Penalties – 3 – 4
FT Bayern Munich 1 – 1 Chelsea
Muller 83 Drogba 88
Bayern dominated the first half, but did not make it count squandering a hatful of chances, with Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller missing the mark far too often.
The pattern continued in the second.
When Thomas Muller finally made it count eight minutes before time, it looked like it was all over for Roberto di Matteo’s men. However, Drogba appeared out of nowhere two minutes before time to head in an equaliser and it was game on.
Chelsea got back in for the next five mnutes, which included three minutes of extra time, and when Drogba sent a free kick into the crowd the game finished 1-1 after normal time.
Three minutes into extra time though, a Drogba foul on Franck Ribery opened the way for a Arjen Robben penalty which was sensationally saved by Petr Cech.
From now onwards, it appeared that the omens were good for Chelsea and that Bayern would rue all those squandered chances, which included that miss by Robben, as well a great one early in the second half of extra time.
Bayern continued to attack, but they just couldn’t get the ball into the back of the net as the game went into a penalty shoot out with that man Drogba sealing the deal.
