Lazio vs Bayern Munich

Lazio form check

Lazio is a team that doesn’t lose a lot. At least in the Champions League, they don’t. In fact, the Italian side is yet to take a loss in the CL this season. Another curious stat is that over their last 10 matches in all tournaments, Lazio has had only wins and losses (8 victories and 2 losses).

The last one came from the hands of Inter in Serie A two weeks ago.

The current form of Bayern Munich

So Bayern just recently won the FIFA Club World Cup. But is that much of an accomplishment? It definitely is and many people doubt how hungry Bayern is after taking home the trophy. Those skeptics saw their theories being supported by the 2 winless matches that the German team played following the Club World Cup final.

We don’t want to look much into those two matches (3-3 against Arminia and 2-1 loss to Eintracht) as it was clear that Bayern was preparing for the Champions League clash with Lazio. We will just say that in the Group stage of the UCL this year, they have averaged 3.0 goals per match. Yes, this is the highest goal average of all teams in the competition.

Number of Cards in Match: Under 4.5 @ 4/5

Lazio averages only 1.3 goals over their last 5 competitive matches but these games saw the 2.5 goal line go over the total 3 times. What’s more, Bayern alone scores over 2.5 goals per match in the UCL this season. The odds give us decent value and we expect to see at least 3 goals in that match.

Lazio has had 10 yellow cards in their last 4 matches leading us to an average of 2.5 cards a game. Over their last 5 matches, Bayern has had a total of 3 yellow cards. Not an average of 3, but a total of 3.

Additionally, the referee for this match is Orel Grinfeld who has given a total of 10 cards in his 3 matches (average of 3.33) he has officiated this season in the Champions League. The line of 4.5 cards in the match looks a little steep and we have to go with the Under even though the odds aren’t out of this world.

Early Goal: Goal Before 24:00 @ 5/6

It is safe to assume that Lazio will try to score early. They have done so in the last 5 out of 7 home wins. In those matches, Lazio has had the lead before HT and has scored before 25:00. Even if they fail to do so, they may open up and Bayern Munich just might take advantage and net an early goal as well.
