Unbeaten in their last five Champions League matches, Chelsea come into tonight’s clash with German giants Bayern Munich on a high. It’s got all the ingredients of a massive knockout night and we’ll help you discover how to get a Chelsea vs Bayern Munich live stream, no matter where in the world you are.
The Blues notched up a much needed domestic 2-1 victory over bitter London rivals Tottenham at the weekend, ending a run of four Premier League matches without a win. Frank Lampard’s side will need to put in a similar performance at home this evening against a Bayern Munich side that has not lost a competitive match since the beginning of December.
Bayern were somewhat below par at home against bottom of the table Paderborn in the Bundesliga one Friday. While they eventually edged to a 3-2 victory thanks to a late double from Robert Lewandowski, Hans-Dieter Flick’s side looked to be playing with one eye on tonight’s game in London.
With 38 goals in 32 games for Bayern this season, Lewandowski is in the best form of his storied career, and containing the prolific Polish striker will be key to any Chelsea success tonight. The Blues will also need to get grips with the absence of midfield dynamo N’Golo Kante who remains sidelined with injury with Mateo Kovacic set to deputise.
Meanwhile, Bayern welcome back Jerome Boateng and Benjamin Pavard who missed Friday’s Bundesliga match through suspension.
