The bruised Chelsea arrive for the rematch in Munich when they need a miracle. Will Bayern Munich downshift and retain strength for the quarter-finals?
Saturday 08 August 2020
Bayern Munich finished the league games in Germany more than a month ago. Since then she has also managed to win the German Cup with a 2: 4 victory over Leverkusen thus completing a great double. A week ago she played against Marseille in a friendly match which she won 0: 1. For this game it comes with a big 0: 3 advantage in London over Chelsea which should definitely be enough to do. Kingsley Coman and Benjamin Pavard will be out tonight due to injuries.
Her opponent in this game will be Chelsea who finished the season in England in fourth place and with a ticket to the Champions League for next season. Her disappointment was exactly a week ago in the loss to Arsenal in the English Cup final. She came out pretty bruised from this game and tonight she will have to make do without the injured Christian Polisic, Azpiliquata, Pedro and Loftus Chick with Giorgini and Marcus Alonso suspended. Willian, who is on his way to Arsenal, is in great doubt.
Except for the first game in the quarter-finals, the teams had previously met in the Champions Cup in the summer of 2017 when Bayern won 2: 3. They had previously played in the 2012 Champions League final when Chelsea won on penalties.
Our bet X, a victory of Bayern Munich by a difference of one goal (-1), in a ratio of 3.50.
