Bayern Munich crushed Chelsea to move into Champions League last eight on Saturday, with 4-1 win against the Blues which they have qualified to the quarter final with 7-1 goal aggregate, having won the first leg netting three goals.

The Bavarians will be facing Barcelona as Lewandowski had taken the prize for player of the week over Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Bayern defender David Alaba said “We’re already excited, Barca are a quality side but we want to compete with them, we will go with confidence.”

Chelsea who conceded seven goals in a two-legged European tie for the first time, did not lack match practice having played in the FA Cup final last week. But half a dozen players were missing through injury, including Cesar Azpilicueta, Christian Pulisic and Pedro on suspension.

Chelsea Coach Frank Lampard said after the match,

“We had individual errors that gave them goals and at this level that will finish you off, it is a good exercise for us to go up against Bayern and Champions League experience, with a lot of our players having debut seasons.”

Meanwhile, Napoli was unlucky not to qualify after a hard fought game against Barcelona at Nou Camp, the team from Naples were beaten 3-1 with Lengie, Messi and Suarez scoring for the Barca while Insigne scored the only goal for Napoli.

Barcelona now qualify on goal aggregate of 4-2 to meet Bayern Munich in the quarter final.
