Bayern Munich's penalty shoot-out heroes Bastian Schweinsteiger and Manuel Neuer are both looking forward to taking on Chelsea on home soil in the Champions League final.

Schweinsteiger scored the decisive penalty which put out Real Madrid in the semi-finals on Wednesday night and Neuer saved spot-kicks from Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka at the Bernabeu. Ronaldo had earlier scored from the penalty spot and added a second before Arjen Robben's penalty levelled the tie on aggregate and took the game into extra time.

Schweinsteiger told the club website, www.fcb.de: "Ever since it was announced that the final would be in Munich, we all had only one target: to get there. Now we have one more match at home, and we want to win it. The only thing going through my head was putting the ball in the net."
