Le Aquile will look to end their winless record against the Bavarians

Lazio have reached the Champions League knockout stage for only the third time, securing a second-place finish in Group E behind Atletico Madrid. Despite finishing second in Serie A last season, Maurizio Sarri’s team currently sits outside the top five in the league. However, a recent 3-1 victory against Cagliari over the weekend likely boosted team morale as they prepare for the first leg against Bayern.

Despite the painful Bundesliga defeat against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday, Bayern Munich have an opportunity to regroup with an upcoming trip to Rome to face Lazio. The Bavarian giants entered this stage of the elite European club football competition, Group A, with a nearly flawless record, winning five and drawing one of their six encounters to comfortably top the section.
