Lazio vs Bayern Munich: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online – Champions League 2023/24 

Lazio's Champions League journey gets back underway on Wednesday night with a round of 16 home game against a Bayern Munich side that are not having a great season.

Lazio welcome Bayern Munich to the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday evening for the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie.

The Laziali have undergone a difficult run of fixtures, which has seen them win twice, draw once, and lose twice against Atalanta and Inter. However, the competition for fourth in Serie A is very tight and they are only five points away from La Dea, who occupy fourth place.

Following their 3-0 loss against Bayer Leverkusen, Thomas Tuchel will be demanding more from his squad. There is a very real chance that the German heavyweights will go without a domestic trophy this season. As such, going far in the Champions League is a must.

There is a chance that Mattia Zaccagni may return for Maurizio Sarri’s side in this fixture. He has been absent since January 13, but with him scheduled to return to training this week, Sarri may opt to wait until the weekend to bring him back into the squad.

Sarri has also been boosted by potentially having Patric back in the squad. Unlike Zaccagni, he has started light training after recovering from his recent shoulder injury, and he could make the starting lineup for the game against Bayern.

This is arguably the best time to play Bayern at the Olimpico for Lazio, given they have several key players out with injury. Joshua Kimmich is set to return to the starting lineup but they will still be without Alphonso Davies, Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry.

Lazio predicted lineup vs Bayern (4-3-3): Provedel; Marusic, Gila, Romagnoli, Hysaj; Guendouzi, Cataldi, Rovella; Anderson, Immobile, Isaksen

Bayern predicted lineup vs Lazio (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Mazraoui, Upamecano, De Ligt, Guerreiro; Kimmich, Goretzka; Sane, Muller, Musiala; Kane.
