Chelsea v Ajax I’m not sure anyone expected just the one goal in this reverse leg a fortnight ago in Amsterdam, I know I certainly didn’t. Chelsea were deserving victors in that game and they limited an Ajax side who scored 3 in each of their opening two game to just 0.45 expected goals. Frank…

The Bavarians are sitting in an ominous position but seasoned German football fans have reason to be hopeful; this current Bayern team are far from the well-oiled machine of previous incarnations.
