Hernanes confident of beating Spurs

Lazio midfielder Hernanes is confident his side can defeat Tottenham on Thursday and qualify from Europa League Group J.

The Brazilian playmaker is positive that the Biancocelesti can overcome the north London club at Stadio Olimpico, but admits that Spurs do pose a real threat.

“We have had several good results recently,” he told Lazio Style Radio. “And we will be sure to go on to the field and play with the right attitude.

“If we win, we will qualify for the knockout stages, so we'll have to concentrate. Spurs put us in a lot of difficulty at their place, because they are both strong technically and tactically.

“But if we play like we know we can, with the ball on the ground, then we shouldn't have any problems.”
