Chelsea suffered a 3-0 defeat in the first leg of the 1/8 of the Champions League final against Germany’s reigning champion on Tuesday, due to two goals by Serge Gnabryt and a goal by Robert Lewandowski at Stamford Bridge.

The Londoners had some periods when they tried to pressure, but rarely tested goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Marcos Alonso was booked for red card after a VAR misconduct intervention.

Chelsea coach Lampard acknowledged that his team could learn a lot from that match and said they would have to use this victory in a positive way to understand the level they need to play in the Champions League.
