We’ll learn from this and it’ll help us to grow.”said the 42 year-old, according to Goal.“It was an emotional journey. It’s a shame we couldn’t give them this semi-final, which was right there in front of us.“I don’t think we were defensive this evening at all. We had the scoring opportunities and simply didn’t take enough of them. The two goals they scored in Rome were also somewhat fortuitous, but we move on.“I am sure it’ll be another step in the growth experience, as let’s not forget we have many young players in their first European campaigns.”Lazio will now return their focus to the Serie A with Inzaghi’s side being involved in a tight battle for a spot in the top four. Currently the capital club are in third place in the Serie A standings ahead of rivals Roma, Inter Milan and AC Milan.last_img
