On October 16, Beijing time, according to the content released by Football Italia, Conte said that AC Milan played very well in the second half of last season and this is a very strong opponent. Sanchez is experiencing muscle fatigue and is not sure if he can play in the Milan Derby.
Conte said: "We will try to do our best in all competitions. The value of all single league games is 3 points. Derby games will bring greater difficulties. We are facing a strong Opponent, AC Milan played very well in the last few months of last season. Lazio's performance is also good, but the path we are currently walking, we hope to continue it, we are only just at the beginning of the journey.
"From now to the end of the season, there are countless important games. No matter what the circumstances, I always hope that the team can grow. The two Chilean players in the team are the latest to return, but if you are in the country If the team plays well, then when you return to the team, your mental state will be very good.
"We want to prepare for the game in a good way. Do I have a choice (the national team and the club match are so close)? I want an extra day of rest (but I can't do it). International game days always happen. Appearing on the schedule, we need to respect it and adapt to it.
"We need to be ready for the game today. We have no other choice. We will try to do our best. I did not put too much pressure on the players. They just returned to the team. Sanchez is currently suffering from muscle fatigue. We will do some assessments in today’s training session, and we will pay special attention to this. We also need to consider that we will play 7 games in 3 weeks.
"If Sanchez's body is already 100% okay, then he will be an option (only from the technical and tactical level to consider whether to send him out). Otherwise, I would rather wait for the next game ( Sanchez was only sent out). But now I have not ruled out any possibility.
"We are now going through a difficult period (coronavirus), we seem to forget this very quickly, and I feel sorry. A new and complex stage is back, so we need to be united and we must move forward together. . To complain about who is absent, to blame who must be punished, saying that these are useless."
