Lazio sports director Tare upbeat about Champions League draw

Lazio sports director Igli Tare is upbeat about their Champions League draw.

Lazio have been grouped with Zenit, Borussia Dortmund and Club Brugge.

“As a first impression, it's a very good group," Tare told Lazio Style Radio.

“Our team is capable of fighting it out with anyone, even if they have more experience in this competition. Borussia Dortmund have a great deal of experience, especially in recent years, and are doing well with their new coach. They always play attacking and entertaining football.

“Zenit are a classic Russian side, very physical. The players who make the difference there are the Brazilian Malcom and upfront Artem Dzyuba, although he had a few difficulties lately.

“As for Club Brugge, they are pleasant to watch and try to be attacking, with interesting midfielders who are also capable of scoring goals. They are regulars in the Champions League and will have their say in this group."
