After a complicated week, Bayern Munich move to Lazio to play their round of 16 first leg of the Champions League.
It’s the crisis in Bayern Munich ? Two games in a row without a win is unusual in Bavaria. When entering the final phase of the Champions League, the Germans know a slight blow less well. But this could be explained by the fatigue accumulated over the past few weeks. On Saturday, Bayern lost in the Bundeskiga in Frankfurt (2-1), and sees Leipzig approaching dangerously in the standings.
For the meeting facing the Lazio, Corentin Tolisso, Serge Gnabry and Douglas costa will be unavailable. Furthermore, Benjamin Pavard and Thomas Müller, positive for Covid, will not be able to participate in this first round in Italy either.
Tonight it will be second time in its history, only that Lazio play a knockout phase match in the Champions League. The first corresponded to the discovery of the Roman club of the competition, 21 years ago in 1999-2000.
Lazio is currently 6th in Serie A, one point away from qualifying places for C1. Coach Simone Inzaghi relies on his striker Ciro Immobile, to try to achieve the feat against the reigning champions. Because Bayern remains on 17 matches without defeat on the European scene (16 wins, one draw), a record.
The meeting between Lazio Rome and Bayern Munich will be broadcast this Tuesday on RMC Sport 2 at 9 p.m.
The probable composition of the two teams for this match:
Lazio Rome : Reina – Patric, Musacchio, Acerbi – Lucas Leiva, Marusic, Correa, Lazzari, Milinkovic-Savic – Immobile, Luis Alberto
Bayern Munich : Neuer – Süle, Boateng, Kimmich, Hernandez – Sané, Alaba, Goretzka, Coman, Davies – Lewandowski
