Italian journalist Mario Sconcerti discussed the Champions League Round of 16 draw between Lazio and Bayern Munich in an interview with Italian media outlet TuttoMercatoWeb yesterday.
Juve did well, Porto was perhaps the easiest. It didn’t go so well for Lazio and Atalanta. The worst thing is Bayern for Lazio, Atalanta have a chance. They are big games and this is stimulating, they have to play it quietly.
For example, Lazio. If you go out, you go out against the best team, if you win, you do it against the best. Real, on the other hand, are now a team that can be played against, even if they have big names.
Lazio’s first leg against Bayern is in the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on the 23rd February, before they travel to Germany for the return leg on the 17th March.
Both teams completed the group stages undefeated, with the Bavarian side exiting with five wins and the Biancocelesti two.
