The papers then focus on Lazio's 1-0 defeat to Siena last night. It was clear to see that Lazio are still not sharp enough and lacking fitness as chances were few and far between. Siena won thanks to a goal from Giannetti in the first half and continue their status as Lazio's bête noire. Petkovic tried various different shapes during the match but may have had his mind on the friendly with Nice which takes place tonight.
Ledesma told the media after the game: “We tried to hold the ball, we made good passes but we lacked speed on the counter attack. We are however well underway and we are working hard. We need to find the right mechanisms to integrate the new signings and Primavera boys.”
