With each side having to make some adjustments thanks to suspensions, the lineups for this game have been the subject of much speculation. Now, the waiting is over; the lineups have been announced and can be found below.

Bayern Munich XI, Champions League Final 2012:

Both sides will presumably line up in a 4-2-3-1 shape; the most interesting development is the inclusion of 22-year-old Ryan Bertrand in the Chelsea lineup. A fullback by trade, Bertrand will be asked to help reign in whichever of Bayern's dangerous wingers ends up on the left hand side. Did we mention it's also Bertrand's first ever Champions League appearance? Not exactly a soft landing.
