LONDON (AP) — Bayern Munich is approaching its third Champions League final in four years with the calm of a team fully in control after a season of dominance.

Winger Thomas Mueller summed up the mood Friday. He says the showdown Saturday against Bundesliga rival Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium is just "a normal Champion League game." Though the stakes are clear, Mueller says, "We won't let it drive us crazy."

Bayern is returning to the final after last year's loss on penalty kicks to Chelsea in Munich. Bayern captain Philipp Lahm says all might be aligned this time.

He says the "players are the right age now, the right character. There's nothing against us winning tomorrow."
