Chelsea will be waking up today knowing that they face the near impossible in their Champions League round of 16 match against Bayern Munich tonight.
They are 3-0 from the first leg, and that game felt like years ago now with the lock down coming in between.
Chelsea will have to go out there with the ‘never say never’ attitude as they look to overturn a 3 goal deficit if they want to continue in the competition.
I believe that Lampard will send his players out to win, and to at least give it a shot. But we know how tough Bayern are as opponents.
This is the 23-man squad that Lampard took to Munich..

I think Lampard will line up strong, despite having to include a number of academy players in his squad due to injuries. The good news is that both N’Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are fit to start, and I believe both will as Lampard goes with an attacking line up.
Predicted line up –
(4-3-3): Caballero, James, Rudiger, Zouma, Emerson. Kante, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek. Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Giroud.
Score prediction – 2-2
Goalscorers – Giroud and Hudson-Odoi.
