Chelsea slipped to a 3-0 deficit within 27 minutes as a goal from Rafinha and a brace by Thomas Muller put Bayern Munich in command. A goal from Marcos Alonso just before halftime and a second-half goal from Michy Batshuayi saw Chelsea reduce the deficit but our performance in the first-half let us down.
Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti believes Chelsea’s defensive problems witnessed in the 3-2 loss to Bayern Munich won’t last long.
“Normally, Chelsea’s defensive organisation is really good but maybe today they had more problems and Conte was trying out different players,” Ancelotti said.
“I am sure Chelsea will have great defensive organisation in the coming season but it’s only the pre-season and we did not want to spend too much energy pressing, so we made the most of our counter-attacking chances.”
