Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi lauded his players for a great performance, after their 2-0 win over Bologna away from home on Sunday.
Ciro Immobile netted a brace for the visitors to secure victory and lift the Aquile into fourth position in the Serie A standings.
Inzaghi was impressed by what he saw from his team and believes the players showed maturity to grab three points on the road.
"It was not a simple match, as in recent weeks Bologna hadn't picked up the results they deserved," Inzaghi told Mediaset Premium.
"It took a great Lazio performance and I tip my hat to the lads. We should've finished the first half with more than one goal, but Antonio Mirante made a great save on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
"Coming here to Bologna and allowing practically no chances is a sign of real maturity. When I saw Bologna had moved to three at the back, we adjusted accordingly, because we, fortunately, have an intelligent and versatile side.
"We want to stay up there, in 29 games this season we only deserved to lose against Juventus and Torino. Lucas Biglia had a muscular problem and asked to come off, I hope it's nothing serious, because it'd be a real shame to lose him now."
