Bayern Munich supremo Beckenbauer wants Barcelona in final

Bayern Munich president Franz Beckenbauer wants to face Barcelona in the Champions League final in Germany.

Bayern Munich president Franz Beckenbauer wants to face Barcelona in the Champions League final in Germany.

Real Madrid or APOEL Nicosia would then lie in wait for Bayern while Barca would have to see off either Benfica or Chelsea if Beckenbauer's ideal final were to come true, although the Kaiser believes it could happen.

"That is certainly what we all dream about, not just Bayern fans," he said. "Somehow I believe in this final, but there is still a long way to go.

"I am still dreaming about it. Real Madrid and Barcelona are currently the best sides in Europe and you have got to play against them at some point if you want to win the Champions League."
