And that's all from me tonight. I've been Joe Doyle, and what a great night of action that was for all football fans. Well, all except Real Madrid fans. Chelsea v Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena on May 19. Champions League final, 2012.

It seems all the Chelsea fans are happy to be facing Bayern rather than Real Madrid, especially considering that the German team have some suspensions for the match.

Goal.com's betting expert, Jim Knight, has revealed that Bayern Munich are already favourites for the final in three weeks with Sportingbet:

"Unsurprisingly, Bayern are the favourites for victory given the final given that it will be played at Allianz Arena. While Chelsea do have several key players suspended, in a one off game that 7/4 could look pretty sizeable for the team that knocked out Barcelona and are on a high under Roberto Di Matteo and I'd imagine that would be the popular choice with punters."

Bayern Munich - 2/5
Chelsea - 7/4

And look at this: already we have a nice article for you to read about Mourinho missing out on a Chelsea reunion, due to this man's spot kick.

Here are the player ratings from tonight's game, with Manuel Neuer grabbing the top of the match prize.

Interesting shout from our very own George Ankers, who says he still can't look beyond Barcelona for the Champions League trophy. It's a dangerous call, I feel, but one that could be worth it's weight in gold. Or something like that.

And it means that the second-placed side in Germany will face the sixth-placed side in England...

It's difficult to follow that epic finale to the game, but here it goes. Bayern Munich will face Chelsea in the Allianz Arena, Munich, on May 19. The Blues will be without the suspended John Terry, Ramires, Raul Meireles and Branislav Ivanovic, while Bayern will be without Holger Badstuber and Luiz Gustavo.

You have to say as well, there was some fantastic goalkeeping in that shootout. Neuer's saves from Ronaldo, and in particular Kaka, were outstanding. Kroos and Lahm had fairly poor shots, but Sergio Ramos' was (almost literally) on another planet.

And of course, that means Bayern Munich will face Chelsea in the Champions League final at their own ground. A huge incentive for them, not that they need anymore.
