Lazio target fourth place Thursday 12 February, 2004


Lazio¡¦s brand of football is good enough to beat Inter to a fourth place finish, according to President Ugo Longo.

The capital chief admits that the Nerazzurri have a more competitive squad but believes that may make no difference.

"Inter have some great champions at their disposal but Lazio can plug the gap by playing how we can," he stated.

Longo is on a high after he witnessed Lazio destroy Milan in the semi-final of the Coppa Italia last night.

The Biancocelesti beat the Milan giants 4-0, with all goals scored in the first half, to ensure a 6-1 aggregate victory.

"Inter have invested heavily in the January transfer window with the purchases of Adriano and Dejan Stankovic but we have a real chance," he added.

"If we can keep playing the way we are doing then we will fight for that Champions¡¦ League place until the very end of the season."

Lazio and Inter are currently joint fourth in the League. Seven points behind third place Juventus.

Lazio were in this season¡¦s Champions¡¦ League but were eliminated at the group stage with Chelsea, Sparta Prague and Besiktas finishing above them.

And in the other news the Sun rises daily.:) :tongue:

Why did this "news" deserved a new thread? The fact that Lazio is aiming for the fourth place right now is painfully obvious for everyone.
