The German side's victory against Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund in London alleviates some of the disappointment of the 2012 showpiece, when Bayern went down on penalties to Chelsea FC at their own Fußball Arena München. Only AC Milan had previously been able to shrug off the setback of a final defeat to claim the trophy 12 months later. The Rossoneri succumbed to Olympique de Marseille in the first final of the UEFA Champions League era in 1993, yet famously beat FC Barcelona 4-0 the next season. Indeed, Milan were finalists once more in 1995 but lost out to AFC Ajax.

Jupp Heynckes said FC Bayern München's Wembley win was reward for an "outstanding" season at home and abroad, while Jürgen Klopp's sadness was soon replaced by pride.
Jupp Heynckes, Bayern coach
"What we've achieved so far this season – because it's not over yet, we still have the German Cup final next weekend – has been outstanding. There's never been a Bundesliga team that's consistently played at such a high level, winning the championship by 25 points, breaking almost all records."

Jürgen Klopp, Dortmund coach
"I have to say congratulations to Bayern, of course – congratulations to Jupp Heynckes, I really think he deserves this trophy. It was a close match and at one point it was so open we could have won it. Our defensive work was incredibly good and that helped us to keep the game open. There were a few things we might have done differently, but in the end Bayern scored twice and us once. I've seen all the Champions League finals recently and not one of them finished without the result being in doubt at some point."

Arjen Robben, Bayern forward
"Unbelievable, [I'm] so happy. I think it's difficult to describe all the feelings [I] have at the moment, but I am very proud, proud to be part of this team. And yes, to finally win this Champions League, that's a dream come true. You can't describe it – so many emotions go through your head, especially because you know what it is like to lose. I think you can enjoy it even more when you win the title.This is the perfect season, and we can finish it off next week. If we win the cup final, then [we] win the treble, and I think that's our target. But I think for everybody tonight was the most important one, and I think now we can celebrate."
Congrats to Bayern,they had indeed a perfect season till now,beating barcelona with 7-0,winning Bundesliga by 25 points ahead rivals BVB,and now beeing crowned CL winners,they have only left the Pokal cup final,set to be played next weekend against Stuttgart.
PS: I only had a big problem in this great final match of the competition and that is why wasn't Dante sent off when he committed the penalty?!
