Winning the Champions League 2-0 against Bayern Munich have given them the honour to be the best in Europe. I have expected Inter Milan to win and rightfully so. Milito's double sealed the win but it was also the creativity and decisive strategies of Sneijder and Eto'o which made it possible. Sneijder and Eto'o are Real Madrid's and Barcelona's invaluable assets which are discarded with much regret. If both of them had stayed back in their respective clubs, Inter Milan may not be the club to be crowned champions of Europe today.

Bayern Munich fell at the final hurdle tonight as Inter won the Champions League final at the Santiago Bernabeu.

It was in fact a routine win to mark an extraordinary occasion, Diego Milito scoring twice for the Nerazzurri during a game in which they were rarely threatened.

Let's look at the numbers and see what they can tell us about Saturday night's events...

21 Number of shots Bayern attempted on the Inter goal...

11 ... and the number that Inter attempted in response.

55% Arjen Robben's pass completion rate

4187 The number of metres covered by Bastian Schweinsteiger

2/2 Goals/shots ratio for matchwinner Diego Milito of Inter

3 Number of yellow cards given out by referee Howard Webb in a game with 19 fouls

8 Number of Bayern shots blocked by an Inter player

15 Number of balls won by Martin Demichelis

5 The number of trophies Jose Mourinho has lifted in his two seasons at Internazionale
