“It’s crucial we score, as in the away leg it is more important to score a goal than to keep a clean sheet,” the goalkeeper told Rai Sport.
“We want to put in a strong performance and get a positive result. The team is growing in form and confidence, we’re in a strong period right now and have to continue that.”
These sides already met in the semi-final last season and Milan went through on penalties after two 0-0 draws.
“Lazio have always caused us problems, they’re playing on home turf and I wouldn’t say they are struggling. It’s going to be a hard-fought match where details make the difference.”
