Hernanes pleased with EL draw

Lazio midfielder Hernanes has insisted that their 3-3 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach is a good result.

The capital club secured a first-leg draw after Libor Kozak netted a 94th minute equaliser.

And the Brazilian playmaker has admitted that the away goals are vital in European competition.

“We got a good result,” he told Globoesporte. “It may have only been a draw but away goals count for an awful lot in the Europa League.”

The 27-year-old also commented on his head-guard, that he has to wear on medical advice after being knocked unconscious against Juventus in January.

“I do not like to miss out on any games. It has to be something really serious for me to sit on the sidelines.

“But I feel very good now after being out.”
