The Aquile fought back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 - including two Ciro Immobile spot-kicks.

It was a very clear match. Atalanta dominated the first half, while we dominated the second with three extraordinary scoring opportunities on top of the goals. Thomas Strakosha only made one save after the break," insisted Inzaghi in his Press conference.

Gasperini was furious in his post-match interview, claiming Immobile had 'dived' for both penalties.

I admire him as a colleague. I listen to his words, but I do not accept them, because the two penalties are clear. We lost the Champions League place twice due to refereeing incidents, so in this sport you have to accept situations and especially today, when they were very clear.

I am disappointed he decided to say these things about Immobile, as there was clear contact."

The Azzurri host Greece on Saturday evening and then take on Liechtenstein, with Euro 2020 qualification within their grasp.

Immobile said, I thank Mancini, as he waited for me to emerge from moments of difficulty and when I scored against Finland, it was like a weight off my shoulders. You will have probably noticed that in my celebration and now I can experience international duty in this extraordinary group of players in a different way.

We raised our heads, are doing well and want to win every game going towards the Euros with confidence. We don't have a particularly physical midfield, so it's important to play the ball to feet, duet with technique, open up spaces to help the wingers and midfielders.

We want the people to love this team the way we love it from the inside."

Milinkovic-Savic came off the bench, scored the equaliser and provided the assist for Ciro Immobile's winner at the Olimpico.

I didn't change the game, it was the whole team that raised the tempo. The first half was not the performance we wanted, but we won and can now prepare for Celtic," the Serb told Sky Sport Italia.

The lads wanted to give their all, we weren't able to in the first half, but the game lasts 90 minutes and it was important to get the points.

It's especially important to win when you don't necessarily play well. We now have two wins in a row under our belts and hope to get a third with Bologna this weekend."

Jeremy Morel nodded Lille ahead from a free kick.

Substitute Sergej Milinkovic-Savic changed the game, scoring one goal and providing the assist for Ciro Immobile to win it 2-1.

The first half should've been better in building out from the back, Rennes sat back to wait for us and we couldn't find the strikers," Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

We should've had more patience and we did better in the second half, winning an important game for us."

On Milinkovic-Savic, he continued: It was a good goal from Milinkovic-Savic, but regardless who plays, we need to work with our characteristics and we usually do it much better than this.

Naturally, Milinkovic and Luis Alberto are great players, but we ought to maintain our style and shape even without them. I took Danilo Cataldi off because he was on a yellow card.

We are pleased, as we lost the first game and now the group is wide open ahead of the very important double encounter with Celtic."

He is currently on loan at Belgian side Antwerp.

Hoedt said, "I made a mistake [leaving Lazio]. I had a five-year contract with them. After two years, they offered to extend it for another five, with better conditions.

Italian football culture is very professional, but everyone wants to play in the best League in the world, the Premier League, and the Southampton offered me a contract that I couldn't refuse.

Unfortunately, the club had two bad seasons and things didn't go as I thought they would."

For last night's victory over Lazio, Handanovic managed his 300th appearance in all competitions.

Forza Handanovic, you can reach and even surpass me" wrote Zenga on Instagram.

His header separated the two teams on the night.

D'Ambrosio later remarked: What counts are the three points, this is always the case. I missed from close range against Milan but luckily my mistake didn't matter in the end.

In the first half, we didn't produce what the Coach had asked from us, but then we played in a more relaxed manner and deserved the win. We could have scored a second after the restart to put the result beyond doubt, but in the end we got the three points. This is the most important thing.

I feel comfortable in any kind of role, playing as part of a five or three doesn't make any difference for me. When you have a coach like Conte, there are memorised playing patterns and you need to give 100% in every match, irrespective of the position you play in. Lazio are an experienced side and have quality in all positions. If we'd lost or drawn today, the Derby result would have meant nothing."

Danilo D'Ambrosio's header proved the winner, with Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic outstanding.

We did well in the first half and the only thing we really got wrong was not scoring one of our many chances," Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

I don't remember Thomas Strakosha making any saves in the first half and we had three or four big scoring opportunities. There are regrets, because not everyone comes to San Siro and controls the play like this.

Naturally, in the final 20 minutes we got a bit stretched out and allowed some Inter counter-attacks. We should've been more determined in front of goal, but I cannot complain about the overall approach.

We are on the right path and emerge with heads held high, albeit with zero points. We're talking about Inter, they are top of the table and won every game so far, but in terms of performance and quality of football, Lazio did better this evening."
