The second leg of the Champions League round of 16 kicks off on Tuesday night with defending champions Bayern Munich traveling to Lazio while Atlético Madrid and Chelsea face off in Bucharest.

Chelsea and Atlético Madrid face off in Bucharest. The meeting, initially scheduled in Madrid, was moved to the Romanian capital due to restrictions put in place by the Spanish authorities for travelers from Great Britain. A change that does not suit the Colchernos who have lost only one of their last 29 home games on the European stage.

Diego Simeone’s troops, however, lost at home on Saturday against Levante (0-2) in the league while the Blues, now led by Thomas Tuchel, remain on a 1-1 share on Southampton.

Ten days after winning the Club World Cup in Qatar, Bayern Munich are continuing their defense of their European title, won last August, at Lazio Rome. A game the Rekordmeister did not prepare in the best possible way with a 2-1 defeat at Frankfurt on Saturday in the league. In addition, the Bavarians are deprived of Benjamin Pavard and Thomas Müller, positive for the coronavirus, but also of Serge Gnabry, Corentin Tolisso and Douglas Costa, injured.

Lazio, for its part, wants to thwart the predictions against the German club. The Italians had won their ticket to the round of 16 at the last minute after a 2-2 split against Club Brugge on the 6th and last day of the group stage. Fifth in Serie A, Simone Inzaghi’s troops are in good shape with three wins in their last four league games, including a 1-0 victory over Sampdoria on Saturday.

0-1 (Lewandowski)

0-2 (Musiala)
