Lazio coach Inzaghi delighted with victory over Marseille

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi was delighted with their Europa League win over Olympique Marseille.

Marco Parolo and Joaquin Correa struck in Lazio's 2-1 win.

"The lads did well, we picked up six points from two games against Marseille and it's the second season in a row we're qualified with two matches to spare," Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

“We wanted this qualification and thoroughly deserved it. It was a difficult group and Marseille were in the Final last season, while Eintracht Frankfurt have a perfect record.

“Marseille's passing caused us problems in the first half, yet we allowed them practically no chances. To be honest, their tactical changes surprised us, as they'd never played with a five-man defence before and we had to change everything that we had prepared.

“In a way, we were helped by the fact we'd played SPAL last week and they had a similar approach to the one Marseille used this evening."
