Chiellini: I would prefer to wait until playing Lazio again
The Bianconeri thrashed the Biancocelesti 4-0 in the Supercoppa Italiana almost a fortnight ago and the two teams face each other again in the Serie A on Saturday night.
Chiellini will be expecting Vladimir Petkovic’s side to be extra-motivated after the humiliation in the Supercoppa.
“In all honesty, I would’ve preferred to wait more before meeting Lazio again,” Chiellini said to Sky Sport Italia.
“So few days have gone by since the Super Cup and nobody thinks the 4-0 represents a realistic gap between the teams.
“We did well to make the most of the opportunities, but it will be a very difficult game.
“Plus Lazio will bring out something more to take revenge for the result, so we will have to be extremely careful. We want to continue winning in Serie A.”
