Lazio coach Inzaghi frustrated after Borussia Dortmund draw

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi admitted frustration after their 1-1 draw with Champions League opponents Borussia Dortmund.

Ciro Immobile's penalty cancelled out an opener from Raphael Guerreiro on the stroke of half-time for the 1-1 draw.

“Without doubt there are regrets, as we are unbeaten, but there were some draws we felt that we could've turned into victories," Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was a good performance, a show of character, and I think in the second half especially we probably deserved more. I am pleased to have played so well against such a strong side as Borussia Dortmund on their own turf."

Lazio will reach the last 16 if they can avoid defeat to Club Brugge in the final group game.

Inzaghi added: “Our two draws in St Petersburg and Bruges were in an emergency situation, so those were very important points. We had hoped that nine points would be enough to secure qualification, something Lazio have been waiting for over 20 years."
