Apollon: 'Lazio underestimated us'

Apollon Limassol Coach Christakis Christoforou believes Lazio “underestimated us” in their 0-0 Europa League draw.

“This evening we played against the strongest side in the group, not to mention the holders of the Coppa Italia,” said the tactician in his Press conference.

“This season the Italian clubs have even more motivation to do well, as the Europa League Final will be in Turin.

“That’s why I am so happy with this draw. The result was deserved and achieved thanks to the grit of our players and the support of our fans.

“Vladimir Petkovic didn’t expect to see such a strong Apollon. Perhaps he underestimated us.”

Trabzonspor are top of Group J with seven points, followed by Lazio on five, Apollon four and Legia Warsaw 0.
