4/24/2012 12:32:59 PM -
The road to Munich which started seven months ago with 32 teams, is now just 90 minutes away for the last 4 to have made it this far.
In the first leg of the semifinal played a week ago, Chelsea managed to beat Barcelona 1-0 at the Stamford Bridge, while Real Madrid lost 1-2 to Bayern Munich at the Alliance Arena.
For defending champions Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Bayern Munich, the Uefa Champions League final with its many opportunities for either side is just 90 minutes away.
The last 90minutes to Munich are exclusively live on SuperSport and in High Definition.
For the holders Barcelona, Munich offers the opportunity of becoming the first side to successfully defend Europe's premier club football competition since AC Milan won back-to-back titles in 1988/89 and 1989/90.
For Bayern, Munich offers the opportunity of a dream final in front of 69 000 of their own supporters spurring them on to victory by singing Stern des SÃ¼dens (Star of the South), the club's anthem. The final will be played at the Allianz Arena, Bayern's home ground.
For Chelsea, Munich could offer players like John Terry, Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and Petr Cech who are now in the twilight of their careers, the opportunity to finally bury the ghosts of 2008, when the trophy slipped through their grasps in the penalty shootout against Manchester United.
For Real Madrid, Munich offers them another shot at the elusive record stretching 10th title of Europe's most prized club football competition.
Barcelona Face Chelsea tonight, while Real Madrid clash with Bayern tomorrow
