Champions League: Chelsea set two heavy records after exit

Chelsea on Saturday night made two Champions League records after their exit from the competition at the hands of Bayern Munich.

Bayern defeated Chelsea 4-1 in Germany to qualify for the last eight of the Champions on 7-1 aggregate, having won Lampard’s men 2-0 in the first leg at Stamford Bridge in February.

Robert Lewandowski, Ivan Perisic and Corentin Tolisso all scored for Bayern.

Tammy Abraham netted a goal for Frank Lampard’s side.

However, according to OptaJoe, Chelsea’s 7-1 defeat on aggregate to Bayern was the second-heaviest inflicted on an English team in Champions League history, behind only Arsenal’s 10-2 aggregate defeat in the last-16 in 2016-2017 campaign, also against Bayern Munich.

Also, Chelsea conceded 79 goals in all competitions in the 2019/2020 season, an average of 1.44 per game, their worst ratio in a season since the 1990/1991 campaign (1.64 goals per game conceded).
