SUSPENDED NEXT GAME IF BOOKED
  

BAYERN Joshua Kimmich & Thiago Alcántara      CHELSEA Kurt Zouma

Bayern haven’t played competitively in over a month & returned to action last Friday with a comfortable 1-0 friendly win over Olympique de Marseille. Despite a 3 goal cushion the Bundesliga champions won’t take Chelsea lightly as they look to gain match fitness & find their rhythm for Lisbon.

Benjamin Pavard’s ankle strain probably puts him out for the next few weeks & Kimmich will replace him at RB. For me, that’s a real shame as I’ve enjoyed watching Kimmich & Leon Goretzka develop into one of the best CM double pivot partnerships in the game. Thiago will slot into CM & his ability to set the tempo & dictate play will be invaluable in the later stages of the competition.

Frank Lampard takes his side to the Allianz Arena with a host of stars missing. Alonso & Jorginho are suspended. Pulisic, Azpillicueta & Pedro are out with injuries picked up in Saturday’s FA Cup Final loss to Arsenal. There are doubts over Willian, Loftus-Cheek & Kanté who are all returning from injury.

Chelsea’s season ends here & they go into this match with damage limitation the number one priority. Finishing 3rd was a massive achievement for Lampard in his first season, considering they lost their best player Eden Hazard, were unable to sign players & the amount of youngsters he integrated into the squad.

PREDICTION: Bayern’s overwhelming strength & experience secures their ticket to Lisbon & a quarterfinal against Napoli or Barcelona. Back them to win Halftime / Fulltime -114.

BACK BAYERN TO COMPLETE THE TREBLE

Hansi Flick served as assistant manager to Joachim Löw when Germany lifted the World Cup in 2014. Manual Neuer, Thomas Müller & Jérôme Boateng were there with him. This experience is invaluable & will benefit them in Lisbon where the final 8 teams battle it out in a mini tournament with one-leg knockout games.

PREDICTION: On August 23rd Bayern lift the trophy. Hansi Flick confirms his legendary status & does what Pep Guardiola couldn’t at the 1st attempt. Jump on Bayern now at +365 before the odds shorten.
