Leiva: 'Lazio are better than this'

Lucas Leiva insists Lazio ‘know that we are better than this’ after a 4-1 defeat to Bayern Munich and reassures Mateo Musacchio.

The Germans were 4-0 up before a Joaquin Correa goal gave some consolation in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16.

“We’re disappointed, because we know that we are better than this,” Leiva told Mediaset.

The deadlock was broken after just nine minutes when Musacchio’s awful back-pass gifted Robert Lewandowski the opener.

“It’s not Musacchio’s fault. He made an individual error, but we all lost by playing badly and we all go forward together.”

The second leg is at the Allianz Stadium on March 17.
