Bayern Munich vs Chelsea head to head

The game will take place 165 days after the first leg at Stamford Bridge (25 February).

Frank Lampard captained the winning Chelsea side the last time we played at the Allianz Arena in the 2012 Champions League final.

Of the 22 players who started the 2012 Champions League final, just three remain at the clubs – all for Bayern Munich – Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng and Thomas Muller.

The five previous matches in all competitions between Chelsea and Bayern Munich have produced 20 goals, an average of four per game.

Bayern and Chelsea first met in the 2004/05 Champions League quarter-finals. Jose Mourinho’s Blues prevailed 6- 5 on aggregate against Felix Magath’s Bayern. Chelsea won the first leg 4-2 at home, Lampard scoring twice with Drogba also on target. Lampard and Drogba struck again in the second leg as Bayern won 3-2 on the night but went out on aggregate.

Prior to this season, our most recent meeting was in the Super Cup in 2013 when Bayern, with Pep Guardiola in charge, won on penalties after extra-time.
