Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Bayern Munich v. Chelsea Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Bayern Munich have a huge advantage heading into this contest against Chelsea, as the Bundesliga champions earned a 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge in the first leg, aided by Serge Gnabry's double and a strike from Robert Lewandowski. Things are simple ahead of this matchup: Chelsea must score at least three goals while keeping a clean sheet to have a chance of turning things around. Bayern would probably get the job done if they score a goal given their sizable lead in the aggregate score. By all accounts, Bayern should be treated as favorites ahead of this contest; they are the better side and also have the advantage of playing at home, even with no fans in the seats.
