No surprises as Bayern Munich name 19-man squad for Chelsea clash

Bayern Munich have named a 19-man squad that will travel to face Chelsea in the first leg of the Champions League knockout phase.

The Blues host the Bavarians on Tuesday at the Stamford Bridge, in what will be their first match since the finals in 2012. 

In the match at the famous Allianz Arena, Frank Lampard captained the Blues to a penalty shoot-out win, after the match ended 1-1 in regulation and extra time.

No major surprises in the squad heading to London, with the likes of  Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, David Alaba, Manuel Neuer all available.

Few familiar faces will be making a return to England, with Phillipe Coutinho, who has played for Liverpool and former Gunner Serge Gnabry part of the traveling squad. 

Javi Martinez, who returned to training recently, has not been included as he steps up his recovery, same as defender Niklas Sule, who has been missing for long. 

Ivan Perisic too is out of the tie after suffering an ankle injury in training earlier in the month.

Here is the full squad;
