Dutch talent Ian Maatsen could make his Champions League debut on Saturday after being named on the bench for Chelsea’s clash with Bayern Munich.

Frank Lampard is facing a number of issues for the clash with Bayern Munich with Jorginho and Marcos Alonso suspended, while César Azpilicueta, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Christian Pulisic and Willian are all injured. To fill the gaps, Lampard decided to take Maatsen along to Munich.

The left-back, who can also play in midfield, switched PSV’s academy for Chelsea in 2018 and has so far featured in three cup matches. He can now dream of a possible Champions League debut.

Chelsea head to Munich with a 3-0 deficit and are almost certain to be heading out of the Champions League. Joshua Zirkzee could feature for Bayern.
