Lazio manager Edy Reja has expressed his confidence that the club will be able to qualify for the Europa league despite the significant advantage that Inter Milan possess within the last few weeks of the season.

Only the top five teams are capable of qualifying for the European competitions. Inter currently occupy the final fifth place with 55 points on the board. After a change in management in the last few months, Lazio have been picking up form. Reja says that he does not doubt that the club will be able to put up a challenge for the top five in the rest of the season.

Lazio manager Edy Reja says that it is very difficult for him to see the club supporters by boycotting the team and presenting an empty Stadio Olimpico for recently match. The president Claudio Lotito has been the reason for the club’s supporters protesting by not attending to matches.

They reportedly want Lotito to leave the club. However, Reja says that it is very difficult for him and the team to see an empty stadium, which is known for its atmosphere. The club are comfortable in the mid-table, but the success of Roma this campaign has stirred up the rivalry once again.

Lazio put up a superb performance in their last Serie A match against Inter Milan the other day and secured all the three points, but, their manager Edoardo Reja is not completely satisfied by that. He reckons that his boys could have performed better in that match.

Reja has recently been given the charge at Stadio Olimpico and the game against Inter was his first as Lazio boss.

Ogenyi Onazi, the Lazio midfielder, has stated that he would like to sign for EPL side Liverpool if their rumored interest turns official. In the last few weeks, the Nigerian was linked with Liverpool several times after his recent impressive performance in Italian Serie A.

Pressure has increased on manager Vladimir Petkovic after his Lazio team were defeated 2-0 by archrivals Roma in the latest league match between the two teams.

Even though Lazio are coming into the match on the back of a poor run of form, fans were hoping that the derby match would bring the best out of the players. Roma have started the season in excellent form under new manager Rudi Garcia. They have spent close to $ 86 million in the summer due to the backing from new investors. This has also raised the tension ahead of this match.

Lazio almost managed to seal a European spot last season under the guidance of manager Vladimir Petkovic. They also managed to win the title in the form of the Coppa Italia last season.

This was the first trophy that was won by the club since 2009. Manager Petkovic has said that he definitely wants Lazio to achieve more success in the coming seasons as he does not want to stop with a Coppa Italia victory alone. This success has helped repay the faith and support shown by the Lazio fans according to the manager.

Brazilian midfielder Hernanes has been one of the important players for Lazio this season. It has so far been a great campaign for Lazio, as they managed to stay close to the Champions League places for most of the campaign.

Even though they are now set to miss out on the elite competition, there are several reasons to be happy about the campaign. Hernanes is one of them, but the Brazilian is already being linked with several clubs across Europe after his impressive performances. Lazio sporting director Igli Tare, though, has confirmed that the player is not for sale.

The Lazio manager Vladimir Petkovic has said that there is no truth in the speculation that he will be taking over as the Borussia Dortmund manager in the summer. The German club Borussia Dortmund have had an incredible amount of success in the last few years under the management of Klopp, but the club has struggled to repeat the success this season.

Further, their manager has also been linked with several jobs across Europe. Hence, it has been rumoured that Borussia Dortmund have identified Petkovic as a replacement for Klopp, but the Lazio manager has dismissed such speculation.

The Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard would jump at the possibility of joining the Italian club Lazio according to his agent.

The 34-year-old England international is out of contract at the end of the season, while there has been no talk of a new deal with the European champions. Despite being out of contract, Lampard has had a huge influence on the Chelsea team. His 11 year association with the club is expected to come to an end this season with many clubs across the world rumoured to be interested in his services.

The Lazio manager Vladimir Petkovic has said that he is extremely happy to have qualified from the Europa league group stages into the knockout stages.

Lazio managed to enter into the knockout stages of the competition following their 0-0 draw with the Premier league club Tottenham. Even though this match was marred by a number of off the field incidents involving the Lazio supporters abusing the Tottenham supporters, it was a good result for Lazio on the pitch. They came into the match looking for just a draw in order to progress to the knockout stages.
