FT: LAZIO 1-4 BAYERN
Bayern Munich have made a decisive leap towards the Champions League quarter-finals.
Lazio endured a nightmare of a first half with a raft of mistakes that saw them conceding three goals.
Bayern picked up the lead after just nine minutes when Mateo Musacchio’s weak pass back to Pepe Reina was picked up Robert Lewandowski who sent the ball to the back of the net.
Jamal Musiala then made history as the youngest ever English scorer in the competition when his powerful shot from the edge of the box doubled his team’s lead in the 24th minute.
Lazio gave the ball away in midfield again and thus Kingsley Coman picked it up and his blocked shot led to an unmarked Leroy Sane netting the visitors’ third just three minutes before half-time.
The hosts’ mistakes continued in the second half as Sane’s pass to Lewandowski inside the box led to Francesco Acerbi getting in the way and scoring an own goal just two minutes after the referee’s whistle.
Lazio pulled themselves together and got a beautiful goal by Joaquin Correa who danced around Bayern’s defence before beating Manuel Neuer on 49 minutes.
But the Italian giants couldn’t produce anything else and are now facing a mountain of a task in Munich
