Captain Tommaso Rocchi is relieved at Lazio's first Europa League win, but points out “there are another two games to go.”
The Biancocelesti are still in with a chance of qualifying for the next phase after their 1-0 victory over FC Zurich.
“We really needed this win,” Rocchi told Mediaset. “We knew it wasn't going to be an easy game, as Zurich play well, are very organised and know how to defend.
“The second half went better, as we were more aggressive and pushed the centre of the team further up the field, so in the end we managed to score with Cristian Brocchi.”
Lazio face a head-to-head with Romanians Vaslui, who beat leaders Sporting 1-0 this evening, putting them level on five points.
“It is pleasing to have won this game and brought home the three points, but we know there are another two games to go and qualification is wide open. We need more points.”
