Pepe Reina has admitted tomorrow’s Champions League match with Club Brugge "is like a final" and talked about one thing that surprised him about Lazio.

Lazio

are seeking to qualify for the Champions League last-16 stage and if they draw with Club Brugge at the Stadio OIimpico tomorrow they would qualify for the next stage.

"

It’s a special game, it tastes like a final, but we’ll have to have fun and do the things we try during the week

,"

Lazio

goalkeeper said at a press conference.

They like to keep the ball possession and make you run, but we must have the humility to accept that the game will have more moments,

” he continued.

"

This is a club that want to make a further step in terms of quality and fight every year for the Champions League. Surely, what I like about the team is the compactness and the desire to never give up, the great mental strength

."

None of us is above anyone else. The team and the club come first compared to each footballer."

"

We all work to play as many games as possible. I have a good relationship with Thomas, we learn from each other. I’ve always said I came here to help both on and off the pitch, then we’ll see.

"

Strakosha and I can play at any time. In addition, I think that Thomas is a phenomenal goalkeeper for the concentration that he puts in every training session.
