Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham discussed yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Lazio in the Champions League in an interview with after the game.

We learned in the first match that Lazio are a top team. We were able to face them well physically, we had our chances and in other circumstances we would have even won.

The Biancocelesti’s draw against their German opposition yesterday leaves them second in the group table after five games, one point behind Lucien Favre’s side.

A point against Belgian side Club Brugge next week is enough to guarantee qualification to the next round, a great achievement for coach Simone Inzaghi and his side, who returned to the Champions League after a 13-year absence.

In the league, Lazio are currently ninth after nine games, sitting on 14 points, three behind rivals Roma. Their next game is against newly promoted Spezia this weekend, an important game as Inzaghi cannot afford to waste any more points.

The Roman side’s form has been a little inconsistent in the league this season, with strong results like a 1-1 draw against Juventus or a 4-3 win over Torino, and poor results like the loss to Sampdoria or Udinese.
