Match background Only this chapter

Lazio, in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds for only the second time, face holders Bayern München, who are on a long unbeaten run in UEFA competition.

• Both clubs came through the group stage undefeated. While Bayern won five of their six fixtures this season to finish seven points clear at the top of Group A, Lazio needed a 2-2 draw at home to Club Brugge on Matchday 6 to claim second place in Group F behind Borussia Dortmund.

• This is the teams' first meeting in UEFA competition.

Form guide

• Lazio drew four of their six Group F games, all three away matches –  at Club Brugge, Zenit and Dortmund – ending 1-1. They won their first two home matches 3-1, defeating Dortmund on Matchday 1 and Zenit on Matchday 4, before the qualiification-sealing draw against Club Brugge in Rome on Matchday 6.

• The Rome club have not kept a clean sheet in their last 17 UEFA Champions League games, group stage to final, since a 2-0 win at Beşiktaş on Matchday 1 of the 2003/04 campaign. It is nine games in the competition proper since they kept their goal intact at home – in a 1-0 defeat of Galatasaray on 24 October 2001. 

• Matchday 2 marked Lazio's first draw in 19 European games, since they were held 2-2 by Dynamo Kyiv in Rome in the UEFA Europa League round of 16 first leg in March 2018; three of their subsequent four matches have also finished all square.

• This is Lazio's sixth UEFA Champions League campaign. On their most recent appearance, in 2007/08, they finished fourth in their section having picked up only five points from six games. Their previous appearances in the competition all came between 1999 and 2004.

• Despite this season's wins against Dortmund and Zenit, Lazio have won only three of their last 17 UEFA Champions League matches, group stage to final (D8 L6).

• Before their first Group F game, Lazio's sole UEFA Champions League tie since 2007 had been a play-off defeat by Bayer Leverkusen in 2015/16 (1-0 h, 0-3 a), their last knockout contests against Bundesliga opponents.

• Lazio's record in two-legged ties against German clubs is W2 L2.

• The Biancocelesti took part in the UEFA Europa League group stage in 2019/20, winning two of their fixtures, both at home, but losing the other four to finish third in the standings behind Celtic and CFR Cluj.

• Although unbeaten in this season's competition, Simone Inzaghi's side – who qualified for the group stage by finishing fourth in Serie A in 2019/20 – have lost eight of their last 16 European matches (W4 D4).

• The Italian side had won three successive home European matches before drawing with Club Brugge; they have been victorious in seven of their last 11 European games in Rome (D1 L3).

• Lazio's 3-1 victory against Dortmund on Matchday 1 ended a three-match losing streak, home and away, against German clubs and is their only victory in the last five such contests (D1 L3). Their record against German clubs in Rome is W6 D1 L1.

• This is Lazio's second appearance in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds; their sole previous tie was a defeat by Valencia in the 1999/2000 quarter-finals (2-5 a, 1-0 h). That is their most successful campaign in the competition.

• Lazio are one of two teams to be making their round of 16 debut in 2020/21, along with Borussia Mönchengladbach.

• The German giants extended their competition record run of victories to 15 this season, following up a 4-0 home defeat of Atlético de Madrid with wins at Lokomotiv Moskva (2-1) and Salzburg (6-2) before a 3-1 home victory against the Austrian side on Matchday 4 sealed progress. Their long winning run was ended by a 1-1 draw at Atleti on Matchday 5, the first time Bayern had failed to win a UEFA Champions League match since 13 March 2019, before a 2-0 closing victory at home to Lokomotiv.

• Bayern claimed their sixth European Cup in 2019/20, and third in the UEFA Champions League era, with a 1-0 final defeat of Paris Saint-Germain in Lisbon. That was Bayern's 11th successive win in the competition, surpassing the record mark they set between April and November 2013 and which Real Madrid matched between April 2014 and February 2015. Bayern were the first unbeaten champions since Manchester United in 2007/08.

