Chelsea face Bayern Munich in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening.

It's the first-leg of the last-16 tie, which will see the two sides meet in the Champions League for the first time since Chelsea's triumph back in 2012. 

Bayern will be looking for revenge, but Frank Lampard's side need a result to hold onto heading into the second-leg in Germany next month.

Here are the all-important statistics ahead of the European meeting:
