You have to think that most Chelsea fans have accepted that they’re out of the Champions League after a 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich last night, but they now have a few weeks to build some hope again.
It would truly be a result for the ages if they turned this round, but let’s not forget that Chelsea are a good team and if they can score first then you never know.
There’s also some good news for Frank Lampard in the build up to the return leg, after a report from Germany indicated that Robert Lewandowski should miss the game through injury:

With the second leg due to be played on the 18th of March, that means the Polish superstar should be missing. Even if he was approaching fitness, it would be a big gamble for Bayern to play him with the tie seemingly over.
To make it through you have to think that Chelsea will need to keep a clean sheet, so Bayern missing their best striker is a boost, but it may not be enough.
