Chelsea vs Bayern Munich Prediction and Betting Preview 25 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-3
Chelsea vs Bayern Munich PredictionChelsea head into the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie with Bayern Munich on the back of a morale-boosting win over Tottenham Hotspur.
Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Round of 16
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London)
Meanwhile, the German outfit make the trip to Stamford Bridge having maintained top spot in the Bundesliga with a hard-fought triumph against Paderborn.

It will be the first Champions League meeting between the two sides since that dazzling night at the Allianz Arena in 2012, where Didier Drogba, Petr Cech and current-manager Frank Lampard stunned Bayern in their own back yard to win Chelsea the competition for the very first time.

The hosts have endured stuttering form lately, but were hugely impressive in their victory over former manager Jose Mourinho and Tottenham at the weekend. They qualified for the last 16 after finishing second in their group behind Valencia.

Expect a ballsy affair between these really good footballing sides on Tuesday night, both sides breaching the other, at least once, before the end of the ninety minutes. It promises to be a cracker!

Chelsea vs Bayern Munich Team News

Ahead of Saturday's game with Spurs, Frank Lampard was aware that he was beginning to come under some pressure from the club's supporters after four matches without success in the Premier League.

With Bayern, Liverpool and Everton also on the horizon in various competitions, there would have been an acknowledgement that the Blues needed to get back on track as soon as possible.

However, just like they did in the reverse fixture in December, Chelsea outfought and outclassed their London rivals, ultimately prevailing by well-taken goals from Olivier Giroud and Marcos Alonso.

The West Londoners also had to cope with the feeling of injustice after Giovani Lo Celso remarkably survived a call for a red card, but Lampard watched his players come through another test of character at a time when they should have had a comfortable last half-hour.

Bayern have shown their frailties in defense over recent weeks, conceding seven goals from their last five outings across all competitions.
That said, there are fewer concerns going forward with seven goals being scored during meetings with FC Koln and Paderborn respectively.

The back-to-back triumphs, which have seen Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski contribute five strikes between them, has ensured that Bayern remain at the top of the domestic standings at a time when their rivals struggle for consistency.

However, Hans Flick is aware that there is a demand for further progress in the Champions League after last season's last-16 exit, which made it six campaigns in a row in which Bayern had failed to reach the final.

With this year's competition as wide open as it has been for some time, Flick and his players know that there is a window of opportunity, especially against opponents who have found it difficult on their home patch.

Chelsea will be inclined to keep things as tight as possible during the first leg but if their previous form is anything to go by, inviting pressure onto themselves may only play into Bayern's favour.

Chelsea vs Bayern Munich Predictions

Although Chelsea are on a high after the success over Spurs, this represents a tougher challenge for the Blues. While Bayern had issues at the back on Friday, we feel that they will have too much quality for their hosts at the other end of the pitch.
