|The hosts from Rome are not in great condition but the same thing is valid 100% for the guests from Germany. The team from Munich lost the 1st place in the Bundesliga to Xabi Alonso's team after a demolishing 0-3 defeat at Lverkusen. Meanwhile, Lazio manage to win their away game at Cagliari 1-3 and the team is currently 8th in Serie A as the Champions League spots are only 5 points away. Lazio only lost one home game at Olimpico in all competitions this year. Thomas Tuchel knows that he is being closely monitored and his team is not quite on track right now. Lazio could take an advantage of this very fact, even though they hardly have any experience in the knockout phase of this tournament. The team reach this round for the third time as in the last time in 2021 they were eliminated exactly from Bayern Munich. In any case, things were anything but boring for the Eagles in the group phase. Sarri's team have 7 wins from 18 games against German teams.
