Bayern is riding a 17-game winning streak, which helped it secure the Bundesliga (German League) and DFB-Pokal (German Cup) titles following the 2019-20 season restart.
Chelsea finished fourth in the Premier League and runner-up in the FA Cup, but the exertions cost manager Frank Lampard the services of Christian Pulisic and Cesar Azpilicueta due to injury. N’Golo Kante and Willian both might be healthy enough to play but probably won’t, as they only recently have recovered from injury.
