The Champions League title is the biggest prize in professional soccer in Europe with all of the top teams from the various domestic leagues around Europe battling it out in a year long tournament for the right to call themselves the best team in Europe.
The funny thing is that neither of Chelsea nor Bayern Munich performed up to expectations in their domestic league, with Chelsea finishing 5th in the Premier League and Bayern finishing second to Borussia Dortmund in both the Bundesliga standings and their domestic cup finals (losing 5-2). In fact Chelsea must win this match in order to even participate in next season Champions League because only the top 4 teams from the EPL can participate. Sometimes when teams have success in Europe they lose focus on their domestic leagues, which seems to have been the case with each of these squads.
