Bayern Munich and Chelsea will head to The Allianz Arena in Munich to battle it out for European’s most coveted Cup, the UEFA Champions League ,on Saturday, May 19th. Both teams are plagued by suspensions and Chelsea more notably will be without the services of their captain John Terry, who was sent off against Barcelona in the semis.
The Blues will also have to do without Branislav Ivanovic, Ramires and Raul Meireles, while the hosts ,who are gunning for a fifth European Cup, will miss Holger Badstuber, David Alaba and Luis Gustavo. Their replacements however are experienced campaigners, and tomorrow’s final will be nothing short of an even encounter.
For Roberto Di Matteo, the return of Gary Cahill and David Luiz will be a huge boost to his already weakened defence line and he will be looking to improve his team’s performance in Germany this season , having lost 1-2 at Bayer Leverkusen in November .They will be looking to add to the FA Cup win back home in England, while Jupp Heynckes side will look to emulate Liverpool for a fifth Champions League title.
Match kick-off will be 12:15 am IST.
