14/02 Daily Predictions: Lazio vs Bayer Munich

Betting Tips

As the Champions League knockout rounds get underway, Lazio and Bayern Munich will play their first-ever last-16 match on Wednesday evening at Stadio Olimpico. The German champions have advanced to the quarterfinals for three consecutive years and are ultimately seeking for a sixth European title, while the Serie A team is hoping to make its first quarterfinal appearance in 24 years.

Lazio vs Bayern Munich

Lazio ended a three-game losing streak against Cagliari in Serie A over the weekend with a 3-1 victory. That was a crucial win for them because they wanted to regain the momentum of a five-game winning streak that had been sewn between mid-December and mid-January.

Their attention may shift back to Europe, where they have had inconsistent results this season, as they fight for a top-four position in Italy while staying out of the pack. In their last five Champions League games, Lazio has won three and lost just two; however, one of those losses occurred in their most recent encounter.

Bayern suffered just their fifth loss of the season when they were soundly defeated 3-0 by Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. It’s interesting to note that the visitors would be eager to carry on the tradition of winning after each of their previous four losses.

Their European heritage is evident to all, as they emerged victorious from Group A with an outstanding 16 points, having won five and drawn one of their games. That included winning each of their three away games, and the Bavarians intend to maintain that level of performance. Nevertheless, they have lost three of their games this season when playing away from home. This serves as a warning to the fans who are traveling.

Verdict

Bayern Munich will be looking to bounce back from a difficult loss at Bayer Leverkusen. In the competition’s group phase, the visitors made a far bigger impression and had far higher-caliber players in their ranks. Even though they no longer have the aura of invincibility at home, Bayern Munich is still incredibly strong and has a good chance of winning the first leg in Italy against Lazio, who are playing mediocrely this year.

In their last three home games, Lazio has also failed to allow any goals. This may help them stymie Bayern’s offense, which mustered only one goal on target in their crushing 3-0 loss to championship rivals Bayer Leverkusen this past weekend. In that match, Thomas Tuchel had trouble getting his strikers to play well, and he may struggle in that area once more against a team that has gone winless in nine of their previous 11 games at the Stadio Olimpico.

Lazio has a very strong home record, a strong defensive record. With a talented attacking group that includes Ciro Immobile, who has scored eight goals in his previous 11 Champions League games. This implies that they might have enough to stop Bayern from regaining the lead in Bavaria.
