“We Did Better Than the First Leg” — Gonzalo Escalante on Lazio’s Champions League Return Performance Against Bayern Munich

Lazio fought until the end, but Bayern Munich still held on to clinch the 6-2 UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie win.

In the second leg, Lazio put together more of a formidable performance than in the first leg. The Biancocelesti managed to score one goal and held Bayern Munich to four total shots on target.

Lazio midfielder Gonzalo Escalante is much pleased with his team’s performance in the second leg. The Argentine talent discussed his thoughts on the match in speaking to Lazio Style Channel (via La Lazio Siamo Noi).

Today we did better than the first leg but it was difficult to beat such a strong team.

We have to focus on the championship to get back to it soon. Today there were different rhythms to those of Serie A, teams like this make you run more.

Lazio now looks on towards the remainder of the season, which will feature 12 Serie A fixtures.
