Chelsea put themselves in a tight corner as the Blues were beaten 3-0 by Bayern Munich in the first leg round of 16 clash at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea return to action this weekend in the Champions League, as the Blues will be away at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.

Popular pundit and former Manchester United striker, Michael Owen, has given his predictions for this game, and he insists that the scoreline from the first leg is too much for Chelsea to overturn.

Revealing his prediction for Saturday’s clash, Michael Owen said: “After a goalless first half at Stamford Bridge in the first leg back in February, Bayern Munich took total control of the tie with three second-half goals.

“One glimmer of hope for Chelsea is that Bayern have lost three of their last five Champions League home matches in the knock-out stages but surely a three-goal deficit is too much to overturn.

“Not only do Chelsea need to score at least three times, but they also need to stop the Munich goal machine, Robert Lewandowski, from adding to the 11 goals he’s already scored in this season’s Champions League competition.

“As much as I would love to see another British team progress into the quarter-finals, I can’t really make a case for it happening. I see Bayern bringing the Blues season to a disappointing end with a 2-0 win to the German champions.”

Owen predicted a 2-0 victory for the home side.
