When we cast our eyes back to the beginning of the 2012/13 season most can recall putting Bayern Munich and Barcelona in their first few picks for Champions League success. These two European powerhouses had earn’t the right to be spoken of in such esteem. Their prowess both domestically and in European competition over the past decade speaks for itself. Barcelona has been led by the wizardry of Lionel Messi and the craftsmanship of both Iniesta and Hernandez, culminating in numerous domestic titles and cup victories along with success twice on Europe’s elite stage. Munich have class scattered all over the park.

Led beautifully by Bastian Schwiensteiger and with the polish of Ribery and Robben, the Bavarian giants have fallen at the last hurdle in two of the last four finals but this season have asserted a dominance rarely seen in Europe. Joining them in European elite have been their noisy neighbours from Dortmund. »
