UCL: Lewandowski inspires ruthless Bayern past Chelsea 

UCL: Lewandowski inspires ruthless Bayern past Chelsea 

Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich are through to the quarterfinal of the UEFA Champions League, UCL, after a ruthless display against Chelsea inspired by Robert Lewandowski. 

Lewandowski was the best player on the pitch after having a hand in all of Bayern’s goals in the 4-1 defeat of Chelsea in their round of 16 second leg tie on Saturday.

The Polish international, who went into the game as the competition’s top scorer on 12 goals, scored two goals and assisted another two in a one-sided encounter that ended with the Bavarians sealing an astonishing 7-1 aggregate win. 

31-year-old Lewandowski was too hot to handle for the Chelsea defence as he started and finished the scoring in the night for the Germans, while setting up ton of his teammates, Ivan Perisic and Corentin Tolisso, to complete the rout. 

Tammy Abraham netted Chelsea’s consolation goal just before the break but it failed to inspire any unlikely comeback from Frank Lampard’s severely battered Blues. 

Bayern booked their ticket to the quarter-final with the result, setting up a date with Barcelona who saw off SSC Napoli at the Nou Camp in the other match played tonight. 

For Lampard and Chelsea, the goals conceded tonight take their tally to 15 for the season, the most goals conceded in a single champions league campaign by the club, an unenviable exit for the Blues and their fans. 

Barcelona join Bayern in the quarterfinal 

Spanish Giants, Barcelona will have their hands full in the quarterfinal after booking their place with a 3-1 win over Napoli at the Camp Nou. 

Goals from Clement Lenglet, Lionel Messi and Luiz Suarez earned the LaLiga team a 4-2 aggregate win over their counterpart from the Serie A.

Barca will face a very difficult Bayern side with a place in the last four up for grabs.
