Bayern Munich Vs. Chelsea, 2012 UEFA Champions League Final: Cech Saves Robben Penalty

Franck Ribery was taken down by Didier Drogba in the third minute of extra time in the box and the referee wasted no time in awarding a penalty. Easy call as the Chlesea striker kicked out at Ribery's feet and knocked down the French attacker.

As Ribery was taken off the pitch, Chelsea pleaded their case to no avail. Arjen Robben stepped up to the stop against Petr Cech which a chance to put Bayern back in the lead. He didn't. Robben's shot was low and to the far post with good pace, but Cech guessed perfectly and made the save.

Wow, what a chance for Bayern and, even worse, Ribery was unable to continue, replaced by Ivica Olic.
