Joshua Kimmich, the Bayern right-back, is looking forward to the final after helping his side overcome French side Olympique Lyonnais in the semi-final clash on August 19.
 
"The bottom line is, it was deserved, but especially at the beginning it could have turned out differently," Kimmich said.
 
"We are happy and proud that we are in the final. It wasn't so much of a celebration in the dressing room.
 
"But more that focus is on the final. That is what characterises us at the moment. We will regenerate tomorrow and then we'll go again."
 
This will be Bayern's 11th appearance in the final of the most prestigious club competition having finished as runners-up five times.

The Bavarians also clinched the 2013 UEFA Super Cup after defeating England's Chelsea having clinched the Champions League title at the end of the 2012/13 campaign.
