The Champions League is back, and everyone?s injured! Isn?t football fun" It?s Champions league time. Bayern Munich return to action after a month long break against Frank Lampard?s Chelsea in the Round of 16. Even though Hansi Flick?s men lead 3-0 from the first leg of the tie, the Bavarians will be wary of slip ups against a depleted Blues side that have nothing to lose.
Should things go to plan, Bayern Munich will face one of either Barcelona or Napoli in the UCL quarter finals in Portugal.
Team news

Bayern?s potential lineup is fairly predictable, with a few minor exceptions. Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller will start up top, with Serge Gnabry on the right wing. Kingsley Coman is sidelined by some thigh problems, so either Ivan Perisic or Philippe Coutinho will take his place.

Given kicker?s track record lately, that probably means Perisic will start instead. The Croatian was mediocre in his outing against Marseille in Bayern?s pre-UCL friendly, so let?s hope he?s tightened things up since then. A good performance here would make a strong case for making his stay permanent.
In midfield, Thiago Alcantara and Leon Goretzka are the only real options. Goretzka didn?t play against Chelsea in the first leg, so it will be interesting to see how he deals with Mateo Kovacic, who is a very simi...
