Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster insists he is not concerned about who they will face in the last 16 of the Champions League after seeing his side seal top spot in Group C.

First-half goals from Julio Baptista, Raul and Robinho set Real on their way to a 3-1 home win over Lazio on Tuesday, and they finish just above Olympiacos in the standings due to their better head-to-head record against the Greeks.

"For me it was very important to remain first in the group. I am not worried about the opponent we are going to face. We know that they are all difficult," he said. "To have obtained first place and to play the second match at home is the most important thing."
