FC Bayern visits Societa Sportiva Lazio at Stadio Olimpico for the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. The Bavarians are in great form and are the right path to defend their current title of Champions. Bayern just won the FIFA Club World Cup, given them their 6th title in a row, completing a historic sextuple; title that only one other team had in history, FC Barcelona. (You can read more about the sextuple in my article titled "FC Bayern Munich makes history but nobody talks about them")

Both teams are coming into their Champions League tie looking strong. The Romans are currently 6th in the Series A standings but, they have won 4 out of 5 last Serie A games; tying them in points with Atalanta who currently holds a Europa League place. The Germans super Giants are currently, in my opinion, the strongest team in Europe. They have consolidated and proved their superiority by winning all competitions available to them. They are currently first place, with 49 pts, in the Bundesliga despite having lost their last league game and tying the one before that.

As all Champions League games, this will not be easy for the Bavarians, but they are definitely favorites to go onto the next round.
