The Bayern Munich-Chelsea match might not have been a great spectacle until the final 10 minutes of the regulation time but the tweets kept everyone amused. Truly, every action has a reaction; if only Newton would have been alive to see his physics laws applying so perfectly to football.

The match was a drab one as Bayern attacked but Chelsea managed to keep them away till the 83rd minute when finally Thomas Muller broke the deadlock.
