Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and his young side were dealt another harsh lesson by Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League this evening as they lost the second leg of their last-16 tie 4-1 on the night and 7-1 on aggregate.
The Blues trailed the German giants 3-0 from the first leg and the return match was every bit as difficult to watch as Chelsea crumbled again.
The home side went 1-0 up after just 10 minutes when Willy Caballero fouled Robert Lewandowski in the area and the Polish international netted from the spot.
Bayern Munich doubled their lead inside 25 minutes when Lewandowski turned provider for Ivan Perisic to fire the ball home.
Callum Hudson-Odoi then looked to have pulled a goal back for Lampard’s men but his effort was ruled out for offside by VAR before Tammy Abraham did score a legitimate goal on the stroke of half-time as he scrambled the ball in from close range.
The home side remained in complete control in the second half, although they were guilty of some wayward finishing.
Hans-Dieter Flick’s side finally grabbed a third goal 14 minutes from time when Lewandowski again provided an assist, this time for Corentin Tolisso to bundle the ball home.
Lewandowski capped off a wonderful night for him personally when he headed home a fourth Bayern goal in the 83rd minute.
Bayern Munich will now go on to face FC Barcelona in the last eight while Chelsea will be hoping to progress further in the competition in 2020/2021.
