Champions League: Atlético wants to bring down Chelsea, Bayern intends to confirm against Lazio (direct at 9 p.m.)
The last two knockout stages of the Champions League are played this Wednesday evening.
Tenant of the title, Bayern is on the pile after its broad success 1-4 in the first leg against Lazio. The Rekordmeister have only been eliminated once after securing an away victory on the European stage. Hansi Flick, whose team has never been worried about the Biancocelesti, could even afford the luxury of running his squad on Wednesday night. He could, for example, give playing time to Jamal Musiala, who became the youngest European scorer in the history of the Bavarian club at 17 in the first leg.
For its part, Atlético and Yannick Carrasco will travel to London to challenge Chelsea on the lawn of Stamford Bridge on Wednesday after losing the first leg (0-1) on a feat signed by Olivier Giroud, author of a sensational bicycle. If the Colchoneros want to join the quarterfinals, they will have to beat the Blues, something no other team has managed to do since coach Thomas Tuchel took power.