• The Munich club became only the seventh team – and first from Germany – to win all six games in the UEFA Champions League group stage last season, before easing through the knockout stages, beating Chelsea in the round of 16 (3-0 a, 4-1 h) before wins in one-off ties against Barcelona (8-2) – the first time Bayern had scored eight goals in a UEFA Champions League match – Lyon (3-0) and Paris in Lisbon.

• Bayern's 43 goals in last season's UEFA Champions League campaign was the highest total by any club since the competition changed format in 2003/04. The all-time record for a single campaign is the 45 scored by Barcelona in 1999/2000 – though they played 16 matches compared to Bayern's 11 in 2019/20.

• Robert Lewandowski finished as the top scorer in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League with 15 goals, two shy of Cristiano Ronaldo's competition record of 17 for Real Madrid in 2013/14. The goal he scored against Salzburg on Matchday 4 this season was his 71st in the UEFA Champions League, moving him level with Raúl González in joint third in the competition's all-time scoring list.

• This is Bayern's 24th UEFA Champions League campaign, fewer only than Barcelona and Real Madrid (both 25). They have now won their section 17 times, including in each of the last three seasons. Only Barcelona (21 times) have done so more often.

• Champions of Germany for a record 30th time last season – with a landmark eighth successive Bundesliga title – Bayern have reached the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals or better in eight of the last nine seasons, the exception their defeat by eventual champions Liverpool in the 2018/19 round of 16.

• Bayern have already won European silverware this season, defeating UEFA Europa League winners Sevilla 2-1 after extra time in the UEFA Super Cup in Budapest on 24 September thanks to goals from Leon Goretzka (34) and Javi Martínez (104).

• The draw at Atlético on Matchday 5 ended Bayern's run of UEFA competition victories at 16; their sole loss in their last 26 European outings is the 3-1 home defeat by Liverpool in the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg (W21 D5).

• Bayern's last European away defeat was a 3-0 loss at Paris on Matchday 1 of the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League; their record since is W12 D4. Outside Munich they had won ten in a row before being held at Atleti, a result that matched Manchester United's UEFA Champions League record of 16 away games without defeat.

• This is Bayern's first trip to Italy since a 2-2 draw at Juventus in the 2015/16 round of 16 first leg, a tie they went on to win 6-4 on aggregate. That made their record in two-legged ties against Serie A sides W5 L6, with aggregate victories in their last two contests.

• Bayern recorded their joint biggest away victory in UEFA competition at the Stadio Olimpico, beating Lazio's city rivals Roma 7-1 in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League group stage. Their record away to Serie A sides is W7 D4 L9 with no defeats in their last five visits (W3 D2); their away record in knockout ties against Italian sides is W4 D2 L5.

• Bayern's round of 16 record is W12 L4; they beat Chelsea 7-1 on aggregate last season (3-0 a, 4-1 h). The 2018/19 defeat by another English club, Liverpool (0-0 a, 1-3 h) is the only one of their last nine last-16 ties they have failed to win; this is their 13th successive season at this stage.

• The 2016 contest with Juventus was Bayern's fourth UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie against an Italian club; their record is W2 L2.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with AC Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Real Madrid's 2018 triumph made them the first team to win three successive European Cups twice. The Spanish side won the first five editions of the tournament, between 1956 and 1960; Ajax (1971–73) and Bayern München (1974–76) have also lifted the trophy three years in a row.

• Only two teams have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Borussia Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome), while Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

Knockout stage
• Real Madrid have qualified for the UEFA Champions League knockout phase a record 25 times, including 24 in succession. They have also played a competition-high 99 knockout phase matches – ahead of Bayern München (96) and Barcelona (95).

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 49 times, including six in 2018/19 – a competition record for a single season – and Paris Saint-Germain in last season's round of 16.

