When it comes to European competition, Bayern Munich has become accustomed to assuming the role of the bridesmaid in recent years.
The Bavarians reached the Champions League final in 2010 but suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Inter Milan at the Bernabeu.
After a one-year absence from the title match of Europe's most prestigious club competition, Bayern looked like it would win last season's final. Thomas Muller struck in the 83rd minute at the Allianz Arena, Bayern's home ground, to give the club a 1-0 lead over Chelsea, but the Blues went on to equalize through Didier Drogba five minutes later and eventually win the title on penalties.
