Bayern Munich Vs. Chelsea, 2012 UEFA Champions League Final: Still 1-1 After First 15 Minutes of Extra Time

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

Despite the missed penalty, Bayern continued to attack Chelsea with a relentless fervor. After such a simple affair for the first 83 minutes, the last 20 minutes or so have been completely insane. Lucky for you, all you have to do is watch. I have to sit here and write frantically to describe all the events occurring in Munich .. .I wouldn't trade this spot for the world of course but you'll forgive me if my fingers hurt right now.

Chelsea have started to look better as Bayern tired and their dominance in possession lessened with Thomas Mueller and Franck Ribery both out of the match. Fernando Torres has been active for Chelsea, challenging the Bayern defense with speed and effective runs.

The first 15 minutes of extra time ended with Chelsea looking much better on the attack and appearing to have the fresher legs. Bayern's passing isn't as good as it once once and their touch is letting them down as well. Could be an interesting final 15 minutes of extra time at the Allianz Arena.
