Lazio vs Bayern Munich Match Preview & Team News
The hosts got back on the winning track in Serie A last weekend after booking a narrow 1:0 win over Sampdoria. Lazio remained in the race for the top four as they are just one point behind Roma. Biancocelesti secured four victories in the previous five rounds, and they seem to be ready for the toughest challenge so far in the season. Ciro Immobile and the lads are enjoying a great streak at Stadio Olimpico with five straight wins. Simone Inzaghi’s team wants to keep up where it left off against the toughest opponent so far. Lazio ended second in the group stage, securing a place in the eight-finals in the last round against Club Brugge. Although they are underdogs in this tie, it’s going to be an exciting clash.
After winning the FIFA Club World Cup, Bayern failed to win twice. Upon their return from Qatar, the Bavarians drew against relegation-threatened Arminia Bielefeld at home. Last weekend, they lost to in-form Eintracht Frankfurt, and RB Leipzig is just two points behind them. Hans Flick’s side has been clinical in front of the oppositions’ goals, netting 62 times so far. However, Robert Lewandowski and the lads need to get back on the winning track to remain in control of both competitions. The defending European champions don’t seem to have a tough task in the first knockout round, but they need to avoid complacency. Bayern is undefeated in the Champions League for the second season in a row, and they want to keep that streak going.
