'He is in a swimming pool!' - Favre fumes over controversial Lazio penalty in Dortmund draw


The Swiss coach saw his side concede a spot-kick in questionable fashion but was thankful it didn't prove too costly

Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre has hit out at the decision to award Lazio a penalty in their 1-1 Champions League draw on Wednesday.

After Raphael Guerreiro had opened the scoring for Dortmund in the 44th minute, Lazio were handed a lifeline in the 67th minute after Nico Schulz was ruled to have fouled Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the box as he went to clear the ball.

Replays showed little contact between the two as the Lazio midfielder seemingly made the most of the incident. The spot-kick was allowed to stand however, with Ciro Immobile making no mistake with his penalty.
