The former Manchester United defender is eagerly anticipating Saturday's match and feels the German sides deserve their place in the final

Former England defender Gary Neville believes that Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have been the best teams in the Champions League this season and deserve their place in the final.

The 38-year-old has been impressed with the progress both sides have made in the competition and feels they have maintained their form throughout the competition.

"It’s not often the best two teams throughout the competition get to the final," the Manchester United legend told thefa.com.

"Sometimes teams will be stronger before Christmas, some after Christmas, but these two have been the best teams throughout the year.

"I've watched a lot of their games and they invigorate you every time. They are two special teams.

"I’ve got nothing but praise for both sides. There will be some great players on view, the quality of football will be there for all to see and the atmosphere will be sensational."

Neville won the Champions League with United in 1998-99 when they beat Bayern and in 2007-08 when they defeated Chelsea.
