Bayern Munich vs Chelsea Highlights: Bayern have a three-goal cushion going into the second leg.

UEFA Champions League 2020, Bayern Munich vs Chelsea Highlights: Bayern Munich progressed to the quarter-final stage of the UEFA Champions League after defeating Chelsea 4-1 in the second leg of their tie, winning 7-1 on aggregate, at the Allianz Arena in Munich on Saturday.

Robert Lewandowski started the rout against a weakened Chelsea side in the 9th minute itself from the penalty spot. The Polish talisman then set up Ivan Perisic for Bayern’s second before Tammy Abraham offered the faintest of hope to the visitors with an away goal. In the second half, Chelsea were kept at bay easily as Bayern scored two — Corentin Tolisso with a volley and Lewandowski again, with a towering header.

Bayern, who will face Barcelona in their quarter-final next Friday, became the first team to start a UEFA Champions League campaign with eight consecutive wins in the competition’s current format, scoring 31 goals in the process.

Bayern to face Barcelona in the quarters

Despite all the heart and all the verve, Chelsea came up short against a mighty Bayern Munich, who are considered to be favourites of the competition. A brace from Lewandowski, and couple of goals from Perisic and Tolisso helped the German giants inflict a 7-1 win aggregate defeat to Chelsea in the end. That's their eighth successive UCL victory, scoring 31 goals in the process. On the other hand, Barcelona go through to the quarters with a 4-2 aggregate win over Napoli after a 3-1 win in the second leg at Camp Nou. 

02:13 (IST)09 Aug 2020
83' LEWAAAANDOWWSKKIIIII!

That same man again, and this time with a towering far post header from Odriozola's cross. Chelsea too slow, too defeated. Lewandowski's 53rd goal of the season and 13th of his UEFA Champions League campaign. 

02:10 (IST)09 Aug 2020
80' Substitutions galore

Javi Martinez is on for Gnabry. Flick trying to shut down shop here. Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud is on for Chelsea, replacing the goalscorer Abraham. Into the final 10 minutes now.

02:05 (IST)09 Aug 2020
76' TOLLIIIISSOOOO!

THE FRENCHMAN SCORES! Tolisso is waved on through as Chelsea's defence watch a cross come in from Lewandowski and the substitute gleefully sidefoots in under no pressure. All but over for Chelsea now.

02:00 (IST)09 Aug 2020
70' Double change for Bayern

Alvaro Odriozola and Corentin Tolisso are on for Kimmich and Thiago respectively.

01:58 (IST)09 Aug 2020
67' A flurry of Bayern chances

After Lewandowski's snapshot skimmed past the Chelsea goal, Thiago's free header from a corner is denied by Willy Caballero. Alaba's subsequent shot is straight at the Chelsea goalkeeper. Chelsea are on the backfoot a bit.

01:53 (IST)09 Aug 2020
64' Substitutions for Bayern

Niklas Sule and Philippe Coutinho come on for Boateng and Perisic.

01:49 (IST)09 Aug 2020
60' Bayern in control, Boateng injured

Neither side made any change at half time, and the play resumed with Chelsea playing with more vigour. Both sides had couple of chances, for Mount and Perisic, but both times the goalkeepers secured the ball. Meanwhile, Hudson-Odoi's nudge from behind injures Boateng and Bayern are now playing with ten men after the defender limps off with the medical team.

01:21 (IST)09 Aug 2020
HT: Bayern Munich (5) 2-1 (1) Chelsea

An entertaining half comes to an end, dominated entirely by Bayern Munich who got two early goals through Lewandowski and Perisic. Chelsea had a disallowed goal after Hudson-Odoi had curled an effort from outside of the box, but Abraham scored their first of the tie just before the half time. Still a long way to go for Lampard's side as they need four more goals to progress to quarters. On the other hand, Barcelona are leading 4-2 against Napoli on aggregate after Lenglet, Messi and Suarez scored for the home side. Napoli's Insigne scored from the penalty spot right towards the end of the first half. 

01:17 (IST)09 Aug 2020
44' ABBBRRAAHAAAAM!

CHELSEA GET ONE! In one of their forays into the Bayern half, Hudson-Odoi gets past Kimmich with his blistering pace and crosses inside the box to find a Chelsea man, but Neuer palms it in the way of Abraham, who just taps it in. 

01:15 (IST)09 Aug 2020
42' Emerson shown yellow card

Emerson is booked for a foul on Goretzka down the right wing. Frustration at its peak. 

01:13 (IST)09 Aug 2020
40' Chelsea still clueless

Chelsea are looking for ways to get closer to the Bayern goal but it has been overhit crosses and wayward longballs so far. Apart from that Hudson-Odoi wonder-strike which was ultimately cancelled, the visitors are yet to take control of the game as Bayern are always breaking ahead looking for a third goal of the tie. A story of utter domination tonight.

01:02 (IST)09 Aug 2020
28' Chelsea denied a goal

One minute, Chelsea celebrate a brilliant curling effort from outside of the box by the young Hudson-Odoi... the next, Lampard reacts angrily after VAR ruled the goal offside for Abraham, who had played the pass to the winger.

00:58 (IST)09 Aug 2020
26' Barcelona (3) 2-0 (1) Napoli
00:57 (IST)09 Aug 2020
25' PERIIIISSSIIICCCC!

AND IT'S DOUBLE THE TROUBLE! In a breathtaking counter attack by the Bavarians, Lewandowski finds himself in space right outside the box and picks out the unmarked Perisic in the right wing, who picks his spot all too easily.

00:48 (IST)09 Aug 2020
14' Muller's shot just high

Chelsea are struggling to get out of their own half as Bayern Munich go on the hunt for another, Thomas Muller flashing an effort just over the bar. Frank Lampard's side need to score four goals tonight to progress.

00:46 (IST)09 Aug 2020
11' Barcelona (2) 1-0 (1) Napoli

Barcelona's Clement Lenglet scores with a free header from an Ivan Rakitic corner to give his side the lead! Barcelona are going through to the quarters with a 2-1 lead. 

00:43 (IST)09 Aug 2020
9' LEWWWWANNDDOOOOWSSSKKIIIII

And of course! Robert Lewandowski scores his 12th Champions League goal of the season with a calm penalty to Caballero's left. The Polish international's 52nd goal of the season!
