Chelsea made it through the Champions League group stage this season, ranking 2nd in Group H, where they were in the company of the teams of Valencia, Ajax and Lille. The Londoners have been contradicting Stamford Bridge during this campaign, recording a lot of defeats for both the Championship and the European stage, where they lost to Valencia.
Bayern Munich had no problems passing the groups in the tournament. The Bavarians have won all 6 of their Group B matches, beating Tottenham, Olympiacos and Red Star 2 times, scoring 24 goals. Bayern are already visiting London earlier in the season, beating Tottenham 2: 7 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The two teams met in the 2012 Champions League final, when Chelsea won penalties at Bayern Allies Arena and grabbed the trophy. A year later, the Bavarians took a partial revenge after the two teams met in the final for the Super Cup of Europe, and then led by Pep Guardiola with players won after a penalty shootout.
