Serge Gnabry’s double and a Robert Lewandowski strike inspired German champions Bayern Munich to a 3-0 win over Chelsea on Tuesday night, February 25 in a Champions League last 16 tie at Stamford Bridge.
The 24-year-old (Gnabry) scored two goals in the space of four minutes before the Polish striker got Bayern’s third in the late 15 minutes from full time.
Bayern boasted 63 per cent of ball possession, dominating play, reminiscent of the 7-2 display at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this season.
Chelsea’s left-back Marcos Alonso saw red in the 83rd minute for violent conduct.
The win gives Hansi Flick’s side a huge advantage in the second in Germany on March 10, with Chelsea now required to win by a margin of four goals or force a 3-3 draw.
