Lazio vs Bayern Munich: how and where to watch - times, TV, online

Lazio and Bayern Munich will complete Tuesday’s Champions League round of 16 fixtures in a first leg match that will be played at Stadio Olimpico, Rome.

Simone Inzaghi’s men are sixth in the Serie A standings, with 43 points, (tied with Atalanta, fifth), although they are only one point behind the top four. In their last match they managed to beat Sampdoria and go into the match against Bayern in good form.

Bayern need to improve their game...

Meanwhile, it seems Bayern have still not recovered from the FIFA Club World Cup “hangover”, as they were not able to beat Arminia Bielefeld at home (3-3) and suffered a defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt (2-1) in their last Bundesliga game.

The Bavarians are still leading their domestic competition, though, with 49 points in 22 matches, two more points than RB Leipzig and seven more than Wolfsburg and Frankfurt.

...but in Champions they look unbeatable

Even if Bayern have had some problems lately in the German championship, they have proved they are almost invincible in Europe, as their numbers prove: they are unbeaten in their last 17 Champions League games.

Moreover, they comfortably topped Champions group A, taking 16 points out of 18 possible, with just one draw in six matches (against Atlético Madrid in the Spanish capital).

Lazio, on the other hand, finished second behind Borussia Dortmund in Group F to qualify for the round of 16 for the first time since 2000.

The Italian hopes on Immobile and Correa

There are some injury concerns for Lazio, as the Italian side will probably be without Luiz Felipe, Stefan Radu, Thomas Strakosha and Silvio Proto due to injury.

However, two of their main players, Ciro Immobile and Joaquín Correa, will feature in the starting XI.

Flick's long list of unavailable players

Meanwhile Hans-Dieter Flick won’t be able to call upon Benjamin Pavard and Thomas Muller, as they recently tested positive for coronavirus.

Moreover, Corentin Tolisso, Serge Gnabry, Douglas Costa, Alexander Nubel and Tanguy Nianzou haven’t travelled to the Italian capital due to injury.

Leon Goretzka and Javi Martínez could feature from the start in midfield after recovering from their injuries. Robert Lewandowski will be, once again, Bayern's main menace in attack.
