Hello and welcome to Sportstar's Champions League highlights of the round of 16 second leg between Bayern Munich and Chelsea at the Allianz Arena.

 

FULL-TIME: BAYERN MUNICH 4-1 CHELSEA (Aggregate 7-1)

Bayern Munich enters the Champions League quarterfinals by hammering Chelsea 7-1 on aggregate. Die Roten followed up their 3-0 away win in February with a thumping 4-1 win against a depleted Chelsea side which tried to put a brave face on. Robert Lewandowski had a hand in all the goals as he scored two and set up two for Ivan Perisic and Corentin Tolisso. Hansi Flick side is now undefeated in 18 games and will take on Barcelona in the last eight clash in the mini-tournament in Lisbon next week.

90+2' Odriozola hits a long cross towards the left side which is worked into the box by Bayern. Muller has a one final attempt which doesn't trouble Caballero as the referee blows his whistle to bring the match to an end.

89' Davies is taken off the pitch by the Bayern doctors after he runs into Christensen on the left wing. Kante tries to bring the ball in from the right but is stopped in his tracks Tolisso. The fourth official announces two minutes of added time.

86' Bayern is not letting down its guard down yet. Chelsea, with no quality reserves on the bench, has stuck to just one substitute and looks exhuasted.

84' GOAL BAYERN! Odriozola makes a superb run down the right wing and sends a dangerous cross into the box as Lewandowski outjumps everyone in the box and sends a thumping header past the keeper. It's 7-1 on aggregate.

83' SHOT! Bayern takes a corner shot as Sule catches Caballero napping and sends rasping shot from outside the box.

80' Flick makes his final substitution, as he sends in Javi Martinez for Serge Gnabry. Lampard makes his first change as he takes off Tammy Abraham to send in Olivier Giroud.

78' Bayern shuts down Chelsea's channels through the centre forcing the visitor to go back. Barkley passes to Hudson-Odoi whose shot is blocked by Goeretzka. James takes a stab at the goal from outside but its a simple save for Neuer.

76' GOAL BAYERN! Lewandowski spots Tolisso making a run into the box and curls a superb cross around the Chelsea defence as the Frenchman smashes it on the volley to further widen the scoreline.

74' Chelsea wins a corner after Kovacic's shot is blocked by Sule. Mount's delivery is not strong as Bayern clears it comfortably.

72' Shot! A misplaced kick from Caballero is laid into Coutinho's path by Goeretzka. The Brazilian goes for his signature curler from outside the box but misses the top corner by few inches.

70' Chelsea wins a free kick just outside the box as Barkley stands over it. However, the midfielder clatters his set-piece into the Bayern wall. Flick makes his third and fourth change as he sends in Alvaro Odriozola and Corentin Tolisso for Kimmich and Thiago.

68' Bayern steps on the gas as Kimmich sends in a good corner kick which Thiago thumps down at Caballero. Alaba finds the loose ball outside the box and shoots but is straight at the keeper.

66' CLOSE! Bayern retains the ball off a corner on the edge of the area as Lewandowski sends a rasping volley at the far post which is deflected off Zouma's chest and goes narrowly wide.

65' Gnabry goes on a mazy run on the left and passes it to Davies who tries to find Lewandowski in the centre only to see Zouma cut out the pass.

63' Flick makes his first changes of the evening as he takes off Boateng and Perisic for Sule and Philippe Coutinho.

62' MISS! Muller finds space in the centre and runs into the area as Davies sends in a dangerous low cross. The striker curses his attempt after he hits it on the half volley but manages to send it over the bar.

60' Boateng hobbles off to the sidelines for the play to resume. The German looks alright as he comes back on. Flick, however, has given the order for Niklas Sule to warm up.

57' Zouma hacks a clearance long as Boateng puts in a diving header to find Neuer. The centre-back is down with pain as the medical rushes to the pitch.

55' A wave of Chelsea attacks looks imminent as Bayern's high line is put under constant pressure.  Barkley finds Hudson-Odoi on the left who lets the ball run away for a goal kick with a sloppy first touch.

53' Block! Thiago does brilliantly to win the ball in the centre and passes to Lewandowski who frees up Davies on the left. The Canadian unleashes a thunderous shot as Zouma puts his body on the line to block the attempt.

51' Chelsea is more confident on the ball as Kovacic passes to Hudson-Odoi on the left who loses the ball to Thiago.

48' Block! Abraham is put through to the goal by Kovacic with Boateng shadowing him. The striker waits for the cavalry to arrive as Thiago puts in crunching tackle from behind to take the ball away from him.

46' We are underway for the second half! Chelsea are buoyed by the goal at the end of the first half.

HALF-TIME: BAYERN MUNICH 2-1 CHELSEA

Despite being down to its bare bones squad and conceding two early goals, Chelsea can still throw Bayern a serious challenge if it can continue its momentum into the second half. Bayern, meanwhile, looked complacent at the back with Boateng and Alaba often dragged out of position by the runs of Tammy Abraham. The Blues would've been on level terms had VAR not spotted Abraham's offside for Callum Hudson-Odoi's 29th minute goal.

45+1' Chelsea wins a corner which hit long by Kante as it lands safely for Bayern to clear. The goal seems to have shaken Bayern.

44' GOAL CHELSEA! An unusual error from Manuel Neuer allows Tammy Abraham to pull one back. Emerson sends a low cross into the box which Neuer is unable to clear, Abraham pounces on the spill over and finishes with a tap-in.

43' Emerson is shown a yellow card for bringing down Goertezka with a cynical foul.

41' Chelsea is patiently waiting at the back looking to find spaces in the Bayern backline parked near the centre. However, the visitor has been unable to do that.

