Bayern Munich will battle with Chelsea
in the UEFA Champions League
Round of 16 first-leg clash at the Stamford Bridge on February 25.
The Bavarians are looking to become the fourth club to win the Champions League trophy more than five times after Real Madrid, Liverpool FC and AC Milan.
They boast world-class attackers Robert Lewandowski, Philippe Coutinho and Thomas Muller, who have the ability to inspire Bayern to the title.
Hans-Dieter Flick, the Bayern manager, ensured that his side finished at the top of the Group B standings and he is now under pressure to guide the team to the quarter-finals.
Flick says his side should take it one game at a time as they prepare for their Bundesliga clash with Paderborn on Friday.

“If we think one step further right now, it would be a huge mistake,” Flick at a press conference.
“If it were anything otherwise” his players “would be in the wrong profession and club,” Flick added bluntly.
“The team has already known that when you’re in three competitions (Bundesliga, German Cup, and Champions League), every game stands alone.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea are looking to end their eight-year wait for a Champions League trophy having clinched their first title in 2012.
The Blues have some of the best youngsters in football world in Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Callum Hudson Odoi.
Their manager Frank Lampard guided the team to a second spot finish in Group H and he is now keen to lead Chelsea to an aggregate win over Bayern.
The last time Chelsea and Bayern clashed in a competitive match was on the 19th of May 2012.
The two teams played to a 1-1 draw in the Champions League final and Bayern won on penalties at the Allianz Arena.
