One of the most exciting seasons in European football came to a climactic end on Saturday night when Chelsea beat Bayern Munich 4-3 on penalties after the Champions League final ended 1-1 in normal time.

A simple look at the statistics shows that this was a surprising outcome, to say the least: Bayern had 56 percent possession, 20 corner kicks and 43 shots on goal.

But Chelsea held on despite Bayern’s onslaughts on Petr Cech’s goal, and the last-gasp equalizer, as well as the winning penalty kick, was provided by none other than the Blues’ resident big-time striker, Didier Drogba.

As the European season comes to a close, Chelsea sealed a return to the biggest stage next season by winning the Champions League outright, despite finishing sixth in the English Premier League.

Here are six things we learned in the Champions League final in Munich’s Allianz Arena—and, as usual, feel free to have your say in the comments below.
