Chelsea win Champions League on penalties

Chelsea stunned Bayern Munich to win the Champions League for the first time after a penalty shoot-out in the Allianz Arena following a tension-soaked final that ended 1-1 after extra time.

Bayern, playing in their home stadium, laid siege to Chelsea’s goal for most of the game and appeared to have won it when Thomas Mueller finally made the breakthrough with an 83rd minute header past Petr Cech.

Chelsea lost to Manchester United in the 2008 final on penalties but erased that painful memory as they held their nerve to become London’s first European champions.

The match itself was marked by drama rather than excellence.
