Former AC Milan full back Massimo Oddo discussed tomorrow’s Champions League Round of 16 clash between Lazio and Bayern Munich in an interview with Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today.

Bayern are an army, a real battleship, but believe me, apart from their values and experience, Lazio, this Lazio, are a great team to play against. I’m more than convinced of that. Of course, if the Germans take them lightly…

The 2006 World Cup winner could not give any advice to coach Simone Inzaghi.

He doesn’t need any. He’s played many games like this, like me, so he knows very well what to do and what to tell his players. As a player I can only say that they mustn’t be afraid, they must play openly.

Finally, Oddo touched on some Biancocelesti players that can cause trouble for Bayern tomorrow.

With players like Luis Alberto, Milinkovic-Savic and Immobile they can make even Bayern anxious.

Protagonist? Immobile, he will be motivated by the challenge with Lewandwoski and then in the spaces he can be devastating for the German defense.
