Chelsea had to fight back from 3-0 down against Bayern Munich to end the game 3-2, after Chelsea started the game so poorly.

Within 30 minutes of the first-half, Chelsea were already down to 3-0, with Rafinha scoring the opener just six minutes after kick-off and Thomas Muller adding a brace to worsen matters.

However, Marcos Alonso pulled one back for Chelsea before the break and Michy Batshuayi continued his scoring form with yet another goal on the 85th minute to make the scores 3-2.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has hailed the team’s fighting spirit to try and save the game after going 3-0 down to a rampart Bayern.

He said: “For sure three goals in only half hour, it is not simple, it is a difficult situation. But despite this I think that the players dedication was very good, because we didn’t give up and the commitment was always top and we tried to fight, despite hard work in these days,” Conte added.

“Our start wasn’t good, but the dedication (was) and the players tried to show me great will to change the result and we are during the pre-season. We are working very hard, Bayern are a top, top club. I don’t discover this.

“I think Bayern are one of the top club in the world and regularly they have won the league in their country and the Champions League usually arrived. If they are not good then it’s only quarter-final in the Champions League. But I think we must take the positives from this game and to continue to work, to improve.”
