Defending UEFA Champions League champions Bayern Munich will hope to seal a place in the quarter-finals on Thursday, March 18, when they take on Serie A side Lazio in the UCL round of 16 second leg at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich team news
Despite their goalscoring form, Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick comes into this fixture with injury concerns as midfielder Corentin Tolisso, winger Douglas Costa and centre-back Tanguy Nianzou will all be absent from the second leg.
To further complicate things, veteran defender David Alaba missed Munich’s weekend win over Werder Bremen and could miss the UCL fixture as well.
Lazio team news
Simone Inzaghi, on the other hand, has a better-shaped side for the UEFA Champions League fixture. Aiming to turn around a three-goal deficit at the Allianz Arena, Lazio are only likely to miss centre-back Luiz Felipe and right-back Manuel Lazzari.
