On Tuesday, starting at 20:00 pm, the match Chelsea – Bayern will be played, within the best of the Champions League, mansa tour, the 2019/2020 season. We will attend the fifth straight match between the two European super powers, and the record is equal, 2-2. After the Champions League quarters (2004/2005) – one win each, Chelsea won the trophy at the 2012 edition, and Bayern took revenge in the 2013 European Super Cup.
Positive rehearsal for Chelsea before the match with Bayern, winning the 2-1 London derby against Tottenham and Jose Mourinho. Frank Lampard’s students are having a very uncomfortable season and it seems that the second part of the season is below that of autumn. Chelsea qualified in extremis in the best of the Champions League, finishing in second place in a group with Valencia, Ajax and Lille. With an extremely fragile defense, 37 goals received in 27 Premier League stages, the “blue” have a modest record with the top teams in England. Considering the disputes with Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United, Chelsea have won in just 3 of the 9 matches so far.
Bayern controls the situation in the Bundesliga without much emotion, holding respect for rivals like Leipzig or Dortmund. With 6 wins in 7 matches in 2020, Hansi Flick’s team has a formidable goal in these matches, 23-7. In the Champions League, Bayern are still thinking of defeating Chelsea in the final of the 2012 edition, even at the Allianz Arena, and the rematch of the European Super Cup seems too little. The Bavarians are big favorites even on Stamford Bridge, and Tuesday’s game is the second in London this season, after that 7-2 story with Tottenham in the group stage. Probably the score will be narrower, but Bayern has the ability to make the most of the defensive problems of the Londoners.
The draw with Ajax in the group stage, score 4-4, seems to be the “end” of the season for Frank Lampard and Chelsea, who did not score a big victory. Perhaps the success in Amsterdam, score 1-0, is to be commended, but it was a very strange duel. Regardless of the number of goals scored on Tuesday, Chelsea do not have the strength to overcome Bayern. Although Lampard will motivate his exemplary footballers, something special is needed to win with Bayern.
