Chelsea were drawn against Bayern Munich in the Champions League last 16 earlier today, and it’s fair to say supporters of the west London club are fearing the worst.
Can Nathan Ake solve Chelsea's defensive issues?
The tie is, of course, a repeat of the 2012 final where Chelsea came out victors. However, this time around, they will not have the likes of Petr Cech and Ashley Cole at the back. Instead, it will be names such as Kepa and Kurt Zouma, which is not exactly filling the Stamford Bridge faithful with confidence — especially with Robert Lewandowski leading the Bayern charge.
This season, the Poland international has done his job, scoring just under 30 goals in all competitions despite it not even being January yet. The same cannot be said for Zouma, though, who has been part of a Chelsea team who have kept just three clean sheets in the Premier League all season.
For these Chelsea fans, it is a potential match-up that they are absolutely terrified of…
I can already see Lewandowski celebrating Bayern’s 5th of the night in front of the home crowd at the bridge after another defensive error by Zouma
