Lazio vs Bayern Munich: Can the Italians stop the Bayern winning spree?

Lazio’s group in UEFA has been a fairly generous group with Zenit, Club Brugge and Dortmund. Lazio finished second behind the Germans to qualify for the first time since 2000. While Bayern finished top of the group. 

Inzaghi’s side had to work fairly hard to secure this spot even after having one of the softest groups in the league. But then the Italisna are playing fairly well in the Italian league and may well be in-form to face Bayern on the final matchday. 

Bayern leads the way in Bundesliga and is two points ahead of RB Leipzig after a disappointing draw with Frankfurt last Saturday. Bavarians defensive vulnerability is clearly visible and Frankfurt’s strikers, Kamada and Younes, made sure to use that to their advantage. It was Robert Lewandowski and the Canadian Roadrunner Alphoso Davies that saved the day for the Germans. 

Head to Head

We all know Bayern becomes invincible in the Champions League and they remain unbeaten in their last 17 UEFA games. They recently took the club world cup too. If their defense is more fluid and organized, the offense should carry them easily to the quarter-finals. 

Lazio and Bayern have played 0 matches against each other, so far. 

Lazio in the Italian League  have scored an average of 1.80 goals per match. While Bayern stands at 2.68 goals per match. The stats show Lazio has a better defense while the Bavarians lead in the midfield and the attack section.

Bayern Munich: WWWWDL

Position in Bundesliga: 1

Team News

Lazio will miss Luiz Felipe, Stefan Radu, Silvio Proto and Thomas Strakosha due to injury. While Ciro Immobile and Correa should start the attack for them, as Inzaghi looks to exploit Bayern’s high-line defense with speed. 

On the other hand, Bayern will miss the presence of Frenchman Pavard and the joker Thomas Muller due to covid. Also, Tolisso, Gnabry, Costa, Nubel and Nianzou will not travel due to injury. 

The good news for Bayern is that Leon Goretzka and Javi Martinez have both returned from injuries, and they have the capability to boost bayerns midfield.

Key Player Matchups

Lewandowski vs Acerbi

Immobile vs Boateng

Fantasy XI

Goalkeeper: Reina

Pepe Reina has been a top class goalkeeper in the past and is in good form in Serie A. Taking him will make space for you to take more Bayern Players. 

Defenders: Kimmich, Davies, Alaba

Kimmich and Davies are always around the box. They have the maximum probability of scoring goals. While Alaba’s free kicks are well known, his defensive skills are unmatched too. 

Midfielders: Alberto, Savic, Goretzka, Lucas

Lazio’s Midfielders are in great shape and form. Even if Lazio loses, these players will earn you points through their passes, assista and shots. While Goretzka has been scoring almost every match he plays for Bayern 

Attackers: Lewandowski, Sane, Coman

The Bayern Attack Trio is famous for scoring goals. With Sane and Coman on the wings with speed, and Lewandowski in the middle with bullseye accuracy, don’t be surprised if all three of them score. 

Captain & Vice Captain Selection

Our recommendation for captain would be Sane or Lewandowski, as you can expect them to score goals. While for the VC you can select between Immobile and Coman.
