Lazio vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips
While Bayern Munich can still lay claim to being the most formidable team in Europe, we are not going to tip the German champions to win this first leg at the Stadio Olimpico, especially at such a short price against decent opponents.
Hansi Flick has rarely put a foot wrong since replacing Niko Kovac at the Allianz Arena, although Bayern are not completely bombproof and they might find life difficult against opponents who will want to generate a first leg advantage.
Bet on Lazio to Make Life Hard For Bayern
Lazio will not want to go to the Allianz for the Champions League without some kind of positive result, with Simone Inzhagi’s team starting the group stage with an impressive win over Borussia Dortmund, while they actually then went unbeaten for the remainder of their games.
Ciro Immobile is a sharp shooter who continues to boast an impressive goals record for the Serie A team, although the Azzurri will have to improve on the defensive front and their domestic record on home soil hasn’t been strong this term.
Should Bayern Be Such a Short Betting Price for Lazio Clash?
There will be many punters putting Bayern Munich in their Champions League accumulator bets and it might be the case that the European champions are too strong, although they’ve had a couple of hiccups during the 2020/21 season.
At the time of writing, the Bavarian side have dropped points in four of their eleven matches and they have recently been held to draws by Leipzig and Union Berlin despite the team dripping with quality all over the pitch.
Teenager Jamal Musiala has come into the team and our prediction is that he’ll have an increasing impact for Bayern this season, with Leroy Sane offering a Plan B from out wide although we’re going to plump for a draw in this clash.
