BADSTUBER CONFIDENT THAT CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL LOSS TO CHELSEA WILL MOTIVATE BAYERN MUNICH


German Giant, Bayern Munich will begin their Champions League campaign against Valencia on Wednesday full of confidence after their best start to a season in 12 years, when they went on to win the European title against the Spanish team. 

Bayern's dramatic loss on penalties to Chelsea in the Champions League final May prompted the German giants to embark on a spending spree.

Bayern has won their first five competitive matches of the season with a club record 12 goals from its opening three Bundesliga games

It was a game that you never forget, it stays with you a lifetime,' Bayern defender Holger Badstuber said of the match against Chelsea. 'It was a heavy blow but we've coped with it. Every player took his own conclusions from it. It should spur us on and not hamper us. It's a new season now. We have new targets to aim for.'
 
Bayern last won the Champions League in 2001, when Mauricio Pellegrino, now Valencia coach, missed the decisive spot kick in the final to give the Germans their fourth title. 
 
Bayern's last - and only - loss at home to a Spanish team in the competition came 10 years ago, when Deportivo La Coruna recorded a 3-2 win. The Bavarian team has 13 wins to show from 19 home games with Spanish sides.
