Bayern Munich Versatile Midfielder Joshua Kimmich is expecting a tight contest between his team and Chelsea, even if Chelsea have struggled as of late in Premier League play.
"They have a good mix between young and experienced players," Kimmich said. "They may not have been very consistent over the past few weeks, but a Champions League game is always something different - of course we want to win there.
Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer added: "We're playing against a Premier League team, it's going to be difficult. It is not easy to win games in England."
After facing Chelsea, Bayern will return to Bundesliga play to take on Hoffenheim before facing Schalke in the next round of the DFB-Pokal.
