18 minutes: Gnabry’s cross shot across the area. Lewandowski took a shot but failed to hit the target and Chelsea took a shot. Bayern may have a 4-0 lead, but are still asking all the questions.
17 minutes: Goretzk-HULK made a daring volley from a Perišić cross, something you can only do with a 4-0 lead. However, he was pretty much wrong, which is interesting.
14 minutes: Davies passed Chelsea and found Müller at the top of the box. He’s got a touch, on target, but his efforts against pressure from Kanté come.
11 minutes: Good cushioning from Reece over Davies after Bayern comfortably play in the midfield.
9 minutes: Target. Bayern. Lewandowski made no mistakes. Caballero on the right track, but unable to make a clearance. 1-0, Bayern.
7 minutes: Tammy held the ball well and brought Kanté on. He passed wide to Hudson-Odio, but his pass to James was poor and Bayern could intercept. On the other side, Chelsea are lagging behind and Lewandowski plays through. Caballero tape off and doesn’t get the ball. Foul. Penalty. The referee blows the offside, but the VAR overturned the situation and gave the penalty. Yellow for Caballero. Emerson played everyone inside.
5 minutes: Emerson approached it again, defended well against Gnabry and cleared the deck for a throw-in. Davies made a superb cross from the left just before, but Lewandowski made a quick save.
4 minutes: Christensen broke through Thiago’s net, then Emerson headed the ball on the left flank. Bayern explored, Chelsea held a draw.
2 Minutes: Lewandowski tried to get Gnabry in early, Emerson got out of harm’s way, first with a throw, then a corner. Zouma crossed the corner for Kimmich; Alaba took a shot from 35m, quite far.
1 minute: Soon offside for Lewandowski, but Chelsea passed the ball out.
BEGIN: Ahh, the national anthem. Probably the highlight of our day. Chelsea started the match.
Chelsea entered the round of 16 Champions League teams today with a 3-0 margin from the first leg (which took place 5.5 months ago), and that overturn will be a bigger miracle than we do. spent here on this exact stadium with this exact opposition on May 19, 2012.
So what I’m saying is there is a chance. A very small opportunity. But that’s why they play the game.
In addition to injuries and suspensions, Ruben Loftus-Cheek cannot return to play today.
