Lahm: Champions League is all that's missing

By Football News



Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm believes UEFA Champions League glory would cap off the season perfectly for his side.

Bayern have wrapped up the Bundesliga in style this season, are in the final of the DFB Pokal and will be looking to win the Champions League when they take on Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on May 25.

Lahm, whose side have not won Europe's premier club competition since 2001, says the Champions League is all that is left to win for Bayern and believes his side have enough to win.

The German defender said: "Of course it's a huge aim to win an international title, as well as the titles we have won here - it's something extraordinary to have.

"It's a missing title that we want to win, there's no doubt about that. Still there is no guarantee, no matter how often you reach the final. But if you are there once you want to seal the victory, and I am very confident."

Bayern lost last year's final to Chelsea on penalties with the scores level at 1-1 after extra time but midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger says his team-mates are not making special provisions in case the same happens again.

Schweinsteiger said: "It doesn't make sense to speculate; if there's a penalty shoot-out then we have to deal with it.

"We will try to get each one in the net and Manuel Neuer will try to save as many as possible. The aim is to try to finish the match during the normal time - we have our plan and we want to play the way we want."
