Favorite Bayern want to take Stamford Bridge! Chelsea vs Bayern betting predictions & odds – Champions League 2020 by PicksSoccer.com
When you hear the Chelsea pairing against FC Bayern, the “Finale dahoam” inevitably comes to mind. In 2012, the two clubs faced each other in the premier class. The Munich team had several hands on the pot at the time, but were defeated in a dramatic penalty shootout.
Chelsea vs Bayern Betting Predictions and Odds
Many players from that time are no longer at the start. On the Chelsea side, Frank Lampard is now the Blues coach. At Bayern, Manuel Neuer, Thomas Müller, David Alaba or Jerome Boateng will probably always carry this wound around with them. In the knockout round of the premier class there is once again the chance for revenge for the German record champions.
Bayern were the best team in the premier class in Europe in the group stage. With six wins, the Munich marched through and were able to prevail against the local rival of the blues, the Tottenham Hotspurs. Now we report again in the Champions League tips about a game between Bayern and an English club.
Chelsea faced serious difficulties against Lille, Ajax Amsterdam and Valencia in the group stage. In the end, it is enough for second place. However, the appearances did not encourage the knockout games. Therefore, the bookmakers in the duel between Chelsea and Bayern according to odds give a clear prediction of the German record champions.
This should also be due to the fact that the English have always been eliminated in the round of 16 in the last three seasons of the Champions League. The blues are currently not among the absolute top elite in Europe. Therefore, the tip on an away win could fit in the first leg between Chelsea and Bayern.
After the convincing performances of the German teams in the first legs in the European Cup so far, a victory for FC Bayern would be the icing on the cake. The kick-off for the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League between Chelsea and Bayern Munich at Stamford Bridge will take place on February 25, 2020.
Chelsea – Statistics & current form
The blues are changing. Due to a transfer ban, Frank Lampard is trying to develop some young talents this season. Therefore, the renewed qualification for the premier class would be a success for the blues. Frank Lampard’s team is currently fourth in the Premier League table.
The back door – over a triumph in the Europa League – will no longer exist for the Londoners this season. There have been only one defeat for Chelsea in the last five competitive games. Four of these games were played against Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and Leicester. Therefore, this latest record is an indication of a good condition for the blues.
The blues are distinguished by their international strength
In addition, Chelsea has been extremely strong at home in the European Cup in recent years. In the last 14 home games on the international stage, the blues only suffered one defeat. There was no defeat at all at Stamford Bridge against a German team. In nine duels there are six wins and three draws.
That would be a reason not to tend to predict an away win in the match between Chelsea and Bayern. In addition, the English have never failed at a German club over the second leg. History does not make the blues a favorite in the duel against Bayern in the odds comparison of the betting base.
Successful dress rehearsal with a 2-1 victory over Tottenham
There was another racism incident last weekend. Right in the middle Antonio Rüdiger, who not only made an own goal in the 2-1 win against Tottenham, but who was racially insulted by the guest fans. The goals from Olivier Giroud and Marcos Alonso were the correct answer from Chelsea.
The blues are expected to line up on Tuesday in the same formation as last weekend. To what extent the strength of Olivier Giroud will reach after his comeback on Saturday remains to be seen. Not sure is N’Golo Kante, who will take a break because of a muscle injury just like Marco van Ginkel.
Probable lineup of Chelsea:
↳ Caballero – Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rüdiger – James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Marcos Alonso – Barkley, Mount – Giroud
↳ Coach: Lampard
Last games from Chelsea:
⚽️ 02/22/2020 – Chelsea vs. Tottenham 2-1 (Premier League)

Bayern – Statistics & current form
After the bumpy start to the season under Niko Kovac, Bayern have stabilized significantly under Hansi Flick. Although Karl-Heinz Rummenigge now calls the coach in the same breath as Louis van Gaal, Jupp Heynckes or Pep Guardiola, the situation regarding the instructor’s contract is still unclear.
Hansi Flick has led FC Bayern to the top of the German upper house. Currently, the lead over the first chase RB Leipzig is only one point. The fight for the title remains exciting. Of course, we keep up to date with the progress of the championship race in our Bundesliga tips every week.
Bayern with an impressive series in the past few weeks
There have been no defeats in the last eleven competitive matches. It doesn’t sound as if the odds of a home win for the Blues had to be targeted in the duel between Chelsea and Bayern. With Robert Lewandowski, who has scored ten times in the premier class this season, Bayern also have the best clippers of the current Champions League in their ranks.
Last Friday it became clear how much the head can influence a football game. With Chelsea in the back of their heads, Bayern choked to a 3-2 home win over bottom-placed Paderborn. The deficit by Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski was able to equalize Paderborn twice before Robert Lewandowski scored the winner shortly before the final whistle and is one of top 5 football players in Europe.
Great away series of Bayern in the European Cup
However, Thomas Müller did not want to attach too much importance to this game. With twelve unbeaten away games in the European Cup, the 2014 world champion knows that the blues have great respect for Munich.
“Chelsea and all other international teams have respect for us. You saw how we got through the group. We confidently go into the game and want to win. ” – Thomas Müller
Whether Leon Goretzka can contribute his part to the victory will only be decided at short notice. The midfielder has started running again and could at least be an option. The three long-term injuries Javi Martinez, Ivan Perisic and Niklas Süle are also not among them, who could possibly only become alternatives again at the end of the season.
Probable lineup of Bayern:
↳ Neuer – Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies – Kimmich, Thiago – Müller, Coman, Gnabry – Lewandowski
↳ Coach: Flick
Last games from Bayern:
⚽️ 02/21/2020 – Bayern vs. Paderborn 3: 2 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 16.02.2020 – Cologne vs. Bayern 1: 4 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 02/09/2020 – Bayern vs. RB Leipzig 0: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 05.02.2020 – Bayern vs. TSG Hoffenheim 4: 3 (DFB Cup)
⚽️ 02/01/2020 – Mainz vs. Bayern 1: 3 (Bundesliga)
