The current champions of the Champions League and the world, Bayern Munich, advanced their classification to the next stage of the European competition on Tuesday (23).
The Bavarian team visited Lazio and beat the Italians 4–1 in the first leg of the round of 16, with goals from Robert Lewandowski, Jamal Musial, Leroy Sane and Francesco Acerbi (against). Joaquín Correa took it to the homeowners.
The Polish striker voted the best player on the planet last season and the top scorer in the last edition of the Champions League, reaching an important milestone by swinging the nets at the Olympic Stadium in Rome.
With goals against Lazio, Lewandowski reached 72 in the competition and overtook Real Madrid’s Raul Gonzalez to establish himself as the tournament’s third top scorer, behind Cristiano Ronaldo (134) and Lionel Messi (119).
Italy’s win was also special for Jamal Musiala, who scored Bayern’s second goal in the rout. At 17 years and 363 days, he became the youngest Englishman to score in the Champions League.
The teams will meet again on 17, in Munich. The German team can lose by two goals difference (or from 3 to 0) which guarantees classification on Wednesday.
Also on Tuesday, Atletico Madrid faced Chelsea in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 in Bucharest. Due to the Kovid-19 epidemic, travelers from the United Kingdom departed in Romania due to restrictions imposed by the Spanish government.
French striker Olivier Giroud scored a 1–0 winning goal for the English team on the debut of German coach Thomas Tuchel with the club in the tournament. Giroud took advantage of Atletico’s inaccurate pass of his defense and, by bicycle, overtook Oblac, secured his sixth place in the competition and declared the victory over the Londoners.
The teams will clash with each other again on day 13 at Stamford Bridge. A draw puts Chelsea in the quarterfinal.
The first round of the 16th round will end on Wednesday (24). Atlantea hosts Real Madrid in Bergamo and Borussia Mönchengladbach against Bergamest and Manchester City, Hungary, due to a ban for UK travelers. Both matches take place at 5 pm (Brasilia time).
