Harry Kane brace helps Bayern Munich turn around Lazio tie


Harry Kane scored twice as Bayern Munich overcame Lazio to reach the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.

Bayern Munich 3-0 Lazio (Bayern win 3-1 on agg.)
Goals: 1-0
Kane 38' (assist: Guerreiro), 2-0 Müller 45'+2 (assist: De Ligt), 3-0 Kane 66'

Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, Bayern had to win to have any chance of progressing. There was an early warning shot from Lazio's former Hertha Berlin midfielder Matteo Guendouzi that sailed wide, but otherwise Thomas Tuchel's men asked nearly all the questions in the first half. Jamal Musiala forced the first save of note from Ivan Provedel in the 15th minute, while some gutsy defending prevented Leroy Sané and Raphaël Guerreiro from landing shots on target. Eric Dier and Ciro Immobile flashed headers wide, before Kane broke the deadlock by stealing in to head a scuffed Guerreiro ball home. Musiala went within a whisker of doubling the lead with Bayern's next attack, but poked wide. Thomas Müller went one better in added time, glancing in a Matthijs de Ligt volley to put Bayern ahead in the tie for the first time.

Rather than chase the knockout blow, Bayern sat on their slender advantage in the early part of the second half. Risk-free, patient build-up involving Müller almost produced a third goal with an hour gone, but Guerreiro sent his low drive wide of the far post. Müller was involved again when Bayern did stretch their lead. He combined with Joshua Kimmich and Aleksandar Pavlović to set up Sané for a shot that Provedal could only parry into the path of Kane, who made no mistake from close range. Provedal pushed a Müller strike onto the woodwork and Sané sent a thumping effort wide as Bayern powered through to the last eight of a competition they're more than capable of winning for the seventh time, on this evidence.

Round of 16, 2nd leg
Round of 16, 2nd leg Allianz Arena

Full-time: Bayern Munich 3-0 Lazio

Bayern have blasted their way into the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals! They made short work of a single-goal deficit from the first leg, with a clinical Harry Kane brace and clever close-range header from Thomas Müller seeing them through with relative ease.

Four minutes of stoppage time indicated

Bayern are nearly there!

Gnabry back

More good news for Bayern as Serge Gnabry comes on for his first taste of action since December due to injury.

Bayern sitting back

The hosts are getting numbers back to thwart Lazio's somewhat limited attacking efforts, and hoping to probe on the break in the final minutes if they get a chance.

Bayern fans in fine voice

The supporters behind the goal Bayern are attacking have their scarves in the air, clearly delighted with their side's convincing showing tonight.

Comfortable for Bayern

Lazio are offering very little attacking threat despite needing two goals to force extra time.

Two changes for Bayern

There is a great reception for Thomas Müller as he leaves the field after a sterling performance from the Bayern veteran.

Chance for Lazio

Lazio's best chance of the second period sees Alberto have a testing effort deflected just off-target.

Pair of chances for a fourth!

Thomas Müller has a shot tipped onto the post by Provedal before Leroy Sané fizzes over from the edge of the box.

Game of keep ball

If Bayern had eased up on the pace a little before the third goal, now they are positively strolling. Lazio look deflated and the Bundesliga champions are calmly passing the ball around in complete control.

Kane with another!

Leroy Sané races into the box and draws a great save from Provedal with a shot guided towards the bottom corner. It runs out straight to Harry Kane, who gladly slots in from short range for his second of the night - and surely seals Bayern's spot in the quarter-finals!

Shifting down a gear

Bayern are not in a hurry when in possession now, and they are happy to sit back at times and soak up Lazio's attacking efforts. Here is another view of that brilliant second goal...

Guerreiro flashes wide

Harry Kane lays the ball out to Raphaël Guerreiro on the left on a quick attack, and the Portuguese full-back flashes a shot wide of the target.

Lazio trying

The away side ping plenty of passes around the Bayern half, without ever getting in any threatening positions.

Musiala deflected wide

A dipping effort from Musiala takes a deflection to zip wide for a corner.

Risky business for the Romans

Lazio have seen more of the ball in the second half, but if they committ too many men forward, they know they will leave plenty of space for Bayern to exploit.

Brilliant from de Ligt

The Dutch defender nips in front of Immobile to get a crucial touch to a ball into the box before the Italian striker can pounce.

Goretzka clears

Lazio have a free-kick midway in the Bayern half that is lofted towards the box but sent well clear by a powerful Leon Goretzka header.

We're back out

Bayern start the second half with one foot in the next round...

