That's all for today, goodbye!
Bayern already have one foot in the quarter-finals with that result, with the second leg due to take place on March 17th. They're back to winning ways and turn their attention to the league when they face Cologne on Saturday. It looks like a big ask for Lazio to come back in that second leg, especially with Bayern's four away goals. Next up for them is Bologna in Serie A at the weekend.
Bayern take a 4-1 advantage over Lazio into the second leg. They led 3-0 at half-time, with Lewandowski latching onto Musacchio's loose backpass to tap in the first. Musiala then found the bottom corner, with Sane adding a third from close range. It was a poor start to the second half for the hosts, with Acerbi scoring an own goal in the 47th minute before Correa pulled one back minutes later when he slotted past Neuer.
