Thousands of Lazio fans traveled to Munich for the Champions League game against FC Bayern. Before the game, Roman supporters celebrate Italy’s former dictator Benito Mussolini in the city center. The police intervene.

According to a media report, before FC Bayern’s Champions League game against Lazio Rome, there was an incident in Munich with visiting fans who were said to have chanted fascist chants. On Tuesday, the Italian newspaper “La Repubblica” published a cell phone video from the Hofbräuhaus in which Lazio football supporters sing a song, at the end of which they shout “Duce, Duce, Duce” (Leader) – referring to Italy’s fascist dictator Benito Mussolini (1883-1945).

The video also shows how some fans in the well-known tavern show the so-called “Roman salute” with an outstretched arm, which is popular with fascists – comparable to the Hitler salute in Germany. In response to a dpa request, the Munich police confirmed that there was an operation at the Hofbräuhaus on Monday evening and that investigations were underway. Details were not initially known.

In response to a dpa inquiry, the Hofbräuhaus said that a group of Lazio fans had been accompanied by the police throughout the evening. “We had no knowledge of any fascist songs that were being sung, nor did we notice any corresponding gestures from the guests. Otherwise we would definitely have intervened,” the statement said.

As can be seen on the cell phone video, the fans sang about, among other things, the “Black Shirts,” the paramilitary militias of Mussolini’s fascists. According to “Repubblica” there were almost 100 Roman fans in the inn. Lazio supporters repeatedly attract attention through fascist scandals.

Bayern are threatened with an early exit

For FC Bayern on Tuesday (9 p.m./Prime Video) it’s about averting an early exit from the Champions League. In the second leg of the round of 16 against Lazio Rome, the German record champions have to make up for a 0-1 defeat. “It’s a challenge,” said coach Thomas Tuchel.

A top performance is necessary to move forward. The game in the sold-out Allianz Arena will also show whether the coach, who left in the summer, and his recently disappointing team can still achieve big goals together. Tuchel is also relying on the support of the spectators against Lazio. “We need an emotional stadium,” he said. National player Leroy Sané can probably play again despite pain in his knee and groin. Defender Dayot Upamecano is out and suspended.

Bayern have been eliminated in the quarter-finals in each of the past three seasons. A knockout against Lazio would likely mean the first titleless season since 2011/12. In the Bundesliga, Munich are ten points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen. The German record champion has already been eliminated from the DFB Cup.
