Chelsea vs Bayern Munich Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Bayern Munich begin their campaign in the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League with a round of 16 clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Defending has not been the strength of either team and given the attacking quality expected to be on display here, goals are predicted.

Chelsea Form


Chelsea finished second behind Valencia in group H to secure their place in the round of 16 of the Champions League. They claimed three wins and two draws, keeping just one clean sheet in six Group stage matches.

The Blues head into Tuesday’s match off the back of a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud and Marcos Alonso. It is only the second win in six matches for Frank Lampard’s men who continue to battle with inconsistency.

Chelsea have also been plagued by defensive problems and are without a clean sheet in their last six matches. They have conceded two goals three times in that run, losing 2-0 to Manchester United and playing out 2-2 draws against Arsenal and Leicester.

The German champions have been in good form in recent weeks having gone unbeaten in their last seven matches. They have claimed six wins in that run, including a 3-1 victory over Mainz and a 4-3 triumph against Hoffenheim.

The one problem for Bayern is in defence where they have kept just one clean sheet in their last five matches.

The Germans claimed a 3-2 victory the last time both teams met during the 2017 International Champions Cup.
