Bayern defeat was a 'harsh lesson', admits Chelsea's Frank Lampard - MW

Frank Lampard admits that Chelsea is far from defying the elite after all of Bayern Munich, but has still secured a place in the last eight Champions League games with a brutal 3-0 victory at Stamford Bridge.

Bayern destroyed Chelsea in the first leg of the knockout stages, two goals from Serge Gnabry and one from Robert Lewandowski which brought a resounding victory to the German champions, and Lampard admitted the team was inexperienced. On March 18, he couldn't have played for anything other than pride when he went to the Allianz Arena for the return leg.
It's a difficult lesson, a reality for players at the level we want to reach, '' said the Chelsea manager. This is Champions League football and we have fought in the knockout stages, past its final stages, for a number of years and that is the reality of it.

They have to use that as a positive and may not feel the same tonight, but what they need to do is understand the Champions League levels at this point. Many players out there today haven't played it - maybe the Europa League, a big difference - or played it a few years ago, and certainly not at Chelsea, where we arrived. Semi-finals, finals and win it.

However, Lampard refused to blame Chelsea for insulting them for not signing a player last month. He said it was okay to look at something other than the reality of where we were, he said.

We are currently fighting to be in the top four this year because we want to improve in the summer. We also have to go to Munich and play with great pride for a few weeks. Today is just a clear program that there is a lot of work to do and I feel it when I take the work.
Marcos Alonso received a late red card after VAR found Lewandowski's elbow on the field and Jorginho will also be suspended from the second leg after accepting a reservation for dissent, while Tammy Abraham appears to have adjusted his hamstrings. after the final whistle.

Jorginho's yellow card, we shouldn't be talking to the referee when [he] is on top of another yellow, said Drake Lampard. The second time I saw the Alonso incident, I didn't want to comment too much on it. Maybe it's human nature when you beat 3-0 in a game.
