Simon Inzaghi acknowledged Lazio’s Serie A title chances have been dealt a blow after losing 3-0 to AC Milan. Although, the head-coach insists the Scudetto hopes will not waver.

Lazio was comprehensively beaten by visiting AC Milan in Rome on Saturday as Inzaghi’s men fell seven points adrift of the defending champions and leaders Juventus.

Without the leading goal scorers Ciro Immobile and Felipe Caicedo due to suspension, Lazio’s Scudetto dream were derailed by Hakan Calhanoglu, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ante Rebic.

Lazio, who is eyeing their first league crown since 2000 faces an uphill battle now since Juventus appears to be in pole position to lift yet another league title.

Encouragingly, Lazio isn’t throwing in the towel just yet.

“This defeat weighs on us in the table. But we knew that there were some objective difficulties today”. Said Inzaghi.

“We weren’t very fortunate either as we conceded a goal with a deflection, another on a penalty that Thomas Strakosha almost saved. Then we had two chances to get it back on track only to concede the third goal”.

“Unfortunately, I can’t rotate the squad right now, so playing four games in under two weeks becomes difficult”.

“We’ve got to look forward and prepare for the next match. We know the journey we have taken and have no intention of letting go. We’ll probably lose Correa to injury for the next one. We must try to rotate a little because these lads are now very tired”.

“Correa has been struggling with a calf problem for a few weeks. If Caicedo and Immobile weren’t suspended, he wouldn’t have played today. Lucas Leiva had his first appearance today after just 25 minutes of training. We only made the decisions after a fitness test this morning”.

“Bobby Adekanye hadn’t played for 25 days either, Milinkovic-Savic and Correa told me they weren’t feeling right. It was difficult against Milan in these circumstances. Even then I have to think we could’ve got back into it at 2-1”.

“Initially, Luis Alberto was meant to be in support of Correa. But we were lacking a physical presence and hadn’t really used this tactic without Immobile. If we’d had Adekanye in training during the week, I probably would’ve started him, as he is at least a center-forward.”
