English club Chelsea takes on German champions Bayern Munich in one of the marquee UEFA Champions League knock-out fixtures. Under the stewardship of Frank Lampard, the Blues have done well to hang on to the fourth spot in the league. A transfer ban in effect has prompted Chelsea to field young stars this campaign and the move has worked well. Although they are still a work in progress, Bayern will feel the heat at Stamford Bridge. Bayern Munich won all their group stage matches and come into the contest full of confidence. Hansi Flick has taken the team to new levels ever since he has come in and there is a high level of consistency in their results.

The absence of midfielder N'Golo Kante through an abductor muscle injury is a huge setback for Frank Lampard. This in combination with injuries to Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic means Chelsea are a bit short in attack. Ross Barkley and Mason Mount are expected to start with Olivier Giroud set to continue as the no 9. Tammy Abraham is fit again but will have to settle for a place on the bench. Chelsea will rely on quick breaks on the counter to survive against a technically superior Bayern side.
Bayern Munich have failed to win just once in their last eleven game in all competition which speaks volumes about their current form. Ivan Perisic misses out for them, but Javi Martinez could be included. Joshua Kimmich and Thiago Alcantara in the middle could tilt the tie in favour of the Germans considering their link-up play with Robert Lewandowski.
