Fazio: “We lost the ball too much.”


Federico Fazio to SportMediaset after Atletico 2-0 Roma:

What did not work?
The first half we played well, we had good possession of the ball. In the second half, we lost the ball and this has favored them.

Did the defence take a step back?
Tonight is not the fault of the defence, we have done a great job and we have to continue this way and keep the trust.

Was it a post-Derby punishment?
No, they pressed high and we lost a lot of balls. That made the difference.

Against Qarabag, destiny will be decided.
It’s a match we absolutely want to win, the fans will help us.
