Choupo-Moting provides a historic milestone at winning Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich has qualified without difficulty for the quarter finals of the Champions League. After the 1-4 victory in the first leg, the title holder was also too strong for it at home Lazio: 2-1. Robert Lewandowski and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting provided the hits in the Allianz Arena. The latter accounted for the thousandth goal in a European context on behalf of Bayern, while Lewandowski crowned himself as the most accurate player over the last five seasons together with Cristiano Ronaldo: 41 hits.The most surprising name at the kick-off at Bayern was that of Alexander Nübel. The goalkeeper received the confidence of Flick for the third time this season, who gave Neuer a rest. Stayed with the Romans Wesley Hoedt the entire game on the bench. The Dutchman saw an extremely disappointing first half, in which the ball pace was low and the chances could be counted on one hand. The only time Lazio showed up dangerously in front of Nübel’s goal was via Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who was unable to give his header enough power and direction from close range.

On the other hand, it was hit after half an hour of play. After a corner of Joshua Kimmich Vedat Muriqi hung on Leon Goretzka’s waist, after which referee István Kovács had no choice but to put the ball on the spot. Lewandowski knew what to do with the great opportunity and shot Pepe Reina in the wrong corner with his fifth Champions League goal of the season: 1-0. The first chance was also for Lewandowski after the break. The attacker entered the penalty area from the left, but found Reina in his way at the first post.

The game image barely changed in the second half. It was thanks to the aluminum that Lazio was not put at a greater disadvantage before. Lewandowski took the Italians’ goal under fire twenty minutes before the end at about twenty meters, but hit the post. When Joaquín Correa then shot face to face with Nübels on the chest of Bayern’s closing post, Choupo-Moting decided the game. The invader was sent deeply through David Alaba and put the home team at 2-0 with his first touch of the ball by sticking the ball past Reina in a controlled manner. In the final phase of the game, Marco Parolo took care of the final score, by heading a spinning free kick from Andreas Pereira from close range: 2-1
