Lazio vs Bayern Munich live stream: How to watch Champions League fixture online and on TV tonight

Lazio host Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie tonight.

The Serie A side finished second to Borussia Dortmund in the group stage, although they only narrowly survived a scare against Club Brugge in the final round of fixtures. After a poor start to their league campaign, Simone Inzaghi’s side come into the knockout tie in fine form, having won seven of their last eight league matches, seeing the club rise back into the top four.

Defending champions Bayern Munich will provide daunting opposition, though, having taken 16 points from a possible 18 in the group stage. However, Lazio will glean hope from the Bavarians suffering something of a slump from their usually imperious standards, with Hansi Flick’s side seeing their Bundesliga lead reduced to just two points.

Nevertheless, despite several absentees, including Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry, Bayern remain imposing favourites, with Robert Lewandowski in typically spectacular form up front.
