Lazio vs Bayern Munich Prediction & Match Preview

Lazio vs Bayern Munich
Europe – UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 23 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).

After qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages for the first time since 2000, Lazio will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Bayern Munchen at their Stadio Olimpico. 


The Biancocelesti are on a seven-game winning run at home in all competitions, but they will have a big fish to fry in Tuesday’s football match. 

The likes of Thomas Strakosha, Luiz Felipe, and Stefan Radu are all sidelined with injuries, while Andreas Perreira is a major doubt.

The Bavarians, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt. 

Hansi Flick’s troops are on a quest to defend their Champions League trophy, but seeing that they have been struggling at the back of late, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. 

Douglas Costa, Corentin Tolisso, Serge Gnabry, and Alexander Nubel are all injured, while both Benjamin Pavard and Thomas Muller have been tested positive for coronavirus.

Corentin Tolisso, Serge Gnabry, Douglas Costa, Alexander Nubel and Tanguy Nianzou will not travel due to injury.
