Lazio team manager Angelo Peruzzi warns Dynamo Kiev won’t be an easy tie - “they’re young, with a lot of lads who want to break through”.
The Biancocelesti were drawn against the Ukrainian side in this afternoon’s Europa League Last 16 draw, with the first leg at the Stadio Olimpico on March 8.
“I sent a message to Coach [Simone] Inzaghi straight away, but I think he was watching the draw on TV,” Peruzzi explained to Sky after the draw.
“He hasn’t responded yet, he might already be studying the Dynamo Kiev players.
“At this point the teams you face are all strong, some are more strong and some less so, but all of them can cause you problems.
“Dinamo are a difficult team, they’re young, with a lot of lads who want to break through.
“It’s clear that in the Europa League there are no pushover teams anymore, not even in the group. You have to sweat and play every game like a final.”
