Antonio Rudiger has called on his teammates to give their absolute best in the upcoming match against Bayern Munich.

The cards look all stacked against Chelsea as they make preparations to take on Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Chelsea have a mountain to climb as they go into the match with a 3-0 deficit from the first leg at Stamford Bridge way back in February.

Having lost out to Arsenal in the FA Cup final, their team morale will not exactly be aloft either when they take to the pitch later tonight.

If those problems weren’t already enough, the Blues also will be missing some of their key players, namely Cesar Azpilicueta, Christian Pulisic, Pedro, and Willian, who are all out due to injuries.

Visualizing Chelsea overcome the hurdle will be hard for even the most optimistic fans, but Antonio Rudiger wants his side not to shy away from the seemingly impossible challenge.

Rudiger told in the pre-match press conference: “We lost the first game. But this is a situation where we have nothing to lose, the pressure is not on our side and that can be something good for us. We have to produce on the pitch and try the best we can.

“We all know that Bayern are a good team and they were before with [Jupp] Heynckes and [Pep] Guardiola.

“It will be a difficult night but we have to go out there and prove it to ourselves. We will have to give everything to turn it around.”
