Bayern München’s 2-1 victory over Lazio sealed an overall 6-2 aggregate win in the Round of 16 for the Bavrian giants. Lewandowski and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting were on target for Bayern before Marco Parolo got one back for the Italians.


With the win, Hansi Flick recorded an unprecedented seventh win in each of his first seven knockout stage games in the competition. A Champions League record never seen before.

Flick has managed to beat Chelsea, Barcelona, Lyon, PSG and Lazio throughout his reign in the Bayern dugout.

The German giants also qualified for the final eight 19 times, more than any other team in the continental competition’s history – all the while avoiding defeat in 19 straight games.

By going undefeated in nineteen straight games, they have tied their best undefeated UEFA Champions League streak.

Bayern Munich look strong enough to win the competition once more, making it twice in a row.
