(sda) Next blow in the neck for Bayern Munich. Coach Thomas Tuchel’s team lost 1-0 in the Champions League round of 16 first leg at Lazio Rome. Paris Saint-Germain defeated Real Sociedad 2-0.

Harmless offensive

After Bayern’s weak performance last Saturday in the top game of the Bundesliga against leaders Bayer Leverkusen (0:3), a reaction was needed from the Munich team in Rome. But none of this was actually visible. The guests had a difficult time against the strong duels and defensively oriented Italians and were too unimaginative. Although the statisticians counted 16 shots on goal by Munich, Roman goalie Ivan Provedel did not have to intervene once. That says everything about the harmlessness of Bayern.

As if that wasn’t enough, central defender Dayot Upamecano was sent off in the 67th minute after hitting Gustav Isaksen on the foot with his open sole in the penalty area. Ciro Immobile, who scored his 200th goal in Serie A last Saturday, took advantage of the penalty. The hosts had already come close to making it 1-0 in the 48th minute when Isaksen failed alone in front of Munich goalie Manuel Neuer.

Pressure on Tuchel is increasing

When the two teams met in the round of 16 of the Champions League three years ago, Bayern won 4-1 in Rome. They still have every opportunity to prevail against Lazio in the second leg. However, the pressure on Tuchel is not decreasing. In the championship, the gap to Leverkusen is five points, in the cup Bayern failed against third division team Saarbrücken, and now there is a risk of elimination from the premier class. The performance is even more interesting.

In the other game on Wednesday evening, the favorite, Paris Saint-Germain, prevailed. However, the home fans had to wait until the 58th minute against San Sebastian before Kylian Mbappé made it 1-0 after a corner. In the 70th minute, Bradley Barcola increased the score to 2-0. In between, Mbappé failed to hit the crossbar (64′). For San Sebastian it was the fifth game in a row without a goal.
