(c) (VAVEL/Adam Millington) 



Thank you for following the game with VAVEL. I've been Niall Jackson and thank you for your eyes over the last 90-minutes. Please keep across for reaction pieces as Bayern progress to the Champions League quarter-finals. It looks like they'll face Barcelona on Friday evening, who are 4-2 up on aggregate against Napoli, with little time left to play. 


Frank Lampard’s Chelsea bowed out of this season’s Champions League at the round of 16 stage as they put up a spirited fight in the second-leg of the tie, ultimately losing 4-1 to Bayern Munich. Goals from Robert Lewandowski and Ivan Perisic put the men from Bavaria in control before Tammy Abraham pulled a goal back for the visitors in the stroke of half-time. Despite starting the second half well, Chelsea couldn’t take their chances, and were made to pay as two further goals from Lewandowski and Tolliso saw Bayern through on a resounding 7-1 scoreline over the two-legs.

86' 7-1 on aggregate now to BAYERN

Before Arsenal fans start, we didn't lose 10-2 over two legs. 

83' GOAL Bayern

A superb cross from Odriozola is met by Robert Lewandowski, who scores his second goal of the night and third over two-legs. 

81' Chelsea change

First substitution from Frank Lampard this evening sees him go like for like up-top, as Tammy Abraham makes way for Olivier Giroud. 

80' BAYERN Substitution

Final change for the hosts sees Javi Martinez replace former Arsenal youngster Serge Gnabry. 


Game over. Chelsea's young side have battled well, but it's their defensive frailties letting them down again. No tracker from midfield allows Tolliso a free run into the box to meet Davies's out-swinging cross, rifling the ball past Caballero. 

72' James goes close

Superb play from the Blues as they work the ball well down the left-flank. The ball finds Reece James in a central position, the full-back shoots just high of Bayern's goal. 

70' Two more changes for the hosts

Corentin Tolliso replaces Thiago Alacantra, whilst Joshua Kimmich is replaced by Alvaro Odriozola. 

69' As you were

Barkley's free-kick doesn't have the required leverage to beat the Bayern wall. Should've done better.

68' Barkley wins a free-kick on the edge of the BAYERN area

Ross Barkley does well to win the foul. Couldn't be 2-2? Could it? 

66' Bayern go close

Following on from Robert Lewandowski's strike that deflected behind for a corner, Thiago finds himself with a free header in the 6-yard box,  which he thankfully, from a Blues point of view, puts straight at Willy Caballero. 

Lampard will be fuming with that. 

64' BAYERN Substitution

First changes of the night for either side as former Liverpool man Philipe Coutinho enters the fray, replacing  goalscorer Ivan Perisic.


Their second change sees Niklas Sule replace  Jerome Boateng, with his Manager not taking any chances in leaving Boateng on the pitch for the last half an hour. 

61' Muller goes close

Bayern work the ball well down the left-hand side, with Alfonso Davies whipping the cross in onto the foot of Thomas Muller. The forward can only strike his shot over the bar though. 

59' Doesn't look nice for Boateng

Chasing a ball with Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi, Jerome Boateng pulled up lame as he went to the floor. Bit of treatment though and the German international is good to carry on. Nothing beats the magic sponge. 

52' Superb block from Zouma

Having won the ball well in midfield, Bayern break forward, with Kingsley Coman striking towards goal. As he does however, Chelsea centre-half Kurt Zouma, throws himself infant of the line of the ball. Superb defending. 

48' First Blues chances of second period

Chelsea have started the second half exactly how they finished the first and go close through Mount and Barkley within a minute of each other. 

46' Back underway

We're back underway here at the Allianz Arena. 45 minutes left for Chelsea to restore their pride. 

Half-time: FC BAYERN 2-1 CHELSEA

Bayern have dominated the majority of the play, taking a deserved two-goal lead via Lewandowski and Perisic respectively. Frank Lampard's Chelsea have however, began to show they're here for a match in the last 10 minutes leading up to half-time. A good second-half awaits I think.

45' One minute added

One minuted stoppage time at the end of the first half. 


Okay I'll eat my words slightly. Neuer spills an Emerson cross into the path of Tammy Abraham, who taps in from close range. Game on? 

42' Yellow Card- Emerson (Chelsea)

Late challenge, got nowhere near the ball. Correct decision from the man in the middle. 

38' Abraham has offered nothing so far

Is it a coincidence so far that every time I have seen Tammy Abraham try and get involved he's been in an offside position? No, didn't think so. 

27' Thats criminal (GOAL disallowed)

Game on! Perhaps tie on? Callum Hudson-Odoi, a Bayern transfer target last season has played an absolute peach of a shot beyond Bayern's goalkeeper. 

It should've stood, but VAR deems Tammy Abraham offside and in the line of vision of the goalkeeper. Shocking decision. 

26' Blues first chance and corner

Following going two-nil, Emerson tests Manuel Neuer for the first time this evening. Only took 26 minutes. Not good. 


Tie over, if it wasn't before the second-leg began, as Ivan Perisic gets on the end of a swift Bayern attack, sweeping the ball beyond Caballero, who could do little to prevent him. 

24' No drinks break

Anyone else loving the fact there is no drinks break, or is it just me? Get in there. 

18' Bayern go close again

The referee plays a good advantage, which allows Bayern to work the ball into the final third. The final ball-in from Kingsley Coman however, is just beyond the reach of a Bayern attacker in the 6-yard box.

13' Blues struggling to get a foot-hold in the game

It's been all Bayern so far as they go close again through Thomas Muller. It could be a long-night for Lampard's side.


Lewandowski finds the top corner with his spot-kick, with Frank Lampard's side now having an even bigger mountain to climb. 

8' Penalty

Lewandowski breaks through on goal, winning a foul from Caballero as he breaks beyond him with the ball, it's a penalty for the hosts. 

2' Early chance for hosts

Following, that was originally cleared by Chelsea, David Alaba takes a crack from long distance, well wide of Cabellero's net though. 

0' Kick-off

0' - Kick-off : Let's watch the next 90-minutes of tantalising action and for hopefully for Frank Lampard, talismanic, action unfold. 

Five minutes to go

I don't know about anyone else, but I can imagine Frank Lampard's has said his prayers for this evening already. 

His side have the ability to make themselves history makers this evening- I for one believe they can do it.
