Chelsea will be looking to win the UEFA Champions League final for the first time in their history when they take on Bayern Munich on Saturday.

Sky Sports looks at the Blues' previous European finals.

CHELSEA 2 REAL MADRID 1
(CUP WINNERS' CUP FINAL, MAY 21, 1971)

Following their replay victory over Leeds United in the 1970 FA Cup final, Chelsea booked their place in a first European final with a 2-0 aggregate win over Manchester City in the semis. Their opponents were Spanish giants Real Madrid with the final being played at the Karaiskakis Stadium in Athens.

The first match, on May 19, ended in a 1-1 draw after Ignacio Zoco scored a last-minute equaliser to cancel out Peter Osgood's goal 10 minutes after the break. Two days later Chelsea exacted their revenge as first-half strikes from Osgood and John Dempsey set up a 2-1 victory.

CHELSEA 1 STUTTGART 0
(CUP WINNERS' CUP FINAL, MAY 13, 1998)

After overcoming a first-leg deficit to see off Italians Vicenza in the semi-finals, Chelsea finished the job at the Rasundastadion in Stockholm to win the trophy for a second time. Stuttgart enjoyed the better of the first half but the match swung decisively in the Blues' favour when manager Gianluca Vialli introduced Gianfranco Zola in the 69th minute.

Just 20 seconds after his arrival, the diminutive forward latched on to Dennis Wise's through ball to fire an unstoppable shot past Franz Wohlfahrt for the winner. Dan Petrescu was later sent off but the Londoners held on for the victory.

CHELSEA 1 MANCHESTER UNITED 1 - Man Utd win 6-5 on penalties
(CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL, MAY 21, 2008)

The night that John Terry will never forget. The Chelsea skipper was left in tears as he missed the spot-kick that would have won the cup for the Blues. The match had gone to penalties after Frank Lampard had equalised Cristiano Ronaldo's opener in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

Didier Drogba saw red for slapping Nemanja Vidic in extra-time before Chelsea raced in to a 4-3 lead on penalties after Ronaldo's miss from 12 yards. Terry stepped up to score the winner but he slipped and his shot shaved the outside of the post. Nani, Anderson and Ryan Giggs scored for the Red Devils and Nicolas Anelka missed the Blues' seventh spot-kick to hand United a dramatic victory.
