UEFA Champions League :

Bayern Munich have one foot in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals after a commanding 4-1 defeat of Lazio on Thursday.

Iran PressEurope: In a nightmare first half for Lazio in Rome, Robert Lewandowski pounced on Mateo Musacchio’s poor back pass to steer home inside nine minutes – making him the UEFA Champions League all-time third-highest scorer with 72 goals.

Leon Goretzka supplied Jamal Musiala for Bayern's second, which the 17-year-old drilled low into the bottom corner. Leroy Sané poked in Bayern’s third with Pepe Reina only able to divert Kingsley Coman’s effort into the winger’s path.

Bayern showed further intent after half-time, forcing Francesco Acerbi's 47th-minute own goal for 4-0. However, Joaquín Correa quickly tip-toed through Bayern's danger zone to score a consolation for the Italians.
