Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller wants a taste of revenge when his treble-winning side play Europa League winners Chelsea in Prague for the Super Cup next week.
Muller scored the 82nd minute header that all but secured the Champions League trophy for Bayern in their own stadium before their hearts were sunk as Didier Drogba led Chelsea to a dramatic victory.
The German international was substituted after his goal and had to watch from the sidelines as Chelsea stole the silverware and although success has come since then, Muller claims he can never forget that terrible night in Munich.
"We do have a small score to settle, even if it does not completely wipe away the memory of losing the Champions League final," he told the official Bayern website.
Over a year on and Bayern are the current Champions of Europe, German Cup holders and Bundesliga champions. After Chelsea's group stage exit in last season's Champions League, the Blues went on to win Europe's second competition - the Europa League.
The tie not only gives the German side a chance to beat Chelsea in a cup final. but it also pits two enemies together in Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho once again to add more spice to a game many consider a friendly.
Chelsea lost last season's Super Cup final to Atletico Madrid after Radamel Falcao scored three to demolish the Blues, so Mourinho's side will want another trophy to add to the cabinet in West London and there is no better scalp than that of Bayern Munich.
Muller appreciates the slight prestige involved in reaching this final and will want to win.
"You don't always reach the Super Cup final so we'll do everything we can to win the trophy," he added.
