Published Add your comment

Lazio coach Delio Rossi remains upbeat about his team´s Champions League ambitions despite the Italians being held to a 1-1 home draw by Dinamo Bucharest on Tuesday.

Lazio midfielder Massimo Mutarelli equalised Ionel Danciulescu´s opener in the first leg of the Champions League third qualifying round at the Stadio Olimpico. The Romans had to overcome the dismissals of Mutarelli and Valon Behrami as well as injuries to Gigliermo Stendardo and Emilson Cribari.

"Everything is still to play for," said Rossi, whose team travel to Bucharest on August 28 for the return leg. "Although we have to go to Romania for the second leg we still have a 50% chance of progressing to the next round."
