✔️ Joshua Kimmich 7.3

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Bayern dominated possession in Munich, and Kimmich played a key part in that from his deep-lying midfield role.

The German made more final third passes (21) than any other player on the pitch and showed off his passing range with nine long balls.

He also won a remarkable eight of his nine duels across the 77 minutes he spent on the pitch.

Vedat Muriqi 5.1

Although the tie was already over, Muriqi effectively ended Lazio's hopes of at least winning the second leg when he gave away a first-half penalty by hauling down Leon Goretzka.

From there, the forward managed just two touches in the Bayern box, zero shots, and just three final third passes.

David Alaba 8.2

Alaba's influence on the game was not limited to the assist for an Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting goal that eventually proved to be the winner.

The 28-year-old made more passes than any other player (100), with his nearest competitor way back on 76, at a completion rate of 93%.

He also played into the final third on 12 occasions, setting Bayern on the attack from his position in defence.
