In his post-match press conference, Vladimir Petkovic admitted Lazio were just not good enough having thrown away a 2-0 lead against Sassuolo:

"We didn't play to our best, but at 2-0, we had to bring the result home. We were not focused enough at 2-1, but we saw a Sassuolo who dominated with high balls. Although we wanted to compete, we could not."

"It is the right result. Maybe they gave more, but the result is correct. We need to give more, we need to be hungry."

"It is not a physical problem, it is a lack of concentration, even if it just 10% less concentration against a motivated opponent. They began to believe and we have suffered for that. We need to be more present and bring the result home."

"We move on to Thursday for a good test."

When asked if his side were simply overconfident, Petkovic made it clear he felt that was not a concern:

"We didn't have time for that, as we conceded immediately. Both there goals came from still balls."

"It is not easy when these things happen. It is difficult to change their mentality. We have played a few rounds also, and we are not fresh. I tried to leave some players for the trip to Turkey."
