Chelsea face an uphill battle to qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals on their long-awaited return to European action on Saturday night, as they prepare to face Bayern Munich in the 2nd leg of their Champions League Last 16 tie at Allianz Arena.
Not only do the Blues have a 0-3 deficit to overturn, after their defeat in the 1st leg back in March, but they will also have to do it without a number of key players, as Cesar Azpilicueta, Christian Pulisic, Pedro, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Billy Gilmour, Jorginho (suspended) and Marcos Alonso (suspended) will all miss the game. There are also doubts over the fitness of N’Golo Kante, with Willian also unlikely to feature.

Bayern Munich vs Chelsea predicted by FIFA 20
To set up this simulation, we used kick-off mode on FIFA 20 but didn’t select a team to control; we then selected the teams and watched the match play out by itself, to give us a unique prediction.
The AI difficulty was set to legendary, with the lineup updated with the latest injuries and suspensions, to make sure it was as realistic as possible.
