first_imgTwo second-half goals in less than three minutes from Serge Gnabry and another from prolific Pole Robert Lewandowski earned Bayern Munich a thumping 3-0 victory at Chelsea in their Champions League last 16, first leg on Tuesday.The German champions, sharper and livelier than their hosts, piled on the pressure from the start of the match and the stats showed they enjoyed 63% possession.It was a bad night for Chelsea, whose home form under Frank Lampard has been suspect all season, and their misery was complete in the 83rd minute when wing back Marcos Alonso was sent off for violent conduct after he caught Lewandowski in the face with his arm. Topics : For former Arsenal forward Gnabry they were the fifth and sixth goals in London in the Champions League this season after he scored four in Bayern’s 7-2 demolition of Tottenham Hotspur in the group stages.The first against Chelsea in the 51st minute involved a one-two between Gnabry and Lewandowsi, who cut back from the edge of the area when Chelsea’s retreating defense expected him to shoot, leaving Gnabry with an easy finish from less than 10 meters.Chelsea, run ragged most of the evening, had barely got their breath back when Lewandowski and Gnabry exchanged passes halfway down the pitch before Gnabry raced away to score.Lewandowsi, clearly enjoying himself, got among the scorers in the 76th minute after a stirring run from Canadian full back Alphonso Davies.center_img The Germans had also wasted a series of chances in the first half.Thomas Mueller, one of three players who figured in Chelsea’s 2012 Champions League final victory over Bayern in Munich, went closest in the 35th minute when he thumped the bar with a header from another Lewandowski cross.Tuesday’s win proved a measure of revenge for that unlikely Chelsea victory and the Germans will feel fully confident of progressing when they welcome the London side for the second leg on March 18.last_img read more

first_imgRIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Reuters) – The chances of FIFA increasing the number of teams at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar from 32 to 48 is 50-50, the president of soccer’s governing body Gianni Infantino said yesterday.Infantino, who is in Brazil for a meeting of the South American Football Confederation, told delegates he was working to ensure the increase for the Qatar tournament, which would mean a guaranteed two extra places for South American sides.“We are working to see if we can get 48 teams in the 2022 World Cup because more participation means more development and more passion for everyone,” he said.“We’ll see by June whether it is possible or not. (It’s) 50-50. What is 100 percent is that the 2022 World Cup is going to be spectacular and a total success.”A final decision on the number of teams for the next finals will be taken at the FIFA Congress in Paris on June 5.FIFA chose to host the 2022 World Cup for 32 teams in Qatar, although Infantino has sounded out neighbours over their willingness to host some matches in an expanded tournament.FIFA has already agreed to increase the number of teams to 48 for the 2026 tournament being co-hosted by the United States, Canada and Mexico but is keen to expand quicker than planned.last_img read more
