Bayern Munich v Internazionale

  • This will be the fifth meeting between Internazionale and Bayern Munich in Europe - the Germans lead by two wins to one, one draw completes the record. 
  • The Nerazzurri are winless in their last five Champions League meetings against German oppositions (three draws and two defeats in the process). 
  • Bayern have faced Italian teams 18 times in the Champions League - the Bavarians have managed only five wins so far, losing eight times and sharing the points on five occasions.
  • With a goal against Bayern, Samuel Eto'o would become the first player in the Champions League era to find the back of the net in three different finals.
  • Bayern go into the game seeking a third Italian scalp in this season's competition, having already knocked-out Juventus and Fiorentina. 
  • Bayern, winners most recently in 2001 look to join Liverpool with five European Cup wins and so become the joint-third most successful club in the competition's history, behind Real Madrid and AC Milan.
  • Inter are hoping to secure their first European crown since they secured to back-to-back triumphs in 1964 and 1965. 
  • With four defeats en route to Madrid, Bayern Munich have lost more games than any finalist since AC Milan in 2002/03.
  • Bayern have won just two of their last nine matches against Real at the Bernabéu, while Inter have won only one in seven; losing on six occasions.
  • Bayern have been the most prolific side in the last 30 minutes of play this season in the Champions League, netting 14 goals in this period.
  • 66% of goals conceded by Inter in this campaign (six out of nine) have come in the first 30 minutes of play.
  • Ivica Olic is the leading goal-scorer amongst players taking part in the final, with seven goals (including the hat-trick netted in the semi-final against Lyon).
  • This will be the first ever meeting between the two managers, José Mourinho (winner in 2003/04 with Porto) and Louis van Gaal (winner in 1994-95 with Ajax).
  • The manager who wins this match will become the third to win the Champions League/European Cup with two different sides, after Ernst Happel (with Feyenoord in 1969/70 and Hamburg in 1982/83) and Ottmar Hitzfeld (with Borussia Dortmund in 1996/97 and Bayern Munich in 2000/01).