• Before 2018/19, only twice – Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos in the 1995/96 semi-finals and Internazionale's victory against Bayern in the 2010/11 round of 16 – had a side progressed after a home first-leg loss. However, Ajax again (against Real Madrid) and Manchester United (against Paris Saint-Germain) both achieved the feat in the 2018/19 round of 16 before Tottenham (against Ajax) did likewise in the semi-finals.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by Barcelona against Paris in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home; Roma equalled that margin in the 2017/18 quarter-finals, turning round a 4-1 first-leg loss at Barcelona with a 3-0 home success, while in the 2018/19 semi-finals Liverpool lost 3-0 in the first leg at Barcelona but went through after a 4-0 home victory.

• Thirty-four ties have been decided on away goals, including 13 where the triumphant team lost the first leg. Bayern and Monaco have benefited from the away goals rule five times – more than any other club – whereas Internazionale have been eliminated by that method a record four times.

• In all, 30 ties have required extra time. Fourteen have been settled by extra time alone: six round of 16 encounters including Atlético-Liverpool in 2019/20, five quarter-finals, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool, and the 2013/14 final between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Lyon on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties. Bayern, Chelsea and Atlético Madrid have all appeared in three shoot-outs, sharing the competition record, with Bayern, Atlético and Liverpool having won the most (two apiece).

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Atlético Madrid and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid's defeat of Manchester City in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool (versus Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at Schalke in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting CP in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16.

• Bayern eventually beat Sporting by a record aggregate margin of 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie until it was equalled by Liverpool's 7-6 aggregate win against Roma in the 2017/18 semi-final.

• Bayern and Manchester City jointly hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match. Bayern beat both Basel (2011/12) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg, while City beat Schalke by the same scoreline at the same stage of the 2018/19 competition.

• A record five clubs from England participated in the 2017/18 knockout phase. Including 2019/20, England has also provided four clubs on eight other occasions – as has Spain six times and Germany three. England is the only nation to have provided four quarter-finalists in a season, 2018/19 being the third occasion after 2007/08 and 2008/09.

• There are four clubs from two nations in the round of 16 for only the fourth time in 2020/21. England and Spain both had four apiece in 2008/09, there were four each from England and Germany in 2013/14 while in 2019/20 Spain and England each had four representatives.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to have lifted the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win it three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) and Zinédine Zidane (2016, 2017, 2018) have replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburg 1983), José Mourinho (Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

Goalscoring records
• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in Barcelona's 7-1 win against Bayer Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat matched by Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Thirteen more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, most recently Josip Iličić for Atalanta in the 2019/20 round of 16 second leg against Valencia. He was the third player to score four in a game that season, all away from home, after group stage quadruples from Bayern's Serge Gnabry (Matchday 2 at Tottenham) and Robert Lewandowski (Matchday 5 at Crvena zvezda).

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, Lionel Messi got ten goals in 2016/17, a figure matched by Robert Lewandowski in 2019/20; Ronaldo (2013/14, 2017/18) and Luiz Adriano (2014/15) scored nine while Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi, Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03), Lewandowski (2018/19) and Erling Braut Haaland (2019/20) all managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick against PSV Eindhoven on Matchday 1 of the 2018/19 competition was his eighth in the competition, a mark Ronaldo matched against Atlético de Madrid in that season's round of 16 second leg.

Oldest and youngest players
• Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete in the UEFA Champions League having featured against Real Madrid on Matchday 6 in 2007/08 aged 43 years 252 days. Alessandro Costacurta is the oldest outfield player; the Milan defender was 40 years and 211 days when he played against AEK Athens in 2006/07.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years 59 days, in Roma's 1-1 draw at CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Youssoufa Moukoko is the youngest player to have appeared, aged 16 years 18 days for Borussia Dortmund at Zenit on 8 December 2020. He replaced Celestine Babayaro, who was 16 years 87 days when he started for Anderlecht against Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994; Babayaro was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Ansu Fati's winner for Barcelona at Inter on Matchday 6 in 2019/20 made him the youngest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history, at the age of 17 years 40 days. He eclipsed the previous record of Olympiacos's Peter Ofori-Quaye (17 years 195 days) that had lasted since 1 October 1997.
