Lazio vs Bayern Munich Betting Preview | The Best Bets for the Champions League Match

Powered by

After a tough loss to Bayer Leverkusen over the weekend, Bayern Munich is looking to bounce back as they set their sights on the Champions League knockout stage, facing Lazio in Rome tonight. This defeat has put a dent in their Bundesliga campaign, leaving them five points behind in the title race and threatening their incredible 11-year domestic title run. Now, the focus shifts to Europe as they aim for their first UCL trophy in four years.

Bayern’s current form is a bit shaky, compounded by injuries and less-than-ideal performances from key players. Serge Gnabry and Alphonso Davies are sidelined due to fitness issues, while Jamal Musiala and Harry Kane haven’t been at their best upfront. Musiala hasn’t contributed to a goal in over a month, and despite Kane’s strong start to the season, he’s only netted twice in his last five Bundesliga appearances.

Lazio isn’t having an easy time either. They’re currently eighth in Serie A, managing only one win in their last four outings in all competitions. Their form has been unpredictable, with a recent downturn following a five-match win streak, which had ended a three-game slump. Both teams are facing their own challenges, making this upcoming clash an interesting one to watch.

Lazio vs Bayern Munich Score Prediction

Bayern Munich finds themselves in a bit of a rough patch, especially with their scoring ability seeming to wane recently. Facing a team like Lazio, known for their defensive approach, means Bayern will have to make the most of every chance they get in this upcoming 90-minute battle.

Despite their current vulnerabilities, it’s tough to see Bayern not coming out on top in this match against a Lazio team that’s been anything but consistent this season. Lazio’s performance has been unpredictable, and while they can surprise, their record against Italy’s top squads this season hasn’t been stellar. With only one win out of five matches against Serie A’s top four teams, Lazio hasn’t proven to be among the most formidable forces in Italian football this year.

Given these dynamics, Bayern is likely to find some form as the game progresses, potentially setting the stage for a more dominant display in the second leg of this matchup. Even with their current struggles, Bayern’s pedigree in Europe suggests they’ll find a way to navigate through Lazio’s defenses and lay a solid foundation for success in the return leg.

BetPreview Lazio vs Bayern Munich Prediction: Lazio 1 – 2 Bayern Munich

Lazio vs Bayern Munich Best Bet

Our best bet for Lazio vs Bayern Munich is Bayern Munich to Win -150 at Caesars Sportsbook.

While Bayern are “struggling” domestically by their lofty standard, the Germans have been as solid as they come in both the round of 16 and against Italian opposition.

These two teams met in the 2021 Champions League round of 16, where Bayern thrashed Lazio 4-1 in Rome before adding a 2-1 home victory to seal the deal. The reigning German champions have also won their last five matches against Italian sides and are unbeaten in their last 12 against teams from Serie A.

Lazio has struggled recently against solid opposition. Before beating Cagliari, who sit 19th in Seria A this past weekend, they fell 3-1 at Atalanta, were held to a goalless draw by Napoli and were beaten 3-0 by Inter.

Bayern will be upset about the Leverkusen match and take it out on the slumping hosts for a victory.

Lazio vs Bayern Munich 2nd Best Bet

Our best bet for Lazio vs Bayern Munich is Manuel Neuer over 2.5 Saves at Bet365 -130 (this bet is available at all top sportsbooks).

This should be a close match between two teams desperate for a win. We expect this to be a back-and-forth battle where both teams are looking to find a goal, leading to the Bayern keeper making at least three saves.

Bayern allowed eight shots on target to Leverkusen this past weekend, three to M’Gladbach the match before and seven to Augsburg the week prior.

Lazio’s front three of Felipe Anderson, Gustav Isaksen and Ciro Immobile should get their chances, only to be thwarted by Manuel Neuer.
