Bayer’s Florian Wirtz complains about Roma’s attitude in semifinal first leg

Andy Mattioli

Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Florian Wirtz sounded upset with the way Roma approached their home victory in the first leg of the EL semifinal.

“The return leg will not be easy. I wouldn’t say it’s an impossible task but definitely not easy because of the goal we conceded,” Wirtz told

“As expected, Roma made the most of every contact by losing a minute or two and the referee allowed it but it was to be expected. A pity, however, that there was no real pace to the match. They disrupted the flow of the game.”
