Bayern Munich Vs. Chelsea, 2012 UEFA Champions League Final: Thomas Muller Puts Bayern in the Lead

At last Bayern Munch found their goal!!

A fantastic cross from Bastian Schweinsteiger found Thomas Muller at the far post and after so many wasted chances, he was not going to miss this one. Ashley Cole, who had just seen yellow for sweeping Muller's legs out from under him, didn't see the midfielder sneaking in behind him at the fair post and watched as the cross sailed over his head and was finished by Muller.

Cech made a desperate play at the ball, but he had no chance to stop the header as it bounced hard and past him off the inside of the crossbar and in to the net. Bayern's fans went nuts, the players celebrated with a dogpile and most important, they've got the goal and the lead.

Mario Gomez deserves credit for trying up two Chelsea defenders and allowing Muller to find the open space.
