ROME (AP) — Jamal Musiala became Bayern Munich’s youngest-ever goalscorer in the Champions League as he helped his team rout Lazio 4-1 in the first leg of the round of 16 on Tuesday.
The 17-year-old Musiala also became the second-youngest player to score in the knockout stage of the competition when he netted Bayern’s second goal.Robert Lewandowski had earlier given Bayern the lead and Leroy Sané put the defending champion firmly in control at the end of the first half.
Francesco Acerbi netted an own goal at the start of the second half as Lazio’s first appearance in the Champions League knockout stage for 20 years went from bad to worse. Joaquín Correa scored a consolation for the Italian side, which was woeful defensively.
The return match is March 17 in Munich.
Bayern had made the trip to Rome without several players due to the coronavirus and injuries. That list included Thomas Müller, Douglas Costa, Benjamin Pavard, Serge Gnabry and Corentin Tolisso.
It was the first time Lazio had been in the knockout round since 2000-01 and its return got off to a nightmare start as a dreadful Mateo Musacchio back pass in the ninth minute was intercepted by Lewandowski, who slotted it into the empty net.
Musiala had been handed a surprise start and he doubled Bayern’s lead in the 24th as the England youth international was left unmarked to fire into the bottom left corner after Leon Goretzka had flicked on Alphonso Davies’ pass from the left.
The game was all but over three minutes from halftime. Lazio goalkeeper Pepe Reina did well to parry Kingsley Coman’s attempt after a surging run from the France forward but Sané turned in the rebound.
And Lazio gifted Bayern another goal two minutes after the break when Acerbi turned Sané’s cross into his own net.
The only consolation for Lazio was Correa’s goal in the 49th. The Argentina midfielder scored a brilliant solo effort as he beat four Bayern players before firing past Manuel Neuer.
