Chelsea is set to play a match in Miami in July at Sun Life Stadium against AC Milan, but before that happens the football club is fighting for a spot in next year's Champion's League and set to take on Bayern Munich in the 2012 UEFA Champion's League Final on Saturday afternoon. If Chelsea can best Bayern Munich, they'll take Tottenham's place as the fourth English team in next year's Champions League. If they lose, they're out unless they can claim the top spot in the EPL next season.
Bayern had to fight through the tournament, having a longer road than Chelsea, and look to cap it off with a win against a stronger club. Both teams are likely going to have to play with shuffled lineups however, as both teams are dealing with suspensions handed down in the semi-final round. Chelsea is missing Ramires, John Terry, Raul Meireles and Branislav Ivanovic while Bayern will be without Luiz Gustavo, Holger Badstuber and David Alaba, who are all suspended
Game Time: Saturday, May 19, 2012, 2:45 EDT
Location: Allianz Arena, Munich, Germany
