Chelsea has been quite impressive this season, and not advancing out of this game shouldn’t really look as a bad thing because they found a lot of success during the Premier League. This has been Frank Lampard’s first year in charge of the club, had to deal with a transfer ban, but still found the success.
One of the big reasons for Chelsea’s success this year has been the play of American Christian Plusic who is quickly becoming a superstar. The big issue for Chelsea in this game is they probably won’t be without Plusic. Coming into this game Chelsea’s last game was against Arsenal against FA Cup.They had the first goal in that game, but they gave up two straight goals and that led to the loss.
In this game down big Chelsea is going to need to try and get the first goal in the 20 minutes if they want any chance to make up the big difference.
On the other side of this matchup is Bayern Munich who won the Bundesliga and they come into this game playing really well. Evein in their last game when most of their stars were resting, they still were able to come away with a 1-0 victory. One of the big questions now for Bayern is who will be starting in this game. Munich really just needs to play a defensive style, and they won’t really need to push players forward. If Bayern Munich were to give up the first goal there style might change a little bit, starting to push more players forward.
Chelsea might not advance, but even the shorthanded squad is going to get at least one goal and come way with the victory. There is way too much value with Chelsea sitting at +700. If you want you could also beat Chelsea on the money line with a draw being a no bet. Back Chelsea.
