This champion’s league season has seen extraordinary drama since the first round of qualifying last June and Saturday's game will show an exciting climax to the season.
The battle is expected to be tougher as Bayern have the chance to lift the trophy at their home stadium and Chelsea is going in search of their first European title.
It has been Roman Abramovich's dream to win the Champions League since he took control of the club in 2003 and he has been ruthless with the managers that have failed to bring success.
Roberto Di Matteo is the eighth boss to have worked with Abramovich, having replaced Andre Villas-Boas in early March at a time when Chelsea's campaign appeared to be heading towards a dismal conclusion.
The Blues were almost knocked out at the group stage by the time Di Matteo replaced Villas-Boas, but they straggled and won two of their greatest European games against Napoli and FC Barcelona to qualify for the finals
Chelsea are the champions of the FA cup after beating Liverpool and this makes them be sure of winning the match but they have reached the finals and lost before the last one being during the 2008 tie with Manchester United when Terry missed the opportunity to be a hero in the penalty shoot-out and they need to beat Bayern to make sure they will get back into the competition next season after finishing sixth in the Premier League this season.
