The Two most supreme champions of Europe clash for a truly mouth watering encounter on Friday and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has already been talking up his sides chances by beginning his customary mind games with opposite number, and former rival, Pep Guardiola.
The Special One has wasted little time in sticking the boot into the former Barcelona man by saying that the current Bayern side aren’t as good as last season’s all conquering juggernaut under Jupp Heynckes.
Bayern are unbeaten in three games already this season, having won their opening three Bundesliga encounters and maintaing that run with a 2-1 win over FC Nurnberg at the weekend.
Chelsea, however, despite back to back victories over Hull City and Aston Villa were not able to overcome defending champions Manchester United on Monday night and had to settle with a goalless draw.
Mourinho will be expected to make some heavy changes for this game, with at least one of his strikers thought to be making an appearance after Andre Schurrle led the line against United.
