Chelsea 0-3 Bayern Munich - Tuesday 25th February, 2020 (1st Leg)

Recommended Posts

The worst Buyern Hünchen is worse than the worst Chelsea I've seen this season. The best Bayern München is better than the best Chelsea.

Does anybody know what formation Bayern will play in? I doubt even they know.

Is this the hardest to predict match in this round?

The thing your missing above is that the average Chelsea are a fair bit worse than the average Bayern. So on average Chelsea should lose.

Won’t be surprise if we turn up. Been that kind of season. 

Arguably matched the best side in Europe twice already this season and went toe to toe with City. Both sides who are better than Bayern. Current side thrives on being the under dog. 

Pulisic, Kante, and CHO out for us. 

Score draw I think

I just hope we don't do a Spurs haha. A draw would be an okay result i think, i hope the lads give their best i ask no more. Keep it interesting for the second leg. I can see Frank going for a 3-4-3 formation again, i don't think we were too tired from the Spurs game as it didn't have high intensity. Perhaps some refreshments like Zouma or Tomori, and i think Willian will certainly start as he was rested on the weekend. I'd also start Giroud and then introduce Tammy later on.

The only match up that’s concerning is Lewa vs Christensen. No doubt Lampard will start him and I think it’ll be a mistake. 

James vs Davies will be a good clash

Süle is injured, Boateng in bad shape. How do you reckon will your strikers fare against Hernandez-Boateng?

Giroud should cope better than Tammy.

After that Paderborn performance I hope to god its 4 at the back. Even then Boa gives me no confidence anymore, Alaba Hernandez partnership is the only option atm for me.

 

Anyways exciting tie as always with Chelsea.

BFW's expected starting 11. Makes alot of sense but well see, Boa is definitely the weak point.

Does Alaba usually play CB these days?

So basically Hernandez is just coming back from a long knee injury, Javi Martinez is out, Süle is out long term and we sold Hummels in the off season. There is one young CB (Mai) we have on our roster and Boateng and thats it. Alaba did play a little bit of CB under Pep, hes filled in admirably. The more surpising part has been how well Davies has played at LB.

Yes, defence is the one area where Bayern are having some problems. Boateng is past it and he is a liability in defence. Bayern can get away playing him there against the weaker sides, but when it comes to the elite teams, it could be a real issue. Bayern will want Hernandez fully fit as soon as possible.

With the exception of Boateng, that looks a very strong lineup. It's great to see that Flick is getting the best out of Mueller again. The last few Bayern managers didn't seem to appreciate his qualities. That position down the centre is his best position and he is so deadly with his timing, his movement and his finishing. He's a great compliment to the legend up top that is Lewandowski. Gnabry and Coman will both be a menace down the flanks just like they usually are, while Thiago and Kimmich will run things in midfield.

Davies and Pavard also love to push forward when Bayern are pressing the opposition back in their own half. Personally, I really see Bayern winning tonight. The draw is also really possible, but I would be surprised if Chelsea win. Bayern just seem to have so much firepower compared to the West Londoners.

Yes he does, but only because of all the injury problems Bayern have had in the centre back position.

Anyway, I will be getting ready to go out to watch this match. It should be really eventful and I think that there will be quite a few goals in this one.

Giroud's experience will prove beneficial for Chelsea again I feel.

If we intended on a counter attacking game why is Willian on the bench? Seeing Mount trying to out pace Davies was just embarrassing.

Close from Chelsea! Pick up on a Neuer mistake and nearly score through Giroud sliding in but just misses.

Very cheeky header  nearly goes in from Muller.

Barkley doesn't seem up to the pace of the game. Seems to get ball trapped under his feet a lot and takes too long to make a pass or use it.