Half-time: Bayern 2-0 Lazio

That Thomas Müller goal completes a dream first half for Bayern, who are heading into the last eight of the UEFA Champions League as things stand!

Müller nods Bayern two up!

The all-important second goal comes in the final seconds of the first half! Matthijs de Ligt lets rip with a stunning volley after the ball is played out to him from a corner, and Thomas Müller just gets a head to it in the goalmouth to send it in!
+ 2

One minute of stoppage time indicated

Little has changed in the flow of the game since the opener.

Musiala just wide

Bayern have Lazio on the ropes! Jamal Musiala slides a good opportunity just wide of the target within seconds of Harry Kane's opener.

Kane gives Bayern the lead!

You can always count on him for goals, and that could be a crucial one! Raphaël Guerreiro scuffs a shot in the box and Harry Kane reacts instinctively to send a powerful header on target that Provedal gets a hand to but can't prevent landing in the net.

Immobile heads wide

Lazio's biggest chance so far sees Immobile dive at a cross in space at the far post but send his header just wide of Manuel Neuer's target.

Dier over

Joshua Kimmich clips a cross in for Eric Dier and the English centre-back heads over from a good position.

Apologies from the ref

Slavko Vinčić slips and blocks a promising Thomas Müller cutback on the edge of the penalty area, then the referee puts his hands up to apologise for that unfortunate mistake!

Bayern free-kick

Thomas Müller is fouled around 25 metres out and Joshua Kimmich clips the resulting free-kick into the box, but it is cleared comfortably.

Game on a knife edge

Bayern have really stretched the Lazio defence on multiple occasions, yet Lazio continue to get into good positions on the break.

Pair of chances

The ball runs to Jamal Musiala in the box, but his shot is blocked by a defender, before it goes to Raphaël Guerreiro, whose effort suffers the same fate.

Early salvo from Bayern

The hosts have hit eight shots already...

Battling start

Lazio have been surprisingly positive, with a few good early attacking moments, but Bayern are comfortable in possession and have dominated the past few minutes.

Musiala and Guerreiro combine

Some sparkling attacking football from Bayern as Jamal Musiala and Raphaël Guerreiro play a neat one-two on the left before the full-back clips a ball in. Harry Kane then has a shot deflected behind moments later.

Musiala draws strong save

Joshua Kimmich plays a corner short to Jamal Musiala, who curls a fierce effort on target from outside the area that Provedal saves.

Bayern under pressure

Lazio have a free-kick on the right and then a corner, but Bayern deal with both balls into the box with Thomas Müller heading the corner away. Eric Dier then makes an important interception before Vecino can reach the ball in the area.

Musiala effort blocked

Leroy Sané sprints with the ball into the box before cutting back to Jamal Musiala, whose shot from the edge of the area deflects off a defender and behind for a corner - which leads to Matthijs de Ligt heading wide.

Shots at both ends

Guendouzi shoots wide from just outside the box before Leroy Sané has a shot saved by Provedel. It has been a very open start with Bayern pushing forward but Lazio a threat on the break.

Bayern probing

Another Joshua Kimmich cross is headed clear before it can reach Thomas Müller. Raphaël Guerreiro then turns a ball in looking for Harry Kane, but again Lazio can get rid of it.

Fluent start

Early action at both ends as Joshua Kimmich chips a cross into the box for Thomas Müller, then Felipe Anderson chases down the field for Lazio before Bayern can clear.

Off we go

The visitors from Rome get us underway.

Five minutes to go...

The crunch tie is almost upon us!

The players are warming up

The stadium is filling nicely, and everything is set for a huge evening of UEFA Champions League football in Munich!

Home is where the goals are

Bayern boast 39 goals in 12 home Bundesliga matches this season, which is more than any other side in the league has scored on their own ground. They also scored six goals in their three UEFA Champions League group stage matches in Munich.

11 domestic defeats

Bayern's Bundesliga campaign is not going entirely to plan, but they have lost just four of their 24 league matches this season. Lazio, in contrast, have lost 11 out of 27 in Serie A and are ninth in the table currently.

More on those teams

Thomas Tuchel names two changes to the Bayern side that drew 2-2 at Freiburg on Friday. Leroy Sané (pictured) has recovered from a groin issue in time to replace Mathys Tel. Matthijs de Ligt is back after a domestic suspension and partners Eric Dier in central defence, with Minjae Kim on the substitutes' bench. Maurizio Sarri makes three changes to the Lazio starting line-up compared to the first leg, with Pellegrini, Vecino and Zaccagni preferred to Hysaj, Cataldi and Isaksen.

