Description: BAY Vs CHE Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Chelsea in a perilous situation with this encounter having the possibility of going horribly awry for them.
While Chelsea were always going to be second best in this round of 16 clash, the manner in which the Premier League side was schooled by Bayern Munich left the side’s boisterous supporters aghast. And things can go horrendously wrong for the side once again today when it goes to square off against the German side for the second time in this double-header.
Defensively suspect as ever, Chelsea go to play this impending outing have been reeled by injuries. The club is without over half of its regular starters, a weakened side looking to overturn a 3-0 deficit against a rampant Bayern Munich side which hasn’t played in almost a month.
These are all facets which allude towards this turning out to be a real battering for Chelsea. There’s little to play for the side today and with Bayern Munich looking to set a statement of intent for the glistening title, the side could end up ripping Chelsea into shreds and emulating their electric attacking displays which won them the Bundesliga trophy earlier last month.

No matter how hard we try, we just can’t give Chelsea a chance on the day. A sinking ship defensively, this backline can easily be opened up and unravelled by a Bayern Munich side in fluent touch.

Dream 11 Picks
With Kepa’s time done with at Chelsea, Willy Caballero is going to be asked to take over the side’s defensive duties once again. And while he’s not going to keep a cleansheet by any stretch of the imagination, the goal-keeper is capable of pulling off a solid amount of saves from the carnage set to be unleashed his way.
With this tie done with for Bayern Munich as the club carries a sizeable advantage into the affair, the club can control proceedings across the 90 minutes. Not only will they dictate play today but also see out the clash without any qualms, a fixture which can easily end up with a second straight cleansheet for Bayern Munich in a constant involving the two.
The discourse sees both the CBs, David Alaba and Boateng being indulged in by us from the side. They are joined by fullback Alphonso Davies who ran Chelsea to the ground the last time around as he persistently involved himself in the side’s attacks.
He scored against Chelsea the last time these two sides met in the competition to take his tally to six goals and Serge Gnabry can easily end up adding to that tally today. Joshua Kimmich comes in to partner up with him, someone whose versatile skill set has seen him be involved in both the dockets of the side’s gameplan.
Chelsea on the other hand will see Mason Mount be a nailed on pick by us. With almost everyone in the attacking facet injured, he’ll be asked to take up the wide attacking role and show why he’s been nominated for the Premier League’s Young Player of the Year award.
Matteo Kovacic joins up with him, a player who has taken over the reigns of Chelsea’s midfield this season to emerge as the side’s Player of the Season.
11 goals for Bayern Munich in the tournament and Robert Lewandowski is eyeing another top scorer award for himself this season. Thomas Muller with two goals comes in alongside him, a partnership which will give Chelsea a throbbing headache today.
Olivier Giroud was responsible for guiding Chelsea into the Champions League with his 7 goals since the restart to make the striker a must have pick from the visiting side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
11 goals for Lewandowski made him our only choice as the day’s captain while Gnabry is the vice-captain.
