The Bundesliga champions played out a goalless draw in the first forty-five minutes of the UCL tie against Chelsea. Bayern Munich missed opportunities to take the lead in the first half of the game.
The Bavarians resumed second half firing from all cylinders, in the 51st-minute of the encounter serge gnabry latched on to a return ball from Robert Lewandowski to give Bayern the lead.
The former Arsenal man scored his second of the night after a Swift one-two touch between him and Lewandowski to give Bayern a second goal.
Frank Lampard’s side had no reply as his attacking duo of olivere Giroud and Abraham had no answer to Bayern’s puzzle.
In 76th minute Bayern point man scored the third goal of the match to make it 3-0 with an assist from David Alaba. This gave Bayern a three-goal advantage as they host Chelsea at Allianz Arena in 2 weeks.
Chelsea’s day went from bad to worse when Marcos Alonso was sent off towards the end of the match after a foul on Lewandowski, the referee had issued a yellow card to the Spaniards but after a VAR review decided to send the Chelsea defender off, this summed up Chelsea’s night.
Earlier today I asked a question . Can frank Lampard break Chelsea’s Jinx? It is obvious he does not have what it takes to do it.
What is your opinion? Do you see Chelsea doing a combe back in the second leg of this tie and probably winning the game?
