In this play off clash, one of the main favourites in this UEFA Champions League draw will face Lazio, who can hardly pretend on any success in this tournament. The teams approach the match having problems in their domestic leagues, which is why a solid performance in the main European cup can bring teams back on track and give a solid morale boost to the remaining part of the season. The teams met once before in 2021 again in the first playoff round of Champions League and Bayern confidently secured two wins - 1:4 and 2:1. This time, Bayern also comes to Italy being an obvious favourite and can expect themselves to be in the quarter finals.

Lazio vs. Bayern Munich Preview 

Lazio Preview

After winning silver medals in the Serie A last season, Lazio is definitely failing in this draw, currently positioned in 8th place. The 5 point gap from the Champions League zone does not seem impossible to close but inconsistency in results and unstable game challenges Mauricio Sarri’s approach to game principles this season. After having a 4 round win streak at the end of December, Lazio lost to Atalanta and had a draw with Napoli and in the last round had a confident win against Cagliari (1-3). Lazio is waiting for Bayern’s arrival in high spirits but they have to keep in mind that winning against an Italian outsider is not the same as playing against one of the best teams in Europe.

Bayern Munich Preview 

Bayern Munich brings lots of worries to its fans and board this season due to the unstable game and inconsistent results. The voices of concern regarding Tuchel’s game vision coupled with regular absence of key players are getting louder given the beginning of the most crucial part of the season. Last weekend, Bayern lost 3:0 to the main opponents in the Bundesliga, Bayer Leverkusen, and now the gap from the first place is 5 points. Unlike Bundesliga, Bayern’s campaign in Champions League is more confident, with 5 wins and 1 draw in the group stage. In the upcoming match, Tuchel will not count on Serge Gnabry, Alphonso Davies and Kingsley Coman, but at the same time all of the available players are ready to prove that the defeat from Bayer will not be repeated.

Betting Tips for Lazio vs. Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich to Win

Bayern, despite its problems this season, is still one of the favourites in this Champions League draw. Even struggling, Tuchel’s quality and coaching experience should not be underestimated. The difference in class between two teams is obvious and given the emphasis Bayern will place on the Champions League campaign, it is hard to expect that germans will not qualify into the quarter finals. William Hill evaluates this Lazio vs. Bayern Munich prediction with 1.69. 

Total Over 2.5 Goals

1.73. Bayern has one of the best attacking lines in Europe even given the absence of Coman and Gnabry. Harry Kane looks stunning this season with 28 goals in all competitions, having the backups of stars like Leroy Sane and Thomas Muller. At the same time, Bayern has defensive issues, conceding lots of goals, that is why having an exciting shootout is quite expectable. Lazio vs. Bayern Munich odds for this outcome were estimated with 1.73 at William Hill.

Goal after 75th Minute - Yes

Interestingly enough that Bayern has scored 7 of its last 8 goals in the Champions League after 75the minute. Given that the first half of the match can have an analysing scenario for both teams, it is quite possible that most of the goals will happen in the second half. William Hill evaluates this Lazio vs. Bayern Munich tip with odds of 1.85.
