Lazio take on Bayern Munich at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 first leg.

The Italians are competing in the knockout stage of the competition for the first time since 2000, with Bayern progressing for the 13th consecutive season as they look to defend their title.

The Bavarians’ form has stuttered since returning from Qatar as FIFA World Club Cup champions, losing to Eintracht Frankfurt and drawing with Arminia Bielefeld.

Lazio, meanwhile, climbed back into the top four of Serie A after winning their sixth straight home game against Sampdoria on Friday night.

I fancy both teams to score here, with this landing in each of Lazio’s six group games and in each of Bayern’s three group games on the road.

Moreover, Lazio have scored in all 12 of their home games in Serie A and Bayern have scored in all 12 of their away games in the Bundesliga this season.

Neither side are convincing defensively, either, with both sides conceding 30+ goals in the league already this season.

Despite missing several first-team players, I can’t really see Bayern losing to be honest, so will back them to win or draw alongside Both Teams To Score to receive odds of 4/5 using bet365’s Bet Builder.

To follow this up, I’ll also back Ciro Immobile and Robert Lewandowski to score at 7/2 (Sky Bet).

The duo have an astonishing 48 goals between them in their respective leagues and the Champions League already this season and are both on penalty duty.

Immobile has the pace and finishing ability to do serious damage to Bayern, while Lewandowski continues to score regardless of what is occurring behind him.

Moreover, the Italian scored five goals in his four CL appearances this season and has five goals in his last six home games, with Lewandowski scoring in nine of his last 10 away league games.

I've been a football fanatic ever since my five-year-old self saw Michael Owen score *that* goal against Argentina. My dad's a Liverpool fan so I never looked back from there. As an avid watcher, player, and writer of the game, I suppose betting on it was always an inevitability at some point. It started off with a weekly accumulator and the odd punt on national tournaments, but with the rise of player markets and custom bet builders in recent years I feel there's more fun, control and value to be had these days, which is what it's all about, really. I'll always ensure I research the stats and probabilities behind my tips (where possible) so that my experienced eyes aren't playing tricks on me!
