UCL quarterfinal Bayern Munich vs Lazio – Bayern Munich completed the process before the Lazio 1-4 after the first leg and certified its presence in the quarter-finals of the Champions League with another win against the Italian side (2-1), this time signed with goals Robert Lewandowski and Choupo-Moting in a duel at the Allianz Arena.
Hansi Flick’s team, which has five consecutive wins, remains the leader of the Bundesliga and is intractable in the ‘Old Continent’. A team capable of handling the rival to its liking and that this Wednesday had no qualms about looking for a totally unnecessary victory after the bulky victory in Rome.
The Munich people came out to pressure their rival, to play in the opposite field and not deny the ball. Lazio’s first response was good, but it soon waned.
The wide mattress of the premises was the best guarantee to play with joy and for the local coach to do some tests, among them the young Nübel in the goal instead of Manuel Neuer.

The first to try his luck was Sané with an arched shot that served as a warning for veteran Pepe Reina. After a few minutes, Milinkovic-Savic, the best of the Italians, replied, but it was of little use to Simone Inzaghi’s team, who saw how the 1-0 fit after half an hour with an absurd penalty.
Vedat Muriqi ran over Leon Goreztka, but with little intensity. However, the referee understood that it was a penalty and decreed the maximum penalty. Robert Lewandowski did not miss from eleven meters and put his team ahead, who did not settle for 1-0. That was the best win for the Germans this Wednesday.
UCL quarterfinal Bayern Munich vs Lazio – Wake up Lazio
Lazio had a very clear chance before the goal, in the boots of former Sevilla player Correa, but without assimilating it, they conceded the 2-0 after a chopped shot from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting assisted by Alaba. The tie was already more than decided, but Bayern reproduced – very fiercely – their ambition for more and more.
The Italians did not want to leave empty and ended up finding the goal of honor in a header from Marco Parolo in a foul in three-quarters of the field. The game died at 2-1 and Bayern Munich will be where it deserves to be as great favorites to revalidate the most coveted title in Europe.
