Lewandowski inspired Bayern at Allianz Arena as Chelsea set horrible record
Frank Lampard and Chelsea’s season ends with two consercutive defeats. Prior to last night encounter against German Champions Bayern Munich, the Blues had already lost the FA Cup title to London rivals Arsenal.
Chelsea had a mountain to climb after losing 3-0 in the first leg tie of the Champions League against the Bavarians at Stamford Bridge. However, hopes of any come-back was shuttered after Bayern proved too strong for Lampard’s men.
In-form striker Robert Lewandowskiinspired the host to a comfortable victory at the Allianz Arena, scoring twice and providing a brace of an assists as Bayern Munich beat Chelsea 4-1 to qualify to the next stage on a 7-1 aggregate score line.
A result that leaves Chelsea out of the competition as well as setting an unwanted club record of most goals conceded in a Champions League campaign (15).
Bayern will now set up a mouthwatering Champions League quarter-final clash with Barcelona in Lisbon, after magical Messi propelled the Catalan side to an important victory over Napoli at the Camp Nou.
The winner of that game will come up against either Manchester City or Lyon on August 19 in the Semi-final.
