Game Stats
Bayern Munich and Chelsea have met on two previous occasions in the Champions League. In the 2004/05 season, they met at the quarter-final stage, with the Blues winning 4-2 at the Stamford Bridge before losing 3-2 in Germany.

Three of Chelsea's six goals against Bayern have been scored by Frank Lampard, the others by Drogba (two) and Joe Cole.

Mario Gomez has scored 20 goals in his last 17 Champions League appearances.

Bayern have won four and lost four of their eight European Cup/Champions League finals.

Three of these eight finals were against English sides. The Germans won the first one versus Leeds (in 1974/75) before losing against Aston Villa (1981/82) and Manchester Utd (1998/99).

Chelsea have met German clubs 12 times in the Champion League: the Londoners have won six times, losing four times and sharing the points twice.

Bayern have played 38 games against English sides in European competition (incl. fairs): the Germans have won 14 of these, losing 11 and drawing 13.

Chelsea have won four of their last five CL games, drawing the last one 2-2 at Barcelona in the 2nd leg of the semi-finals.

English sides have won just one of their last eight European finals in all competitions (Manchester United vs Chelsea in 2007/08 Champions League).

This is the fourth time a team will play the final of the European Cup/Champions League in their own stadium after Real Madrid in 1956/57 (2-0 win against Fiorentina at the Bernabeu), Inter Milan in 1964/65 (1-0 win against Benfica at the San Siro) & Roma in 1983/84 (losing in a penalty shoot-out against Liverpool at the Olimpico).
