Laurent Blanc, former Napoli and FC Barcelona player, commented on the draw for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. His two former clubs will face each other at this level of the competition. For the current coach, the match promises to be a great spectacle. However, he believes that the Catalans will have their work cut out against the Azzurri’s defensive solidity.
“I can’t say too much, I’m just saying it’s going to be a great spectacle. During my season in Naples, I discovered the culture of defense, but Italian soccer is also going through a period of evolution. Barcelona remain the showcase of Spanish soccer, but will have to deal with the Italian school of defense,” Laurent Blanc told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.
