Lazio have won seven of their last eight matches in Serie A. Their five match winning streak was snapped in a 3-2 defeat at Atalanta in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals. Simone Inzaghi’s side returned to Serie A and got some revenge in a 3-1 win at Atalanta. Lazio then won 1-0 at home against Cagliari with Ciro Immobile scoring the winner. Lazio lost 3-1 at Inter Milan after having 65% possession and 14-12 shots. They won 1-0 at home against Sampdoria on Saturday with Luis Alberto on target. Goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha, centre back Luiz Felipe and striker Felipe Caicedo are injured. Attacking midfielder Andreas Pereira missed the Sampdoria match with a fever and will be assessed. Ciro Immobile has scored 18 goals in his last 23 matches in all competitions.
Bayern Munich’s return to Germany after the FIFA Club World Cup has not gone well. The Bavarians drew 3-3 at home against promoted club Arminia Bielefeld. Hansi Flick’s side travelled to Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday and lost 2-1. Robert Lewandowski pulled a goal back in the 53rd minute but they couldn’t find an equaliser. Lewandowski is in sensational form, scoring 16 goals in his last 15 matches in all competitions. Bayern Munich are missing right back Benjamin Pavard and attacker Thomas Müller who recently tested positive for corona virus. Midfielder Corentin Tolisso is injured alongside wingers Douglas Costa and Serge Gnabry.
