Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has admitted it will be almost impossible for The Blues to knock out German champion, Bayern Munich in the round of 16 tie.

The blues were dominated all through the game, but their resilient was not broken unitll the second half where former Arsenal striker Serge Gnabry produced another masterpiece performance in London.

The German scored twice while Lewandowski added the third, putting the German side firmly in control of the round of 16 tie. Lewandowski’s second-half goal was his 39th in 33 appearances this season.

Giroud also acknowledged the fact that the blues will be without anchorman Jorginho and left-back Marcos Alonso through suspension, making qualification to the next round more difficult.

The world cup winner stated that the team have nothing to lose when they travel to Germany in March, he admitted it will be difficult but it is not impossible. He finally stated that, if the German could score three at Stamford Bridge, the Blues can also go to Allianz Arena and score three and try not to concede.
