Chelsea go into tomorrow's Champions League Final knowing that for many of them, this could be their last chance to lift the trophy. Over 300 million people worldwide will be watching the Blues take on Bayern Munich in what is likely to break records as the most watched sporting event of all time. And with the likes of Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and John Terry all in their thirties, this could be the last opportunity they have to win the trophy that chairman Roman Abramovich craves.
The Allianz Arena is where the gladiatorial contest will take place between Chelsea, who finished sixth in the Premier League his year, and Bayern Munich, who are looking to win the competition for the fifth time.
Chelsea go into the match already at a disadvantage, as players Ramires, John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic are all missing through suspension. Bayern Munich are also playing at home, providing an even greater challenge for the blues. But after their heroics at the semi-finals, where they somehow managed to beat reigning champions Barcelona, you cannot write off this Chelsea team of performing one last act of magic.
Regardless of the result, history will be made tomorrow. If Bayern win, it will be the first time a team has won the competition on their own turf. If Chelsea prevail it will be their maiden Champions League, and the first time a London side has won the illustrious prize.
