Lazio suffered a second straight league loss and saw their defence once again ripped apart in a 3-0 loss away to Sampdoria this past weekend. Le Aquile have shipped seven goals in their last two Serie A matches and manager Simone Inzaghi is a man under pressure.

“It’s a bad defeat. You can lose a match, but not like this. Sampdoria dominated us from the first minute to the last,” said Inzaghi, who added: “We were lacking in determination, in team spirit, and that had never really happened before. Sampdoria put in a great performance, but our attitude facilitated that.”

Bologna, meanwhile, also have defensive issues to address after they shipped four goals in a 4-3 home loss at the hands of Sassuolo – giving up a 3-1 lead in the process.

“We have many injuries and we have to face the difficulties bravely, without any objections. I always repeat to the boys that courage must be greater than fear so that they can cope,” said manager Sinisa Mihajlovic.
