Prediction: Bayern Munich vs Lazio

Prediction: Bayern Munich to win 3-0

Best Odds: 17/2

Bookmaker: Betfair

Bayern Munich and Lazio will face each other in the Champions League this week. The second leg of the Round of 16 tie at the Allianz Arena is slated to kick off at 8pm UK time on Wednesday and promises to be a good game of football.

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are the defending European champions, and the way they are going at the moment suggests that they could end up winning the Champions League for the second year in a row. The defending Bundesliga champions won the first leg of their Round of 16 tie against Lazio 4-1 away from home and are likely to book their place in the quarter-finals.

Hans-Dieter Flick’s side will head into the match against Lazio on the back of a 3-1 victory over Werder Bremen away from home in the Bundesliga. The result means that Bayern are at the top of the league table at the moment with 58 points from 25 matches, four points clear of second-placed RB Leipzig.

Team News:

David Alaba did not play against Bremen and may not be risked against Lazio. Leroy Sane could be included in the starting lineup.

Lazio

Lazio did well to progress to the Round of 16 of the Champions League this season, but it seems that they will not advance beyond it. The Italian club suffered a 4-1 defeat to Bayern at home in the first leg, and it is hard to see them hammer the German and European giants on their own turf on Wednesday evening.

Simone Inzaghi’s side will head into the match against Bayern on the back of a 3-2 victory over Crotone at home in Serie A. Lazio are seventh in the league table at the moment with 46 points from 26 matches, six points behind fourth-placed Atalanta, who have played 27 games.

Team News:

Adam Marusic is likely to start at right wing-back, while Wesley Hoedt could start in defence.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Bayern Munich have won three successive Bundesliga games since the first leg.
  • Bayern Munich are hosting Lazio for the first time in European competition.
  • Robert Lewandowski has scored four goals in the Champions League this season.
  • Lazio has scored 42 goals and have conceded 37 goals in 26 Serie A games.
  • Lazio have only won one of their past 15 away games in the Champions League

Conclusion

Bayern could field a weakened side, but they should still be able to win the second leg and book their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
