🧩 Bayern vs Chelsea betting preview: Depleted Blues playing for pride

Chelsea's FA Cup final defeat against Arsenal came at a further cost with a trio of key first-teamers limping off injured and Bayern Munich is unlikely to feel any sympathy. 

🗣 Context

Bayern bulldozed their way to the Bundesliga title for the eighth year running and they capped that off by beating Bayer Leverkusen in the DFB Pokal Final. They hold a 3-0 aggregate lead over Chelsea ahead of this round of 16 second leg tie which means nothing short of a miracle will see The Blues advance. Frank Lampard's visitors lost the FA Cup final against Arsenal after going into an early lead, reinforcing a worrying trend of Chelsea failing to put teams away after conceding too many goals. Injuries to experienced duo Pedro & skipper Cesar Azpiliueta, as well as talented youngster Christian Pulisic, hardly help their cause ahead of a trip to Bavaria.
