Chelsea v Bayern Munich Prediction
Tuesday, 9:00 pm
UEFA Champions League
The London Blues welcomes their German counterpart Bayern Munich to the Stamford Bridge in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League fixtures.
Frank Lampard’s men approach this mouth watering fixture following an impressive (2-1) home win over Tottenham Hotspur at the Bridge on Saturday.
The FCB on the away side come into this game on the back of a hard fought (3-2) home win over Paderborn at the Allianz Arena on Friday.
This is their first Champions League meeting since Chelsea triumph over Bayern in the final at Fussball Arena München, 2012.
Players to watch
Tammy Abraham is Chelsea’s top scorer with fifteen goals and four assist so far this season.
Robert Lewandowski is in up form, with thirty five goals and three assist to his name.
Chelsea have been eliminated in each of their last four Champions League home/away ties. They have failed to win any of their eight knockout games in that period (4 Draws and 4 Loss).
Chelsea have won only one of their last six Champions League games at Stamford Bridge (4 Draw, 1 Loss), a 2-1 victory over Lille last December.
Since losing the 2012 Champions League final against Chelsea, Bayern Munich have knocked out English clubs in four of their five subsequent home/away ties in the competition.
Prediction: Bayern Munich Win
