The knock-out stage of the UEFA Champions league have begun and the best teams from all around the Europe are ready to lock horns to become the best in Europe. And Chelsea vs Bayern Munich is the best as it can get, they have a history and they have a lot to prove so there will be plenty of fireworks, GUARANTEED!!!
Chelsea might have been struggling in the Premier League but they are always lethal when it comes to European football. On the other hand it’s the other way around Bayern have been singlehandedly dominating the Bundesliga but they’ve been not upto the expectations when it comes to European League.
Even after the departure of Ribery and Robben Bayern still have a better squad in fact, far better squad then Chelsea at the moment. But the man of the hour is Robert Lewandowski, he is in a red hot form as usual, and he doesn’t care which team is he playing against or what defenders are up against him all he cares is about scoring and he’ll do it one way or another. But along with Lewandowski, you can also not underestimate Gnabry and Muller they’re world class and they are destroy any defense on their day. Bayern’s defense is also better than the Blues, they have Boateng and Alaba who are made of concrete.
But Chelsea are lethal when it comes to European football, and god knows what it is but Blues become unstoppable in Europe they’re players play like Messi and Maldini so there is no way Bayern are going to underestimate them.
The only worry for Chelsea will be that Kante and Loftus-Cheek are doubtful for the match while Pulsic will be out due to leg injury.
For Bayern, Sule and Perisic are out due to injuries while Martinez is out due to thigh injury.
Conclusion: Match will be held at Stanford Bridge which means Chelsea should be favorite, but keeping in mind the last match where Manchester United thrashed Chelsea, it shows that Chelsea has many weak links in their team. So Bayern might take a draw from Bridge and they might seal it later at Allianz.