Bayern starting XI

Neuer (c) - Kimmich, Dier, De Ligt, Guerreiro - Pavlović, Goretzka - Sané, Müller, Musiala - Kane

Bayern subs

Peretz, Ulreich, Kim, Gnabry, Choupo-Moting, Zaragoza, Davies, Laimer, Tel

Lazio starting XI

Provedal - Marušić, Gila, Romagnoli, Pellegrini - Guendouzi, Vecino, Alberto - Zaccagni, Immobile (c), Anderson

Lazio subs

Sepe, Magro, Pedro, Casale, Isaken, Castellanos, Hysaj, Lazzari, Cataldi, Napolitano, Ruggeri

Reasons for hope from Rome

Bayern did not register a shot on target at the Stadio Olimpico but they did have 17 shots in total to Lazio's 11. The Bundesliga champions also bossed possession, with 61%.

A familiar face

Daichi Kamada, who spent six years at Eintracht Frankfurt, could feature again for Lazio tonight after playing the final nine minutes of the first leg in Rome. The Japanese midfielder left the Eagles for Serie A last summer.

Kane's Champions League home comforts

Harry Kane has scored 15 of his 25 UEFA Champions League goals at home (including three of his four in the competition for Bayern so far). He is just five goals short of the leading English goalscorer in Champions League history, Wayne Rooney.

Huge home advantage

In another piece of encouraging news for Bayern fans, their side are unbeaten in their last 13 European home games (W10, D3), while their Champions League record at the Allianz Arena since the start of their treble-winning campaign of 2019/20 reads 18 wins, three draws and only one defeat.


Bayern have progressed the last two times they lost the first leg of a Champions League last-16 tie. The last occasion saw them beat Basel 7-0 in Munich after a 1-0 loss in Switzerland in 2011/12.

Never say never

Win or bust for Bayern

A goal down in the tie, Bayern have to win on the night if they're to reach the quarter-finals. Victory by two or more goals inside 90 minutes would ensure the six-time winners' safe passage to the next round, but a one-goal winning margin (1-0, 2-1, 3-2 etc.) would send the tie to extra time. A draw or Lazio win, however, would see Bayern eliminated.

De Ligt demands togetherness

"Lazio are very good defensively. The important thing for us is that we get men in the box. We have to ready at all times and not concede a goal. It won't be an easy game. It's always tough to play against Sarri teams because they're always very alert. We need to be strong to win the game. I know we're having a tough spell. The game is very important, also for the whole season. We're in this spell together and have to come out of it together."

Tuchel calls for cool heads

"Patience is required. It's about not getting frustrated, not losing our heads, not completely opening up. Losing our structure against Freiburg meant we faced a lot of counter-attacks. We don't have any time to lose. We have 90 minutes. We can't wait to attack. Time is on Lazio's side. We need a mix of cool heads and emotion. You should be able to see from the start that we want to score goals."

Bayern team news

In comparison, Die Roten have a plethora of injury issues. Sacha Boey, Kingsley Coman, Noussair Mazraoui and Bouna Sarr are all definitely out, while Leroy Sané may have to sit out a second successive match with a knee problem. Serge Gnabry is in contention to feature, at least, but is unlikely to be able to play a significant proportion of the game, while Dayot Upamecano's red card from the first game means he is suspended for this one. However, Tuchel says Alphonso Davies "could play 90 minutes" after returning as a substitute against Freiburg.

Lazio team news

Sarri has close to his best team to chose from, with only right-back Patric and Nicolo Rovella unavailable to him. Immobile has not been at his brilliant best this season, but with 10 goals to his name, he is his side's top goalscorer and remains their danger man, while Luis Alberto is also one for Thomas Tuchel and Co. to keep an eye on.

Lazio form

Since the victory over Bayern, it has been a difficult few weeks for Maurizio Sarri's men. In their first game after, they were defeated 2-1 by Bologna and, while they did then beat Torino 2-0, they were subsequently dispatched by Fiorentina and AC Milan in back-to-back games.


This is the third meeting between the two sides, with all of their match-ups coming in the Champions League last 16. In 2020/21, Bayern triumphed 6-2 on aggregate, winning 4-1 away and 2-1 at home. If they do progress here, it is unlikely to be by such a comfortable margin.

The story so far

Bayern host the Italian outfit needing to win by two clear goals to progress in normal time. That is because they were defeated 1-0 in the first leg at the Stadio Olimpico, failing to register a shot on target in the process. Ultimately, Ciro Immobile's penalty was the difference between the two teams, although Dayot Upamecano's red card didn't make it easier for the visitors.
