Lazio vs. Bayern Munich 2024 Champions League Round of 16 Leg 1 Info

Why is Lazio a safe bet to win?

Lazio scored a couple of victories, lost twice, and drew once in their last form cycle. To put things in perspective, it’s important to look at who the losses happened against. Lazio fell to Inter, one of the top teams in the world, and Atalanta, one of Serie’s better squads.

Wins over Cagliari and Lecce impressed, while the draw came against 2023’s Serie A champ, Napoli. Lazio is playing well enough to put a scare into a Bayern squad that isn’t as dominant in 2024 as it has been in the past.

Possible Line-Up

  • Provedel
  • Romagnoli
  • Gila
  • Hisaj
  • Marusic
  • Cataldi
  • Alberto
  • Guendouzi
  • Immobile
  • Anderson
  • Isaksen

Lazio’s Last 5

  • Win: 1-3 vs. Cagliari
  • Loss: 3-1 vs. Atalanta
  • Draw: 0-0 vs. Napoli
  • Loss: 3-0 vs. Internazionale
  • Win: 1-0 vs. Lecce

Why is Bayern Munich a safe bet to win?

The 3 victories in the last form cycle, versus Unio Berlin, Augsburg, and Gladbach, were terrific. But the loss Leverkusen stung.

However, even though Bayern fell to their top Bundesliga rivals this season, it wasn’t as alarming as one might think. Leverkusen is playing like a top five UEFA League club team. Not only that, but Bayern’s roster is much better than Lazio’s.

Possible Line-Up

  • Neuer
  • Dier
  • Min-Jae
  • Upamecano
  • Goretzka
  • Pavlovic
  • Boey
  • Mazraoui
  • Kane
  • Musiala
  • Sane

Bayern Munich’s Last 5

  • Loss: 3-0 vs. Bayer Leverkusen
  • Win: 3-1 vs. Monchengladbach
  • Win: 2-3 vs. Augsburg
  • Win: 1-0 vs. Union Berlin
  • Loss: 0-1 vs. Werder Bremeno

Lazio vs. Bayern Munich Betting Prediction

Bayern is the -1.5 chalk based on reputation. The German Bundesliga power is terrific at dominating lesser opponents, but when they face a formidable team, especially if the game happens on the road, Bayern tends to fall flat.

The loss to Leverkusen is a sign Bayern’s days of dominating the Bundesliga are over. If Bayern can’t hang with a team like Leverkusen in their league, they will have trouble versus legit Champions League squads like Lazio.

For sure, Lazio’s starting 11 isn’t as good as Bayern’s. But Munich has gotten down on themselves this season. Rolling the dice on a 1-0 Lazio victory makes sense.
