Breaking: Bayern Munich Trash Chelsea 4-1 To Secure Champion League Quarter Final Place

Bayern Munich sealed their place in the Champions League quarter-finals as they beat Chelsea 4-1 on the night and 7-1 on aggregate.

Robert Lewandowski gave Bayern the lead on the night as he scored from the penalty spot after being brought down by Blues goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

Ivan Perisic doubled the lead as he slotted home following a mistake from Mateo Kovacic.

Tammy Abraham gave Chelsea hope on the night as he scored after Callum Hudson-Odoi saw a goal ruled out by VAR with Abraham adjudged offside.

Corentin Tolisso made it three for Bayern on the night, with Chelsea again looking poor at the back, before Lewandowski doubled his tally with a fine header.

Bayern cruised through the final few moments with the Bundesliga side facing Barcelona in the last eight.

Here are five things you may have missed from tonight games...

Robert Lewandowski is the top scorer in this season’s Champions League – and he’s clearly a confident fella.

The Bayern forward slotted home the penalty that gave his side the advantage on the night, and he was so calm about it.

He wasn’t even looking at the ball as he stroked past Willy Caballero from 12 yards, just out of the keeper’s reach.

Ivan Perisic doubled Bayern’s lead on the night, making it 5-0 on aggregate, and he seemed embarrassed to do so.

The Croatian was left in plenty of space following a Blues error with Lewandowski simply finding his team-mate.

Perisic finished with aplomb though his celebrations were muted as he put his hand to his mouth in an embarrassed manner.

The four goals Bayern Munich scored tonight mean Chelsea have now conceded 22 times across all competitions since football resumed in June.

It means only relegated Norwich conceded more among Premier League teams in that time, with 25.

Lampard has strengthened his attack with Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner this summer, but maybe he now needs to look at his back-line.

With Lampard having been hindered by injuries and suspensions, youngsters Armando Borja, Henry Lawrence, Ian Maatsen, Lewis Bate and Dynel Simeu were all on the bench in Munich.

Maarten is the only one to have made his debut prior to tonight making his debut from the bench in the Blues’ 7-1 win over Grimsby Town in the Carabao Cup back in September.

Lampard didn’t put any of them on, but the experience of the trip could be huge in the future.
