Lazio keeper Marchetti up for Tottenham clash

Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti is up for their Europa League clash with Tottenham tonight.

Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti is up for their Europa League clash with Tottenham tonight.

Marchetti hit the headlines on Saturday with a stunning performance to hold out Juventus in a 0-0 draw.

“So many people saw that point we earned in Turin as unimportant, but it wasn’t for me. Being able to defend is a quality and we still have to improve, as the Coach tells us every day.

“I made three important saves against Juve, but I didn’t see that many other clear scoring opportunities. We did less than usual in attack, but talking about catenaccio or being under siege seems a bit excessive.

“We are enjoying the Europa League and it is a competition many teams have their eye on,” he said in a Press conference.

“We will try to win tomorrow in order to secure qualification, but it will be a battle. Tottenham are one of the strongest sides in the Europa League.”
