Fenerbahce 'confident' against Lazio

Fenerbahce have a 2-0 first leg lead, which Coach Aykut Kocaman leaves them “confident” ahead of the Europa League quarter-final with Lazio.

The Turkish side scored two late goals, including a controversial penalty, after Eddy Onazi was sent off.

“The match we played last week has left us in a good position, and we are confident. We scored two goals without conceding and we have the advantage for this last leg,” said Kocaman in his Press conference.

The second leg at the Stadio Olimpico will be played behind closed doors, as Lazio complete their two-match ban for persistent racist chanting.

“We are proud to be here but we don't want to stop now. We’re able to reach the semi-finals and we can make history, but tomorrow we will have many obstacles: Italian teams are very strong and we are away.

“Also Galatasaray showed us yesterday that all is not over after defeat in the first game.”

Last night in the Champions League Galatasaray fought back to beat Real Madrid 3-2, but still went out 5-3 on aggregate.
