Chelsea vs Bayern Munich − Where and when to watch tonight’s Champions League clash
We have a repeat of the 2012 Champions League final to look forward to this evening, with Chelsea and Bayern Munich set to face off in this competition for the first time in eight years. The German giants, of course, were beaten on their own turf on that occasion, thanks to a heroic performance from Didier Drogba, who first grabbed a late equaliser to send the tie to extra time, then scored the winning penalty when the game went all the way to a shootout. We can’t promise penalties tonight, but here’s hoping for just as much drama. Here’s how to tune in to Chelsea vs Bayern Munich tonight, no matter where you are.

Chelsea vs Bayern Munich − Match preview
Chelsea scraped through their group by the skin of their teeth, their controversial home draw with Ajax, who in one fell swoop had both centre-backs sent off and a penalty awarded against them, ultimately proving decisive.
Bayern Munich, by contrast, dominated their group. They recorded six wins out of six, and they currently lead the Champions League charts for goals scored − with Robert Lewandowksi the competition’s joint-leading scorer.
Fellow forward Serge Gnabry had a field day the last time he played in London, bagging four against Tottenham back in October. Will he put another rival to his former club to the sword tonight?
