Bayern Munich Vs. Chelsea, 2012 UEFA Champions League Final: Game Heads to Penalties

Update: Chelsea defeat Bayern Munich 4-3 on penalties, win UEFA Champions League final

Bayern and Chelsea couldn't settle things in the first 90 minutes. Despite a penalty chance for the Germans, they still couldn't settle things after 30 minutes of extra time. Now it's time for penalties. Gulp.

I personally hate penalties, whether I'm a fan or a neutral. They're cruel and evil and do nothing more than lead to blood pressure problems...but that's just me. No doubt hearts are beating like crazy, some fans likely cannot watch, the Champions League will be decided by one of the most exciting, excruciating and brutal creations that mankind has ever come up with. The only thing worse is of course the Thunderdome.

Penalty kicks will be updated in this post throughout, and we'll follow that up with a full match report. Stay tuned...
