Lazio go up against Bayern Munich with kick-off this coming Wednesday at Stadio Olimpico, Rome. This is the first leg in a round of 16 qualifying match in the Champions League.

Lazio had to sweat a little more over reaching the knockout stage than expected before settling on 10 points. Two defeats knocked the wind out of their sails a bit, and they need to show more to survive a tough assignment like Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich strolled through their group with five wins from their six matches. They quickly took hold of first place, but still managed to stay undefeated for an imperious group phase on their part.

Lazio did well to stave off their followers in their group, holding on to their second place despite a couple of setbacks. Losing twice already will have them warned of how focused to need to be at this stage to spring a surprise against Bayern Munich.

Blazing through their group in style Bayern Munich look well primed here to book their spot in the quarter-final. There is no doubt they enter this stage as favourites after such a successful campaign so far.

Lazio only average a modest 1.2 goals per game from their last ten matches in this tournament, in which they scored 12 goals. They also conceded 16 for an average of 1.6 per game. They kept their opponents from scoring twice.

Ahead of their upcoming Champions League match, Bayern Munich have an ample average of 1.6 goals per game in their last ten matches in this tournament. They scored a tolerable 16 goals, while also conceding ten times. That amounts to an average of one per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring four times.
