Lazio vs Bayern Munich LIVE: Stream FREE, TV channel, team news for big Champions League clash
GOOD EVENING FROM ROME
Welcome to our live coverage of the Champions League clash between Lazio and Bayern Munich at the Olimpico.
The Serie A giants will look to stun the reigning European champions in the first leg of their last-16 knockout tie but will have to do it with various absences.
Luiz Felipe, Stefan Radu, Thomas Strakosha and Silvio Proto are still dealing with an ankle, hernia, knee and an arm problem respectively.
But Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi still has the pacey attacking duo of Ciro Immobile and Joaquin Correa to exploit Bayern’s high defensive line.
The 2019-2020 Champions League winners are not without key absences either as Benjamin Pavard and Thomas Muller are both sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19.
Corentin Tolisso, Serge Gnabry, Douglas Costa, Alexander Nubel and Tanguy Nianzou are also nursing a tendon, hamstring, foot, ligament and muscle injury respectively.
But it’s not all doom and gloom for Bayern manager Hansi Flick as Leon Goretzka and Javi Martinez both returned from injury recently and could feature in the starting line-up.
Much of the German giants’ attack is going to depend on Kingsley Coman and Leroy Sane’s creativity in the wings and of course Robert Lewandowski’s lethal goalscoring prowess up front
