"We want to try to make the impossible possible," sports director fredi bobic told the dpa news agency ahead of schwaben's seemingly hopeless eighth-final rematch with lazio rom in the europa league. "You can give presents at easter and christmas", bobic said and coach bruno labbadia emphasized: "we are not going on a coffee trip here"."
Even the professionals do not think about giving up despite the heavy 0:2 mortgage from the home game. "Anything can happen," said captain serdar tasci before the ghost match at the stadio olimpico on thursday. "We have worked hard for the europe league. We're not going to let that go so easily."His center-back colleague georg niedermeier assured: "we're not going to let this one go. If we make it 1:0 early, a lot is possible."Goalkeeper sven ulreich clung to the platitude: "anything can happen in soccer."
