The final game of this Champions League came out to be as a surprise to many when Chelsea knocked out Barcelona in the Semi-Finals in a dramatic encounter that saw Fernando Torres scoring in the last few minutes sealing his club’s victory. The English club is now set to face Bayern Munich in their home turf in the Allianz Arena at Munich.
Probable Starting XI
Lahm, Tymoshchuk, Boateng, Contento
Robben, Muller, Ribery
Badstuber, Alaba and Gustavo will be unable to play in the Final and be replaced by Tymoshchuk and Diego Contento. The young sensation Thomas Muller is expected to be added in the starting sheet of Jupp Heynckes at the center of it all behind their target-man Mario Gomez.
Bosingwa, Cahill, David Luiz, Cole
Kalou, Lampard, Mata
The captain John Terry is out of this game following a nasty tackle over Alexis Sanchez in the Semi-Finals so his position will be filled by Cahill at the heart of their defense. Didier Drogba is fully fit and with no doubt is going to be playing in this game while Torres is more likely to be at the sidelines.
Bayern Munich are in search of their 5th Champions League title while Chelsea in need of their 1rst title but will be heading towards the homeland of the Germans where they still haven’t lost a game of the last 14 encounters.
The Germans are favorites on winning this match and even more considering all of their absences including John Terry on the other hand Bayern have all of their key players available to play with no signs of doubts for any of them. Roberto Di Matteo should be proud of making it this far and they would need another miracle to win this match.
