Germans romp to victory at Stamford Bridge as Serge Gnabry brace and Robert Lewandowski strike punish Frank Lampard’s side in Champions League before Marcos Alonso sees red.
Serge Gnabry starred as Bayern Munich seized control of their Champions League last-16 tie against Chelsea with a resounding 3-0 win in the opening leg at Stamford Bridge.
After a dominant opening half in which Thomas Muller hit the crossbar, the Bundesliga leaders – facing Chelsea for the first time since losing to the Blues in the 2012 final – took the match away from their hosts in the space of three second-half minutes.
Gnabry, who scored four in a 7-2 rout over Tottenham in Bayern’s last trip to London, netted a brace when twice combining brilliantly with Robert Lewandowski, who got Bayern’s third with 14 minutes remaining.
With Bayern in the ascendency ahead of the return fixture on home soil, Chelsea’s misery was compounded when Marcos Alonso was sent off late on.DON'T MISS: Download Edujandon.com News app and get latest news updates directly to your phone!
