Sarri: "We Find Great Joy In Defeating One Of Europe's Top Teams. Throughout The Match, We Moved Like One Unit, With One Thought."

Following their victory against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, Maurizio Sarri expressed his contentment. Nevertheless, he did have a slight tinge of regret as Lazio failed to capitalize on their numerical advantage and convert it into more goals.

In a stunning turn of events, the Biancoceleste managed to pull off an unexpected victory by defeating Bayern in the opening match of the round of 16 in the 2023/24 Champions League. Last night, at the Stadio Olimpico, Sarri's squad emerged triumphant with a 1-0 win. The decisive goal came from Ciro Immobile, who expertly converted a penalty in the 69th minute.

Following the conclusion of the game, Sarri expressed his satisfaction with the tenacity and display of skill exhibited by his team, who managed to secure a victory against a formidable opponent like Bayern. Nevertheless, he did acknowledge a single flaw in his team's performance during this particular match.

"The victory was the result of relentless dedication, unwavering perseverance, and enduring hardship." said Sarri.

"Experiencing a mix of satisfaction and regret, we find great joy in defeating one of Europe's top teams, yet lament the missed opportunity in the final minutes."

"Throughout the match, we moved like one unit, with one thought. It is natural to have moments of hardship, but we also had numerous opportunities to score goals. Luckily, we were able to convert one of them."

Sarri said that the situation between Upamecano and Gustav Isaksen in the penalty box was not evident to him. However, he was concerned in the closing few minutes of the second half.

"In the last 15 minutes, we looked more concerned about bringing home a win that made the lead even wider."
