Predicted Bayern Munich lineup vs Chelsea (from Bild newspaper) & Thomas Muller to equal Lahm record

Here is a look at the predicted FC Bayern lineup to take on Chelsea in the Champions League tonight, courtesy well known German newspaper Bild. With two German teams bowing out of the Europa League, Bayern will be keen to ensure there is more than one Bundesliga representative in the last eight of the Champions League- they will join Leipzig in the QF’s here if they see off Chelsea.

Thomas Muller could equal Philipp Lahm’s record for most Champions League appearances by a German player if he features against the Blues.

Wolfsburg & Eintracht Frankfurt out of Europa League, Leverkusen only Bundesliga side left in competition

The Bundesliga was reduced to a single representative in the Europa League in the form of Bayer Leverkusen after Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt both bowed out of the competition at the Round of 16 stage.

Frankfurt were always up against it having lost the first leg 3:0 to Swiss side Basel, and were beaten 1:0 as they were soundly beaten 4:0 on aggregate.

Wolfsburg had slender hopes having lost the first leg 1:2 at home, and the reverse tie in Ukraine was goalless till virtually the last minute before Shakhtar unleashed a triple whammy, winning 3:0 and progressing 5:1 on aggregate.

Leverkusen had one foot in the quarters with a 3:1 first leg victory over Steven Gerrard’s Rangers, and confirmed their spot with a 1:0 triumph in the second leg. However Bayer’s reward for this is a tough tie against Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan.

They may have been relegated from the Bundesliga, but Fortuna Dusseldorf have come up with a rather unique away shirt (released today August 4, 2020) that we dare say is perhaps better than some of the other top flight releases we’ve seen so far.

The camouflage design is actually a representation of the Dusseldorf district outline. The location co-ordinates of the Paul-Janes stadion is also located inside the neck. The words “Mit Ecken und Kanten“ can also be seen as part of the neck detailing.

The word Dusseldorf is present on the back, written in the custom “Fortuna Sans” font.
