Former Bayern Munich and Chelsea star Michael Ballack predicts the winner between his former clubs.
Chelsea and Bayern Munich are set to battle it out in their upcoming Champions League match and Michael Ballack, who played for both clubs feels that it will be Bayern that progresses to the next round.
“Bayern are favourites, for many reasons,” Ballack said.
“Experience speaks strongly in their favour.
“Chelsea’s transfer ban has compelled them to put their faith in young players. Their manager is new and inexperienced in his job, and that is a big advantage for Bayern.
“The performance levels of Bayern’s players are another plus for them. They are more stable than they were last autumn.
“Chelsea have a young team, which has the potential to explode. They have mostly young players, a bit like Borussia Dortmund.”
Ballack makes some good points but this is tournament football and anything can happen and it is not as if either team are setting the world alight right now.
Bayern should win but underestimating Chelsea could be a huge mistake.
