The Champions League Final in Bernabeu with Inter Milan and Bayern Munich both going to historic trebles. Inter goes to final after beat the champions of La Liga and the Premier League 2010, already winning the Serie A and Coppa Italia to come out a history as the first Italian treble. Bavarian knocked out the former champion of Premier League 2009 and Lyon to progress to the final after regained the Bundesliga title and stayed on course for a historic treble after they won the German Cup.
A victory in Madrid would claim Bayern to join Liverpool as five-time European champion. So third title would pull Inter even with Barcelona and Manchester Utd on the championship list.
They have already won Europe's most prestigious club trophy as a coach. Van Gaal victorious the 1995 title with Ajax while Mourinho captured the 2004 crown with Porto. One of them will join Ernst Happel and Ottmar Hitzfeld as the third coach to win the European Cup or Champions League title with two different clubs.
Italian clubs have won the European Cup/Champions League trophy 11 times and reached the final 25 times, Germans have 6 titles and 7 runners-up. This final result will impact the calculation of coefficients and rankings used for the qualification and seeding of teams for the next Champions Leauge.
