Runaway Bundesliga winners, Hansi Flick's side are on a run of 17 wins and have the tournament's top scorer in Robert Lewandowski, whose 11 goals helped them to a ideal record in the group stage.
Lewandowski was the key man again for Bayern's second goal, holding up the ball in the 24th and turning to play in Ivan Perisic, who ran onto the pass from the right and hit the ball past Caballero.
No other player in Europe's top-five leagues has more goals contributions than Lewandowski (61) this season, with Lionel Messi (58), Kylian Mbappe (48), Ciro Immobile (47), Cristiano Ronaldo (44), and Jadon Sancho (40) all behind him.
"Of course Barcelona have the quality to be at their best in a game", he was quoted in Marca on Sunday. It is one of the most sought-after matches in the Champions League this year as two of the greatest players in the world, Messi and Lewandowski, will go head-to-head inside the pitch.
"I can see where I want us to go and I know we'll be back", the former Blues legend added.
1- Chelsea have only scored three goals in an away Champions League knockout match once previously, winning 3-1 at Liverpool in April 2009; Bayern have only conceded three times in three of their 43 home Champions League knockout games, though did so most recently in a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool in March 2019.
Barcelona took control of the game from the start and took the lead through Clement Lenglet in the 10th minute. Then it was Messi's showtime.
The Polish worldwide does deserve the accolade considering his numbers are borderline outlandish - 53 goals and 8 assists in just 44 appearances in all competitions.
Chelsea had a goal chalked off for offside in the 28th minute with VAR cancelling Callum Hudson-Odoi's superb strike. Napoli never had the chance to regain momentum despite Lorenzo Insigne's spot-kick in the second period. "Everyone has a chance in a single game, it's 50-50", Suaraz told Movistar.
Barcelona advanced 4-2 on aggregate five months after the Spanish side drew 1-1 in Naples before the pandemic brought European football to a halt. Good players, all.But not if you want to be challenging for domestic and European titles.Bayern eased off in the second half, passage through to the finals tournament in Lisbon next week assured - but even so they should still have extended their lead.Muller and Gnabry missed the target when well placeD as again Chelsea's defence was opened up easily, and sub Philippe Coutinho curled a dipping effort just over the bar.Their third of the night finally came on 75 minutes when Corentin Tolisso was left free in the area to turn past Cabellero.
