Lahm confident Bayern can see off Chelsea

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm believes his side will prove too good for Chelsea when the teams meet in the Champions League final on Saturday, Sky Sports has reported.

Lahm will lead out Bayern in the club’s home stadium, the Allianz Arena, which was chosen as the site of the showpiece in 2009, having previously hosted a number of games during the 2006 World Cup, including the competition’s semi-final between Portugal and France and the first match of the tournament involving hosts Germany and Costa Rica.

Lahm scored a spectacular goal in that latter fixture and has said that when Bayern meet Chelsea, he expects a problem-free evening, but admitted to being wary of the Blues’ power. He added: “We know of [Drogba’s] physical strength and that it is going to be a physical game. But we are a strong team and I cannot see there being any problems.

The 28-year-old full-back has made nearly 450 appearances for Bayern since making his debut in 2002-03, and spent time on loan at Bayern’s Bundesliga rivals Stuttgart before fully establishing himself in Bayern’s ranks.
