Tuchel opts for Müller, Tel out! This is Bayern’s starting XI against Lazio

Thomas Müller

It’s about to start at the Allianz Arena! FC Bayern take on Lazio Roma in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16. We have the line-ups for the game for you.

This is the FC Bayern Munich team line-up against Lazio Roma: Manuel Neuer is in goal. Eric Dier and Matthijs de Ligt form the central defence.

Raphael Guerreiro is at left-back. Joshua Kimmich defends on the right flank.

Aleksandar Pavlovic and Leon Goretzka occupy the centre of midfield. In front of them, Leroy Sané, Jamal Musiala and Thomas Müller will play in the attacking line. Harry Kane is once again responsible for the goals as centre forward.

In Bayern’s last Bundesliga match, coach Thomas Tuchel had brought Tel into the starting eleven because Sané was missing through injury. Tel put in an impressive performance and scored a wonderful goal. Müller, on the other hand, remained pale. Many had therefore assumed that Tel would start against Lazio and that Müller would have to sit on the bench when Sané returned against the Romans. But Tuchel decided in favour of Müller’s experience in an all-or-nothing game.

This is Bayern’s substitutes‘ bench: Daniel Peretz (goal), Sven Ulreich (goal), Minjae Kim, Serge Gnabry, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Bryan Zaragoza, Alphonso Davies, Konrad Laimer, Mathys Tel

FC Bayern: Neuer – Kimmich, Dier, De Ligt, Guerreiro – Pavlovic, Goretzka – Sané, Müller, Musiala – Kane