38' Kante, Chelsea's captain in Azpilicueta's absence, has been excellent with his work rate in the middle and attacking thirds. He robs Lewandowski off the ball and plays it to Kovacic who is unable to get it forward.

35' Muller tries to cut in from the left but is cut out by Kante and Chelsea wins a throw-in. Bayern wins back the ball as Neuer plays a cheeky lob over Abraham for a back pass.

32' Bayern regroup quickly launch another attack. Muller picks out Gnabry inside the box, but the German looses his footing and blasts it over the bar.

28' VAR DRAMA! Tammy Abraham holds up the ball brilliantly and passes it to Hudson-Odoi who is let unmarked by Kimmich as the Englishman curls one into the back of the net. However, his joy didn't lost long after VAR deems Abraham offside before he set up Hudson-Odoi for the goal. Lampard holds his arms afloat with a wry smile on his face.

27' Tammy Abraham gets Chelsea's first shot on the goal after finding himself in space between the Bayern centre-backs. Neuer is up to the task and makes a smart save.

24' GOAL BAYERN! This is battering for Lampard's side. Kovacic coughs possession on the left and loses possession to Thiago who plays it to Lewandowski, who takes his time and lays it on the platter for Perisic, who finishes with simple tap-in.

23' Davies once again shows his electric pace as he reaches the Chelsea area in a flash. However, the Canadian full-back is unable to find a pass for Muller.

21' Lampard is hollering at his players, urging them to move the ball forward, but the Blues are finding it difficult to find a pass through Bayern's high press.

19' It has been one-way traffic so far with Chelsea's half clustered with red shirts. Kovacic is lucky to get away with a warning after he pushes Goeretzka off the ball.

17' Persic finds himself in the space on the left and crosses into the box for Lewandowski. Zouma manages to head it away as Goeretzka tries a bicycle kick to no avail.

14' Muller finds himself in space in the centre and lets it fly from outside the are but his shot flies safely over the crossbar.

12' There is no way Bayern is letting Chelsea off the hook. Alphonso Davies switches on his jet pack and races into box on the left side. It took Reece James a pin-point tackle to snuff out the danger.

9' GOAL BAYERN! Lewandowski makes no mistake blasting the spot kick into the back of the net despite Caballero guessing it right. Well, that didn't take long and Chelsea is 0-4 on aggregate and the tough task just got tougher.

8' Penalty! Lewandowski looks miles offside as he gets into a one-on-one position and brought down by Caballero. Referee Ovidiu Hategan awards a penalty for the host after consulting VAR.

5'  Bayern tries to get through the Chelsea defence with crosses into the box. Kimmich bends a dangerous ball for Lewandowski who is cut out by Zouma.

3' Bayern rushes forward from a throw in as Gnabry wins a corner. Chelsea's clearance falls for Alaba who tries go from outside the area but his shot is wide. Without Jorginho and Azpilicueta, its going to be a big challenge for the Blues' defense.

1' We are off for the first half! Bayern forwardline presses higher up after Chelsea gets the proceedings underway.

Chelsea needs a miracle bigger than the 2012 Champions League final where it trailed by a goal until the final minutes of regular time before Didier Drogba's towering header took the match into extra time. Bayern was at its ruthless best at Stamford Bridge in February as Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring while Serge Gnabry scored twice in a 3-0 away win.

 

It might be a relief for Lampard to see N'Golo Kante and Callum Hudson-Odoi make it back to the Starting XI. Kingsley Coman, meanwhile, does not find a place in Bayern's bench.

Line-ups:

Bayern (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Kimmich, Boateng, Alaba, Davies; Goretzka, Thiago; Gnabry, Muller, Perisic; Lewandowski

Chelsea (4-3-3): Caballero; Emerson, Zouma, Christensen, James; Kovacic, Kante, Barkley; Mount, Abraham, Hudson-Odoi

Hansi Flick

A little bit about the coaches:

Before Hans-Dieter Flick was appointed as the head coach at Bayern , he was previously a player for Die Roten. The Heidelberg native joined Bayern in 1986 and played for it until 1990. He made 137 appearances for the club winning four Bundesliga title and one DFB Cup. At prematurely ending his player career at the age of 28 due to a major injury, Flick coached Hoffenheim, Salzburg and was Joachim Low's assistant during Germany's 2014 FIFA World Cup win.

Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard made 648 appearances in 13 years for Chelsea and is the club's all-time topscorer with 210 goals. He won three Premier League titles, 4 FA Cups, 2 League Cups, 1 Europa League and 1 Champions League. After retiring from professional football, he coached Championship side Derby County before returning to Chelsea in 2019 as its head coach.

Head-to-head: Both the teams have faced each other in five times so far with Bayern winning two of them and two others ending in a draw. Chelsea's win came in the dramatic 2012 final at Bayern's home ground of Allianz Arena where Didier Drogba sealed the Blues' first European title by scoring the final penalty in the shootout.

Following the final loss in 2012, Bayern came back strongly the next season to win the treble - Bundesliga, DFB Cup and the Champions League in 2013. It faced that season's Europa League winner Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup. The match ended 2-2 after Javi Martinez equalised in the final seconds of the added time. Bayern went on to lift the Super Cup by winning the shootout 5-4.

Team News: Frank Lampard will have a heavily depleted squad in his hand following the FA Cup final defeat against Arsenal. Forwards Pedro, Christian Pulisic and captain Cesar Azpilicueta are out due to injuries while N'golo Kante, Willian, Ruben Loftus-Cheek are doubtful to start. To further compound issues, the Blues will be without star midfielder Jorginho and key defender Marcos Alonso due to suspensions. Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick will be without the services of left-back Benjamin Pavard due to an ankle injury while French winger Kingsley Coman is doubtful for the tie after limping off a training session yesterday.
