Ahead of the season’s resumption, Chelsea defeated Queens Park Rangers 7-1 in a friendly tie. A Chelsea fan had asked that the feat be repeated in our second leg clash against Bayern Munich, to which many Blues fans have already given hope.

Well, there might still be light at the end of the tunnel for Chelsea despite a 3-0 first leg loss.

UEFA have confirmed that the Champions League will resume this summer, with the remaining Round of 16 ties to be played on August 7-8.

The four remaining Round of 16 second-leg ties, including Chelsea’s away clash against Bayern Munich, will be played on August 7-8 and are set to take place either at the home team’s stadiums or in Portugal.

This might be good news for Chelsea, despite Bayern Munich’s current form. The Bavarians have been confirmed as German champions, and the Bundesliga is set to end this June. The Premier League will however start in June and run until July, meaning that Bayern will go over one month without competitive football.

However, UEFA have confirmed that the Blues won’t be able to register new players for the Champions League season, meaning that Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner will be unable to feature for the rest of the campaign.

Do you think Chelsea can still scale through against Bayern Munich?
