But in five matches, they have scored a shocking eighteen goals.
In a interview with TZ newspaper, Lahm says his team hopes for a big win today. “The goal must be to progress as group winners. It will be difficult but the fun begins against Valencia.” He also told news “They are a top team that almost always plays in the Champions League so they are just behind Real Madrid and Barcelona. It will be a real test and certainly they are the toughest opponents in the group.”
