Bright Arrey-Mbi makes history as one of two Chelsea youth products in Bayern Munich’s CL starting XI

Bayern Munich’s Champions League meeting with Atletico Madrid this evening has seen youngster Bright Arrey-Mbi make history for the club.

Ex-Blues talents shining

Hansi Flick’s men are currently locked in action with Atleti in the Spanish capital.

The German champions headed into proceedings having remarkably not only booked their spot in the Champions League’s knockout rounds with two games to spare, but also secured group winner status.

In turn, it came as little surprise to see Bayern’s squad heavily rotated for tonight’s clash.

In fact, none of Robert Lewandowski, Manuel Neuer or Leon Goretzka even made the trip to Spain on Monday.

The visitors’ starting XI at the Wanda Metropolitano still featured a host of recognisable names, including the likes of David Alaba and Leroy Sane.

Flick, though, also opted to hand some of Bayern’s young talents the chance to impress. And two such starlets came in the form of Jamal Musiala and Bright Arrey-Mbi.

Both made the move to the Allianz Arena in the summer of 2019, after carving their respective paths through the youth system of Premier League giants Chelsea.

Midfielder Musiala recently set history for Bayern, in becoming the youngest player to ever line out for the club in a Champions League fixture.

And, incredibly, just weeks later, Arrey-Mbi has this evening snagged the same record for himself, after being handed a starting berth versus Atletico:

Bayern behind

As things stand, Bayern currently trail in Madrid, shortly after the half-time whistle.

Joao Felix was the man on target with 26 minutes on the clock, carrying forth his stellar recent spell of form.
