Sky Sports journalist Charlie Nicholas has yet again predicted what he thinks would happen in Chelsea vs Bayern tonight!
Nicholas started off positively for the Blues while talking about the clash.
“Chelsea got a very good result against Tottenham; I did anticipate that if they started Olivier Giroud, they would get something.”
“What Frank Lampard is doing, playing the youngsters, is excellent. I see a style, which I don’t with some of the other teams that are rebuilding.”
However, he quickly gets into the reality of it.
“But they are still unpredictable. There’s a vulnerability to them.”
“Bayern came and battered Tottenham, annihilated them, but they do struggle at the back and they are being questioned with RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund running them close in the Bundesliga.”
“They are not as good as they have been in the past; I think they’ve regressed since Jupp Heynckes. They play narrower with Philippe Coutinho and Serge Gnabry. Gnabry has proven a lot of us wrong, as he was not cutting the mustard at Arsenal, but he has been excellent.”
“But I think they will prevail here; I don’t think Chelsea are at this standard yet.”
Nicholas predicts a 3-1 win for Bayern Munich!
