'Bayern Outclassed Us...' - Chelsea Boss Lampard Admits

Frank Lampard admitted Chelsea's Champions League drubbing by Bayern Munich was 'sobering' and 'harsh lesson of reality' for his players. Admits
Their European hopes hang by a thread after they were 'outclassed' at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

The 3-0 last-16 loss is their heaviest-ever margin of defeat in a home European game.

Lampard admitted:

That's football at this level. 

The levels of Bayern Munich were fantastic... it was a harsh lesson of reality for the players.

'If you go for 90 minutes you have to show more than we showed... (the players) need to use this to a positive effect. It might not feel like that this evening but they need to understand the levels in the Champions League when you reach the knockout stages.'

You should never say the door is closed' ahead of the second leg in Germany.

He told BT: 

They outclassed us in pretty much every department, so it was quite sobering.

A three-minute brace from Serge Gnabry early in the second half saw Bayern wrestle control of the tie before Robert Lewandowski netted their third.

Chelsea's evening went from bad to worse after Marcos Alonso was sent off and Jorginho received a needless yellow card which rules him out of the return clash.
