Lazio is set to take on FC Bayern Munich in a monumental UEFA Champions League Round of 16 clash. This will be Lazio’s second appearance in the Champions League knockout stage and more so, the tie that will be one of its most notable challenges in recent seasons.

Former Italian midfielder Antonio Lopez is very much looking ahead to this tie between the two sides. Lopez sees Lazio as the underdogs in the tie but does believe that the Biancocelesti has the potential to pose a challenge to the Bundesliga powerhouse.

Former Lazio midfielder Lopez previewed this upcoming Champions League tie, with comments being relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

The match against Bayern is an attractive one. I put myself in the shoes of the players … facing such a team will certainly be a satisfaction. The Germans are aware that they are a very good match but at the same time, I believe that they will not underestimate Lazio.

It will not be easy for them either. There are eleven of them and eleven of us. Lazio has substance and can also face this team here, I don’t mean equal, but with serenity.

They certainly have more to lose. Lazio will enter the field to play their game. You have to frighten your opponent; the Biancocelesti are able to do it.

An upset win in this tie for Lazio would be historic.
