Lahm: We should avoid Real Madrid counter-attacks

TOP 10 most valuable right backs in the world philipp lahm

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm thinks they should mostly avoid the counter-attacking power their Champions League quarterfinal opponents Real Madrid possess.

“The Champions League is such a tough competition,” Lahm told Kicker ahead of the Wednesday first-leg against Real Madrid.

“We have to avoid being counter-attacked like we were the last time we played against them.

“This team has had to get used to not having the ball sometimes and knowing that it is okay for the opposition to have it.

“If the defense each maintains our position, then we have the possibility to avoid being countered,” the right-back concluded.
