It is now official. Bayern Munich will meet Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals after crushing Chelsea 7-1 in aggregate.
Bayern quickly made it 5-0 on aggregate when Lewandowski scored from the penalty spot within 25 minutes.
Chelsea pulled a goal back through Tammy Abraham after a rare mistake by keeper Manuel Neuer.
Substitute Corentin Tolisso made it 6-1 on aggregate when he volleyed home unmarked inside the six-yard area. Poland forward Lewandowski, who now has 53 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions this season, headed the fourth to finish the match with two goals and two assists.
There were few positives for a Chelsea side without seven first-team regulars because of injury or suspension. This is the first time Chelsea has conceded seven goals in a two-legged European tie.
Their margin of defeat on aggregate is the second-worst by an English club in the Champions League, behind only Arsenal’s eight-goal aggregate loss also against Bayern Munich in 2016-17 (2-10).
After winning the Bundesliga title, Bayern Munich are eyeing a domestic and European treble. They are only two wins away from gracing the Champions League Final on 23rd August.
They face a tough test against Barcelona who pulled a 4-2 aggregate win over Napoli at Nou Camp.
“We will prepare for Barcelona like any other opponent. We want to show our strengths again, be 100% focused and bring our qualities into the game.
“We’re not focusing on Lionel Messi, we need to be aware of every player.”, Bayern Munich boss has noted.
Bayern Munich have won their first eight Champions League matches this season (all six group stage games as well as both legs v Chelsea).
