Chelsea – Bayern Munich : Preview & Prediction
Chelsea-Bayern is one of the great posters of the knockout stages of the Champions League this season. Authors of a magnificent group phase (6 victories, 24 goals scored against 5 conceded), the Germans will challenge the Blues in London, far from their luster of yesteryear, and who are struggling to live up to the great events since the arrival of Lampard at their head. Cesar Azpilicueta’s teammates are second in their group and narrowly qualified in the first round of this Champions League. They are certainly successful against Tottenham in the Premier League (2-1), but have indeed already lost to Liverpool (twice), Manchester United (three times), Valencia and Manchester City in this 2019-2020 fiscal year. At the time of receiving one of the most fit formations of Europe, which crushes everything in its path, the context is clear this Tuesday evening: Chelsea is not favorite on its lawn. Led by the excellent Müller, Lewandowski and other Gnabry, the great Bayern Munich could already pull out of the game, with a view to qualifying for the quarter-finals of this LDC. Again too hard at the Bridge, for still tender Blues?
Chelsea have lost to the majority of big clubs this season.
In the Champions League, the Blues have never shone in pools. Defeat against Valence, short wins against Lille, two draws.
Conversely, Bayern Munich have won all of their matches in competition this season. Including a memorable 1-7 in Tottenham.
Bayern Munich remains on 4 consecutive victories in travel.
Robert Lewandowski, the world’s best striker, is in good shape: 8 goals in his last 6 games.
Neuer, Lewandowski, Müller, Coutinho, Alcantara, Martinez, Kimmich, Boateng … Bayern have lived much more in Europe than Chelsea.
Against a more talented, experienced and fit Bayern, Chelsea should have a hard time not succumbing to the lawn of the Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. As often in competition, the Germans should rise to the occasion, and come and take an oh so important success for the return match at the Allianz Arena.
