Lazio Sporting Director Tare on UEL Group Draw: “This Is a Champions League Group”

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare highlighted the difficulty of Lazio’s Europa League Group this season.

Speaking to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Albanian sporting director was a little taken aback by the difficulty of Group E, but was still positive about the Roman club’s chances.

This is a Champions League group, but we are aware of what we can do.

Lazio have been drawn in Group E alongside Lokomotiv Moscow, Olympique de Marseille and Galatasaray. 

All four teams are noted for their electric fan support, so the return of fans this season means that the Biancocelesti faithful will need to be loud in the Stadio Olimpico in order to hold their own against their European counterparts.

Biancocelesti coach Maurizio Sarri won the Europa League with Chelsea in his solitary season in London, and his experience is likely to prove invaluable in this campaign.

The Roman club reached the Round of 16 in the Champions League last season, before losing to European giants Bayern Munich.
