The German side were the only club in the tournament to get maximum points from their six group games and will now take on the Blues in the next stage of the continental competition.
There is quite a lot of history between these two sides including one which the Bavarians would rather prefer forgetting.
In order to avoid forgetting and not seeing posts or tweets relating to their infamous penalty shoot-out defeat in the 2012 Champions League final on their own patch at the Allianz Arena, the Bavarians have taken some drastic steps on social media.
They’ve muted the words ’2012′ and ‘Drogba’ and being honest, it’s probably for the best and revealed it on their official twitter handle.
However, there was no way that Chelsea fans wouldn’t invade Twitter to brag about their famous and only Champions League win seven years ago.
For Bayern Munich, that final would be something they would want to erase from memory. For all of the match, they absolutely battered Chelsea, missed a penalty through former Chelsea player Arjen Robben and conceded a last minute header from Didier Drogba, who cemented his legendary status later by scoring the decisive penalty from 12 yards.
Not to forget that the Bavarians have been in insane form in the Champions League group stages. However, a match against Chelsea could never be taken for granted.
