Bayern, favorites but underdogs when they visit Lazio

Under normal conditions, Bayern Munich would be a clear favorite in the tie, but if there was ever a time Lazio could sink its teeth into it, it’s now.

Because, after an eleven-year winning streak in the Bundesliga, the Bavarian giant is struggling to extend its hegemony after Saturday’s disaster (3-0) against a Leverkusen that is five points ahead. The worst is not the defeat but the image of the team, which for the first time in 30 years did not create any chances.

The German coach is recovering from injuries, though Alphonso Davies, Konrad Laimer, Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman They’re still out, and will revert to the usual 4-2-3-1 after failing with three center backs at Leverkusen.

“We have to react and we have the cards to do it,” Tuchel said yesterday. “My situation? “I have no pressure, it’s a privilege.” Bryan Zaragoza Signed in January from Granada, he could make his debut after overcoming the flu and training on Monday and Tuesday.

Sarri, true to his style

Lazio, who will face the Champions League round of 16 for the second time in the last four seasons, are not at their best either. They are eighth in Serie A but on Saturday they won at Cagliari (1-3) and recovered their spirits after three games without a win.

“We have to think that it is not impossible. If we think about it, we have already lost,” he said. Maurizo Sarri, that he will maintain his offensive method: “We play our game, without thinking twice,” he said.
