The 2012 Champions League Final between Chelsea and Bayern Munich will be as much about who is not playing than who does take the field.
A total of seven players are suspended for the final in Munich. Six of these players are out for an accumulation of yellow cards.
Chelsea will be missing Branislav Ivanovic, Raul Meireles, Ramires and John Terry. Bayern will have to make do without David Alaba, Holger Badstuber and Luiz Gustavo.
On the surface, it appears Chelsea are the team hit hardest by the enforced absences. Terry, the club captain, Ivanovic, the club's best defender this season, and Ramires, the team's best player this year, have been vital to the Blues' success in Europe.
However, the show must go on. Both squads are not lacking for depth, and this is an opportunity for other players to step up and write their name into football folklore.
Here is a look at the players to look out for at the Allianz Arena on May 19.
