Lazio's Del Nero: We will destroy Barcelona

Lazio midfielder Simone Del Nero is delighted to be in the Champions League pot for today's draw - and hopes they're grouped with Barcelona.

"Ten minutes before the end of the first half, Delio Rossi put me on the right," he explained after their victory at Dinamo Bucharest on Tuesday night. "Before that I was having a terrible game, but then things started to improve.

"This is a dream - an indescribable joy. To think that this time last year I was playing in Serie B in front of 2,000 fans. Now I can't wait for the Champions League. I want to draw Barcelona so we can destroy them!"
