Bayern Munich v Chelsea team news

Bayern Munich: A raft of young players have been added to Bayern’s Champions League squad but boss Hans-Dieter Flick should stick with a regular XI here.

There are no injury concerns bar Benjamin Pavard, so expect Robert Lewandowski to lead the line, with Thiago Alcantara, Leon Goretzka and Serge Gnabry marshalling the midfield.

Chelsea: Marcos Alonso and Jorginho are suspended for the tie, while Cesar Azpilicueta and Christian Pulisic both suffered injuries in the FA Cup final defeat last weekend.

There are worries over N’Golo Kante and Willian’s fitness, while Pedro dislocated his shoulder at Wembley. Callum Hudson-Odoi could therefore start, while Olivier Giroud will be tasked with leading the line.

Our prediction: Bayern Munich v Chelsea

This is likely the end of a long summer for Chelsea where injuries have hampered Lampard’s aspirations.

And considering they need three goals just to draw level with Bayern, it’s hard to see how the Blues overturn this fixture.

Bayern are unlikely to experiment here as they look ahead to a quarter-final clash with either Napoli or Barcelona. This could be a drab affair.

Our prediction: Bayern Munich 2-0 Chelsea
