Chelsea secured a morale-boosting 2-1 win over London rivals Tottenham on Saturday, but they need to improve if they are to better Bayern here. While they are unbeaten in five in the Champions League, the Blues have won only four of their last 12 league outings, which doesn’t bode well here.
Conversely, Bayern have failed to win just one of their last 11 competitive matches, with the only game they failed to win a 0-0 draw with title rivals RB Leipzig. They’ll hope to earn a similar result to the one they enjoyed on their last visit to London, where they beat Tottenham 7-2.
Bayern should secure a first leg advantage in what promises to be an entertaining encounter in west London.
Chelsea– Andreas Christiensen played the full 90 minutes of Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday with a face mask and should be fine to start here.

Tammy Abraham returned as a second half substitute against Chelsea but his stand-in, Olivier Giroud, scored and will hope to continue in the side on Tuesday.
Bayern Munich tried and failed to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi last January but a hamstring injury may keep the winger out here. Willian will hope to return to the side here.
