Reja hoping Lazio thrashing only blip

Lazio boss Edy Reja is hoping their 5-1 thrashing by Palermo was a blip.

The Biancocelesti were decimated by injuries and suspensions, leading to a makeshift defence with Cristian Ledesma.

"This is not the real Lazio. We had a total blackout," said the Coach after the humiliation in Sicily.

"I had to put Ledesma in defence because there were no other options, so of course we had difficulties.

"It gets worse, as Andre Dias and Francelino Matuzalem will be suspended for the next game. The only good news is that Stefano Mauri returned.

"We've got to stick together and get through this. We must turn the page and above all not let ourselves get too downhearted."
