Bayern Munich sporting director Christoph Freund has also commented on the draw for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. For the meeting between Bayern – Lazio, he fears the team from Rome. For him, Italian opponents are always difficult to face. However, he says his team’s mission will be to progress to the next round.
“We’re delighted to be in the last 16. Italian opponents are always difficult to face. Lazio are an expert team, with a lot of experience at European level. They’re currently struggling in the league, but they’ll be very attractive matches that we’re looking forward to playing. We hope to establish a good foundation in Rome. Our aim is of course to progress to the next round,” said Christoph Freund.
