The second week of the Champions League 1/8 finals is here, and it promises to bring us a high level of great football emotions. One of the games that attract attention is between the game's host Chelsea and Bayern Munich. The repetition of the 2012 Champions League final (which Chelsea won by penalties) is waited by the whole football community, as both teams are highly motivated to reach the trophy this year. The experts' opinion points out that Bayern has better chances to go through the next round, and the team already started thinking about treble this season. Still, Chelsea shouldn't be underestimated as their major aim this year is namely the Champions League. The bookmakers' odds that you can find on our Odds Comparison are pretty generous for both teams, but it is noticeable that Bayern is the bookmakers' favorite.

One of the traditional English teams Chelsea is working under the leadership of its legend Frank Lampard. The squad is not with the same quality as in the past when Lampard has played with teammates like John Terry, Ballack, and Drogba. However, the coach managed to create a core between experienced players and skillful youngsters that are growing up in games like that with Bayern. Chelsea is at the 4th position in the English Premier League, 30 points behind Liverpool, and its major battle is for the Champions League direct places. The host advantage on the first game has to stimulate the players to show that they are able to fight with one of the biggest teams in Europe, and we are sure that players like Giroud, Barkley, Kovacic, and Willian could oppose Bayern's stars. If you think that Chelsea is capable of winning this game, you can find odds for that market around 4.50 on our Odds Comparison, which could bring you excellent profits.
Another year with high Bayern ambitions. 1/8 CL final, 1st Bundesliga's place, and 1/4 Cup final, makes it definitely clear why Bayern's fans are dreaming so much. The coach Hans-Dieter Flick calms players in the dressing room, and now the team's superstars are again motivated to win and play as best as they can. Bayern possesses players such as Lewandowski, Coutinho, Gnabry, Alaba, Muller, which can hardly be stopped even with extraordinary performance. The aggressive style of play that the team is showing and the quality of the players is the reason why the bookmakers and the experts think that the games against Chelsea are only a step to the trophy for Bayern Munich. The team won all of its group stage games, in which it scored 24 goals and received only 5. The bookmakers offer odds around 1.80 for Bayern's win, which according to us are quite high and not often provided for the German team.
Head to head statistics
The teams have played five games against each other. Bayern won two of the games, while Chelsea won only one. Two matches finished as a draw. The interesting fact is that all games (100%) ended with over 1.5 goals.

Our opinion about the game is based on the fact that both teams will play more on the attacking side, while the defence will not be a priority.
