Lazio president Claudio Lotito is delighted with the impact of coach Vladimir Petkovic.

Lazio sit in third place on the table.

"Results are achieved through humility, the spirit of sacrifice, merit and respect for your opponents. We have to ensure this team plays a great game, on a par with previous outings," said Lotito.

"The great thing about Vladimir Petkovic is with him every player is a first choice. Those who might be on the bench or in the stands right now have to ensure they are ready. When their moment comes, they must prove all their worth."
