Chelsea kick off their Uefa Champions League knockout stage with a difficult last-16 test against Bayern Munich tonight.

Frank Lampard's Blues missed out on top spot in Group H to Valencia, and that could end up proving costly after being drawn against German champions Bayern in the round-of-16.

The Bundesliga behemoths sauntered through the group stages with six wins from six, including a stunning 7-2 win over Tottenham in north London.

Chelsea have struggled for results at home this season, but Lampard will be looking for a second big result in a row after seeing off Spurs at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Date: Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Venue: Stamford Bridge, London

Kick-off time: 8pm GMT

Prediction: Chelsea 1-2 Bayern

Having seen Bayern leave London with a huge victory once already this season, Chelsea have been well warned of the Bundesliga giants' capability.

Saturday's Premier League win over Spurs will boost morale, but the Blues will need a truly special performance to avoid a defeat here.
