Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi has picked his favouriteperformance this season while reviewing his team from the start of the current campaign last year. He made this known in a chat with the Lazio Style Channel. On his best performance of the season, Inzaghi opted for the Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund.
On the reason for his choice, Inzaghi revealed that the Borussia Dortmund game marked the return of the club to the Champions League stage after a decade plus. Lazio had not played Champions League football for 13 years until this season.He added that Dortmund are a very good team who ended up fighting it out with finalists Manchester City when the two teams met in the quarterfinals.
Lazio made a fantastic return to Europe’s premier club competition under the guidance of Inzaghi with a 3-1 win at home to German Bundesliga giants Dortmund on October 20, 2020 through goals from Italian international Ciro Immobile, MarwinHitz (own goal) and substitute Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro. The visitors got their only goal through ErlingHaaland.
Lazio boss Inzaghi also mentioned the games against the Italian football duo of AS Roma and AC Milan as he recounted the best games played by his team this season.
The Rome derby between Lazio and Roma is one of the most popular derbies in Italian football and Lazio put on a good showing in the first Rome derby in Italian football this season with the 3-0 win at home to AS Roma. Lazio also recorded the same scoreline when they played hosts to Milan at the StadioOlimpico at the end of last month.
Inzaghi also pointed out that Lazio were able to seal a fifth successive European campaign via the league this season even if there’s a little regret that they didn’t make it back-to-back campaigns in the Champions League.
