Lazio Coach Inzaghi: “Bayern Munich Were the Only Team We Wanted to Avoid”

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi spoke about tomorrow’s Champions League clash against Bayern Munich in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today.

This match is the culmination of work that started five years ago with the help of everyone, players, club and staff. We all know what we have done and now we face the world champions.

It will be a difficult match, but we will do our best knowing that these are great games to play.

He touched on tomorrow’s opponents, Hansi Flick’s Bayern Munich.

Bayern have just been crowned world champions. It’s useless to look for weaknesses among the Germans.

I’m more concerned with my team. We’ll try to be carefree even if there’s a risk of being a bit contracted. We’ve played a lot of finals over the years and we know how to behave.

The 44-year-old Italian coach commented on his and the squad’s approach to the match.

We should be good at understanding the moments of the game. There will be times when we’ll be unprejudiced and others when we’ll have to defend a little deeper.

We want to play the game aware of our certainties.

Finally, Inzaghi discussed what he fears about Bayern Munich.

When you play against a team like that the danger comes from the moment they enter the stadium. Joking aside, they were the only team they wanted to avoid.

We’ll play our best, knowing the sacrifices we’ve made to get here.
