Chelsea vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips
Chelsea finished in second place in the group stage of the Champions League. This is the reason why the Blues are taking on Bayern Munich in the 1/8-final, a team that finished in the top of the table in their group. Bayern Munich won all of their 6 matches in the group phase. This makes them the only team in the Champions League with a 100% winning score.
Chelsea, on the other hand, won a total of 11 points in the group stage, only 1 more than Ajax who finished 3rd. Obviously, this makes the German team the favorite against Chelsea. Still, this doesn’t mean their job is going to be easy, especially not in the first part of the doubleheader.
The Blues are famous for playing well on their turf. Their previous home match was a win over Tottenham. They also did well at home in the Champions League, beating Lille in the final match of the group stage, which got them the ticket to the 1/8-finals.
The trouble for Chelsea is that they have some problems with injuries among their key players. Still, Lampard does have plenty of players to choose from. What’s got to worry about their fans is that even with all the players available, Chelsea does not seem stronger than Bayern Munich.
Bayern Munich is one of the strongest teams in the world, which has been playing really well lately. Thanks to their good form in 2020, the Bavarian side has gotten to the very top of the Bundesliga. One of the Bayern players who’s been in a fantastic form is Robert Lewandowski.
This player is the top scorer of the Bundesliga, as well as the Champions League. In the top continental competition, the Polish striker has scored a total of 10 goals already, more than any other player. Haaland is breathing by his neck with 2 goals fewer, but his team has already played the first part of the 1/8-final, meaning that Lewandowski has a chance to improve his tally even more.
