Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack reckons Bayern Munich will reach the Champions League quarter-final.

Chelsea and Bayern Munich are set to face each other in the last-16 stage of the most Elite European club competition.

“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.”

The game between two giants will take place on Tuesday, February 25 at Stamford Bridge.
