday, but the optimism in the team is quite felt.

“We managed to win and took a step forward to qualifying, so the whole team deserves to be congratulated. When we win like this, our team makes a difference. We are constantly developing and this mentality needs to be maintained,” Parolo told Mediaset.

“You know the importance of what we are doing at the moment. There are two crucial games waiting and we want to qualify for the knockout phase as soon as possible,” explained the 35-year-old player regarding the chances of qualifying for Lazio.
