Lazio or Draw - Double Chance

Bayern Munich's Bundesliga dominance is being challenged this season and they head to Rome on the back of a damaging 3-0 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen last time out, a result which left the Bavarians five points behind Xabi Alonso's side.

That air of invincibility often seen with Bayern has not been there this season and Thomas Tuchel's men may find it difficult to take an advantage back to the Allianz Arena for the second leg.

Lazio have proven to be a tough nut to crack on home turf of late, recording three straight wins over Frosinone, Roma and Lecce before drawing 0-0 against Napoli.

Maurizio Sarri's troops have been solid at the back, keeping clean sheets in their last three outings at the Stadio Olimpico, while they were unbeaten in their three group stage matches at home.

Backing Lazio in the double chance market should help deliver this Bet Builder.

Most booking points - Lazio

There isn't a massive difference between these two sides in terms of fouls committed in the Champions League this season, with Lazio leading the count 67 to 59, but the Italian outfit are way ahead when it comes to cautions.

Sarri's side have been shown 22 yellow cards across their six matches, while the Bavarians have only been shown eight yellows as they have managed to maintain their discipline better.

Lazio are likely to adopt an aggressive approach to intimidate Bayern and they should lead the booking points tally in this one.

Sacha Boey to be booked

While Lazio should get the most cards, one player who could end up in the book is Bayern defender Sacha Boey, who arrived at the club in January and who has already got one yellow from two Bundesliga outings.

The 23-year-old Frenchman has already been cautioned three times in this season's Champions League while with Galatasaray and he may fall foul of the referee once again in a hostile environment.
