Chelsea welcome Bayern Munich to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday for a massive Champions League cracker in the second round of the tournament.

Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez has returned to training ahead of the tie, having missed the last six league games due to a torn muscle bundle.

Martinez last featured for Bayern back in December, as he played in the center of defence in a 2-0 Bundesliga win over Wolfsburg.

The Spaniard has played 17 times in all competitions so far this season and has played in both the center back and defensive midfield position before his injury.

Bayern have moved to welcome back their star midfielder ahead of their visit to Stamford Bridge.

Alongside a video of the team undergoing their preparations, Bayern simply posted: “Welcome back @Javi8martinez” with a waving emoji.
