Match details

Chelsea's season was on the brink of collapsing, letting a 10-point gap slip to just one point over the other Champions League-chasing teams in the Premier League.

Frank Lampard's side bounced back brilliantly with a complete performance against fellow top-four chasers Tottenham, and brings them much-needed confidence as European action returns.

As for Bayern Munich, a brilliant run as seen them regain top spot in Bundesliga, although they still lock vulnerable - the German heavyweights needed a late goal to see off bottom of the league Paderborn 3-2.

Chelsea now meet Bayern in a repeat of the classic 2012 final - can we expect similar drama in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg?
