Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is hoping his side take risks after conceding they may be the underdogs against Bayern Munich.
The former Blues midfielder will be hoping his side give the German champions a good run for their money as his side prepares to face the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Phil Coutinho.
He said: “I don’t remember saying I want to take risks too much. I suppose it depends on the type of game.
“There’s a two-legged game against a very strong team here and in the Champions League, one thing is clear: your concentration and focus levels have to be absolutely top throughout both games.
“So I like us to take risks in attacking areas, to try to create and score goals. We’re created a lot this season. What was great at the weekend was the fact we won a game by taking chances with two great finishes.
“But in terms of our defensive mindset from back to front, we have to be really on it. Of course defensively there is no risk taking.”
