Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi discussed the Biancocelesti’s upcoming Champions League clash against Club Brugge in an interview with Italian broadcaster Lazio Style Channel before the game.

Fundamental match, one of the most important of the season. We have done great things to get here, we are one step away, we do not want to let the opportunity slip out of our hands.

He commented on the pitch in the Stadio Olimpico today.

It will be heavy, wet, with the ball flowing fast. They will want to win because it is the only useful result, we will decide in the moments. We are ready, we will give everything because it must be a historic evening.

The 32-year-old Italian defender also discussed the match in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia.

We need great humility and compactness, as we have shown so far. A game from inside or outside, we want to pass this stage and we must be united more than ever. They come here with only one result in mind, we must be united until the end.

We cannot afford to make mistakes. It will be an intense, tough match, with a lot of determination on the part of the two teams. It will be hard, we’ve played a lot and I think the match will be decided by individual moments.

The 32-year-old Acerbi, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2023, has made 15 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1350 minutes.

In that time, he has provided two assists and helped the side keep two clean sheets.
