Makaay: Bayern have a great chance to win the Champions League

Roy Makaay believes that Bayern Munich are well-placed to win the Champions League when they face Chelsea in Saturday's decider at the Allianz Arena.

The former Netherlands international acknowledged that Bayern have achieved something unique by reaching the final at their own stadium, and added that it will be a big advantage for Jupp Heynckes' side at the weekend.

"They have a great chance to win the title. Having home advantage is certainly an extra motivation," Makaay stated to the official Fifa website.

"Reaching the Champions League final on home soil is unbelievable, it never happens."

The Dutchman then looked back at his time at Bayern from 2003 until 2007, and confessed that he thoroughly enjoyed his spell with the Bavarians.

"Every player wants to play at the highest level and you can do that at Bayern. I had no hesitation in signing. I had many great years there, not only professionally, but personally too."

Saturday's encounter between Bayern and Chelsea kicks off at 20.45CET.
