Bayern Munich vs Chelsea Prediction and Betting Preview 08 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 4-1
Bayern Munich vs Chelsea PredictionToppling the charts once again, Bayern Munich defended their league title for the umpteenth time in the rather uncompetitive German Bundesliga. Since losing the title to Borussia Dortmund in 2012, the Bavarians have gone on to lift the prestigious trophy eight times on the bounce.
Match status: 2019/20 Champions League - Play Offs - 1/8-finals
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich)
Blowing everyone away with their impressive performances, we were taken aback by the Bavarian’s exploits this term. Despite entertaining stiff competition from the likes of Dortmund, Leipzig, Leverkusen and co., Bayern managed to finish top of the pile.

Having clinched the 29th Bundesliga title in style, the Bavarians will turn their attentions to Europe as they look to deliver the Champions League trophy to the Allianz Arena. Following their fairytale run to CL success in 2013, Bayern have failed to replicate the successes of that season in subsequent years.

Taking English side Chelsea to the cleaners in a first-leg last-16 game at Stamford Bridge, Hans-Dieter Flick’s charges will be looking to put the nail in the coffin in this reverse fixture in Germany. Expect a brilliant performance from Die Bayern come kickoff.

Bayern Munich vs Chelsea Team News

Simply the best German side over the past couple of years, Bayern Munich have asserted their unrivaled dominance in the Bundesliga, relegating every other side to the background. Different teams attempting to knock the Bavarians off their perch, they have all failed in their tracks.

Even with so many teams challenging for the league title last term, Flick’s men managed to stroll to success in enviable fashion. Garnering 82 points from 34 games, Die Bayern toppled the standings, a whopping 13 points clear of second-placed Borussia Dortmund.

While they were turning heads in the domestic league, Bayern had also been delivering positive results in the Champions League. Thrown in the hat with the likes of Tottenham, Olympiacos and Crvena Zvezda, the Bavarians finished top of the pile, winning all six of their fixtures.

Surely, this Bayern side are a brilliant bunch and cannot be faulted. Making a trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea in the first-leg of a Round-of-16 tie, Flick’s charges ensured their English counterparts were comfortably dispatched.

With Robert Lewandowski spearheading their attack, Der FCB never really seemed phased by their weak opposition. The Polish forward got on the scoresheet, chipping in with two assists to put Chelsea to the sword as Bayern posted an emphatic 3-0 win on the board.

Meanwhile, Chelsea struggled immensely in the Premier League, battling to finish within the top-four. In their bid to clinch Champions League football, they put in all their effort, losing important first-team players in the process. Now, they are without a number of star names in the side.

The Blues are fresh from FA Cup disappointment as they were defeated 2-1 by Arsenal, consequently costing them the prestigious trophy – their only reasonable shot at silverware this season. They will be kicking themselves for letting the game slip from their hands, having been in control early on.

Now faced with the task of overturning a three-goal deficit against an in-form Bayern Munich side, Chelsea will have their work cut-out in a bid to pull off an upset. It will take some high-profile bottling from the Bavarians to let Chelsea back into this game.
