For all it has done this season, Bayern Munich is one of the favorites to win the Champions League. This Saturday, the German giant receives Chelsea, in a return game for the round of 16. With a great advantage for the confrontation, it has everything to advance the stage and continue the trajectory towards the possible title.

Bayern is well on their way to the quarter-finals. In the first game against Chelsea, in London, he won 3-0 at Stamford Bridge. In this Saturday’s match, they may even lose by three goals difference that will still be classified. A score of 3-0 for Chelsea takes the dispute to overtime (or to penalties, if necessary). Any other result favors the German team.

The reality is that Bayern Munich have not slowed down since the arrival of coach Hansi Flick in November. Under the coach’s command, the team had 29 wins in 32 games (one draw and two losses). There were 100 goals scored and only 23 conceded. If they confirm the classification this Saturday, Bayern will already know who faces in the quarterfinals: the winner of the clash between Napoli and Barcelona.
