Next Match: away to Verona, December 22
Europe: UEFA Europa League (Round of 32)
Lazio coach Vladimir Petkovic breathed a big sigh of relief in the Biancoceleste camp after his team returned to winning ways for the first time since October in Sunday's 2-0 triumph over Livorno. The Biancoceleste had gone into the match at the Stadio Olimpico on the back of two straight league losses and riding a six-match winless run in Serie A. "We really needed this win," Petkovic said. "It's a huge relief considering our disappointing run of form. Now we must give continuity to this performance." Lazio are eighth in the standings and end the year at Hellas Verona on Sunday. The Romans have failed to come out triumphant on the road this season, collecting just four points - all from draws- of a possible 24 away from home.
