Giampaolo Pazzini started the match rather than Balotelli, who did come on during the second half.
"I thought Pazzini could give us something more for this game due to his characteristics. I simply chose the side I thought could hurt the opponents more.
"I firmly believed we could surprise Lazio and I put on another striker, but unfortunately the equaliser came and the result remained like that."
