CHELSEA FC

Chelsea return to the final looking to lift their third European trophy in the space of eight seasons

LONDON'S FIRST

Chelsea’s greatest victory was a triumph of grit and character. The Blues dug deep to get past Napoli and Barcelona before caretaker boss Roberto Di Matteo led them out for the 2012 UEFA Champions League final against Bayern München – in Munich. Didier Drogba’s late header secured extra time before Petr Čech saved an Arjen Robben spot kick to force penalties, making two more stops in the shoot-out. Four years after their final loss to Manchester United, Chelsea were London’s first European champions.
