Josep Guardiola's arrival at Bayern Munich has a clear objective. Winning the Champions League will be the fifth priority for the Spanish coach. Sure, if the current coach Jupp Heynckes does not first.

The Bavarian club suffered a blow when they lost the final last year (2011-12) at home against Chelsea from the eleven steps. The Allianz Arena became mausoleum when the Blues lifted the 'Orejona'. The match had ended 1-1 on penalties but the English were more cold to prevail 4-3, consummating the fall of Munich.

Bayern has a rich history in tournaments European Cup. Heroic epic triumphs and defeats. His case is adorned with four titles, to be located as the fourth club with more titles on the continent, along with Barcelona and Ajax, only surpassed by Real Madrid (nine), Milan (7) and Liverpool (5).

The first title in team Teuton was editing in 1973-74 when they beat Atletico Madrid. It was an unprecedented Final, to be the only one that has been defined in two games. Both parties were held in the Heysel Stadium in Brussels. The tie to a goal after extra forced a second game two days later. That May 17, 1974 Bayern Munich wrote his name in the history of the tournament champions with a 4-0 win.

The German club had an enviable team. With Sepp Maier in goal, Gerd Müller in the attack and captain Franz Beckenbauer, Bayern won the Bicampeonato of Europe in 1974-75, beating Leeds United 2-0 in the final at the Parc des Princes in Paris .

Incorporating Karl-Heinz Rummenigge became even more powerful at Munich, who won the third championship by winning the 1975-76 edition after winning the final 1-0 at Saint-Etienne. That German team will be remembered as one of the greatest in the history of Europe.

The golden age of Bayern come to an end. It took 25 years for the Bavarian club rise again 'Orejona'. It was a long drought that ended Bayern style; suffering to the limit to define the title to Valencia on penalties 5-4, after finishing the match tied at a goal in the 2000-2001 edition held at the Giuseppe Meazza in Milan.

However, in the history of Bayern Munich are great tragedies that prevented the Germans totaled more titles. And there are five who have lost the finals, a couple of them dramatically.

On the night of May 26, 1999 will be recorded as the darkest page of the club. Mario Basler at 5 minutes opened the scoring for Bayern Munich, the rest of the game passed without change until the referee indicated three minutes of compensation. The victory was a matter of seconds, but Teddy Sheringham appeared to tie the game at 91. Two minutes later (93 ') also in a corner Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored the goal of the championship for Manchester United, left lying on the field to the Teutons, which remain unexplained what happened that day in Barcelona.

The other finals lost by the tragedy of the Allianz Arena and the Nou Camp, were in 1982 with Aston Villa for the minimal difference. In the 1986-87 edition of the Porto fell to 2-1 in Vienna and in 2009-2010 were outscored Inter Milan 2-0 in game held at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Now, Pep Guardiola must conquer the fifth Champions League for Bayern Munich and end the drought in more than a decade without the Bavarian club can lift again into the European Cup.
