Goals from Robert Lewandowski and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting were enough to see Bayern Munich through to the quarter finals of the Champions League as they beat Lazio 2-1 on Wednesday night.

The visitors came out positively and pressed high, but it was Bayern who managed to find the opener after 33 minutes. Leon Goretzka was brought down clumsily in the box from a corner, allowing Lewandowski to convert calmly from 12 yards for his 39th strike of the season.

The Bavarians eventually found a second goal after 73 minutes when a David Alaba pass was met by substitute Choupo-Moting who beautifully lifted the ball over the onrushing Pepe Reina.

Lazio didn’t drop their heads, however, and after 82 minutes the Italian side pulled one back through Marco Parolo, who headed in an Andreas Pereira free kick. However, Bayern held on to sail into the quarter finals with an aggregate score of 6-2.

Now, let’s get to the Bayern Munich player ratings…
