Lazio coach Inzaghi: Bayern Munich? We just need to do our best

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi says they're prepared to compete every second against Bayern Munich.

Lazio host Bayern at the Stadio Olimpico in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 stage tomorrow.

"It's beautiful, it's the culmination of five years of work together with a wonderful group," Inzaghi said at a press conference.

“We'll try to play the game with the right carefree attitude and the usual humility," the coach added.

“Bayern just became World Champion, they picked up a draw and a defeat in their last two games, but after five straight wins.

"For a long time we knew we had to live a similar night. We've been thinking about it since yesterday. This game is the icing on the cake for the job we've done and I'm working on the strengths of Lazio rather than on Bayern's weaknesses.

“We will try to do the best we have always done.

"We want to remain in race in all ways. We know they are almost unplayable, but it happened to do well in the past, despite not being the favourites.

“We are mature, we have played many finals and the quarter finals of Europa League last season."
