All-German UCL final

 

Bayern Munich is approaching its third UEFA Champions League final in four years with the calm of a team fully in control after a season of dominance. Winger Thomas Mueller (right) summed up the mood Friday. He says the showdown today ( 11 a.m., Fox 28) against Bundesliga rival Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium in London is just “a normal Champion League game. …We won’t let it drive us crazy.” Bayern is returning to the final after last year’s loss on penalty kicks to Chelsea in Munich. Bayern captain Philipp Lahm (left) says the “players are the right age now, the right character.” Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp is happy with one apperance. “If this is the only final in my life, this is the perfect place for it, and this is the perfect opponent,” he said. – AP
