Lazio and Bayern Munich will put the frustrations of their respective domestic campaigns aside when they meet in the first leg of their last-16 tie in the Champions League in Rome.
Maurizio Sarri's side qualified for the knockout stages after finishing second in a competitive Group E section which also included Atletico Madrid, Feyenoord and Celtic, with the Italians unbeaten at their Stadio Olimpico home.
German giants Bayern Munich topped an exciting Group A section with an unbeaten record, winning five and drawing one of their fixtures against FC Copenhagen, Galatasaray and Manchester United.
The first leg of Lazio and Bayern Munich's Champions League last-16 tie is available to watch live on TNT Sports 1.
Lazio v Bayern Munich will kick off at 20:00 GMT at Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday 14th February 2024.
Lazio's top goalscorer in this season's Champions League is the legendary Ciro Immobile, with the Italian hitman having notched three times in the group stages including a brace in a 2-0 win against Celtic at the Stadio Olimpico.
Harry Kane has been Bayern's main man in the Champions League so far this term, with the ex-Tottenham striker having bagged four goals during the group stages.
These two famous European clubs have perhaps surprisingly only met twice before, with Bayern Munich defeating Lazio 6-2 on aggregate in the last-16 of the Champions League in 2020/21.
