The champions of England Chelsea is playing against the champions of Germany, Bayern Munich. From this sentence, anybody can conclude that the upcoming game cannot be anything else but the spectacle.
When German and English teams meet, there is nothing friendly in those clashes. Simply the rivalry between these two nation is incredibly intense, and every match has a huge importance.
The same thing will be applied to this one, which will take place in Singapore.
Both teams have one thing in common, and that is the fact that they have played against Arsenal in the recent days. Chelsea had more success, while on the other hand, Bayern got away with a draw. That doesn’t have to mean anything, and we can’t wait for the ball to start rolling.
Antonio Conte’s boys were excellent against Arsenal, and they smashed the Gunners with 3-0. As always, Willian was perfect scoring the opener. However, the central figure was somebody else. Michy Batshuayi, the 23-year-old Belgian star, scored two goals and proved that he has enormous quality. Regarding the game against Bayern, we will probably see the latest signing of the Blues, Alvaro Morata. The Spanish striker was paid £67 million, therefore we expect him to start immediately.
Bayern Munich Preview
The German champion has been struggling lately. In the most recent two games they haven’t won, scoring only one goal. After a draw against Arsenal 1-1, the Bavarians were humiliated against AC Milan. The 4-0 loss was one of the toughest in the recent years. What worries the fans is the lack of efficiency in attack. Nevertheless, the German champion suffered many changes, and the players are still adjusting to the new requirements and the environment. Corentin Tolisso, James Rodriguez, and Julian Brandt, all these player are new to the system, and it takes some time for them to get know it.
With a win against Chelsea, all previous results will be out of the picture, and we are sure that Carlo Ancelotti knows how to play against his former club.
Head to head matches
Chelsea and Bayern Munich have encountered 4 times so far. Both clubs have one victory a piece and two draws. But those two draws came in the final trophy matches. The first one was in the finals of Champions League in 2012, when the Blues won after the penalties. And the other one came one year later, in UEFA Super Cup, but this time Bayern had more success.
Chelsea vs Bayern Prediction
We are expecting a high scoring affair in this match. Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is a must. Naturally, we just cannot see any different outcome for the game but this one. For you who like to play riskier, as always we have a suggestion. Try both teams to score in the second half, and it could pay off very well.
