Sarri: "It's A Positive Outcome For Us, As A Team That Competes At This Level In The Tournament, Showcasing More Victories Than Defeats. Our Performance In Serie A This Season Hasn't Been At Our Best, So We'll Shift Our Focus To That And Aim To Recover."

Lazio exited the round of 16 in the 2023/2024 Champions League following a defeat by Bayern Munich, losing 0-3 at the Allianz Arena. All three goals were scored by Harry Kane (2) and Thomas Muller, resulting in a 1-3 aggregate loss for Lazio.

Maurizio Sarri, Lazio's coach, admitted his team's inability to overcome Bayern's resilience, though he viewed the experience as valuable for future progress. Sarri noted Lazio's competitive first-half performance but lamented the second goal, which dashed their hopes. 

"We stayed in the game until the second goal, and we had an opportunity to take the lead. I don't believe 1-0 would crush our ambitions, but the second goal sent us into the dressing room dejected and lacking faith that we could turn things around." Sarri told Sky Sport Italia.

Sarri acknowledged the disparity in quality levels but deemed Lazio's Champions League campaign overall positive, given their competitiveness. Looking ahead, he emphasized the need to focus on Serie A and strive for improvement. 

"Certainly, it's a positive outcome for us, as a team that competes at this level in the tournament, showcasing more victories than defeats."

"Regrettably, our performance in Serie A this season hasn't been at our best, so we'll shift our focus to that and aim to recover."
