Listen from 19.30CET for live 2013 UEFA Champions League final commentary.

Tune into UEFA.com from 19.30CET on Saturday for the best build-up and free full-match radio commentary of the 2013 UEFA Champions League final at Wembley Stadium – courtesy of Matchday Live.

Coach Jupp Heynckes is determined to make FC Bayern München champions of Europe before his third spell in charge ends this summer. We will hear from his two wing wizards in the run-up to kick-off as Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben discuss how past disappointments in the competition have spurred them on. Bayern's last UEFA Champions League triumph came in 2001 and the manager who oversaw that success, Ottmar Hitzfeld, gives his thoughts on the 2013 Wembley showcase.

Wembley Stadium, scene of Saturday's action

We have all Borussia Dortmund angles covered too. Coach Jürgen Klopp laughed earlier this season at the suggestion his side could go all the way in Europe's elite club tournament. Matchday Live has been finding out what the affable German thinks now. Dortmund midfielder Jakub Błaszczykowski can hardly believe it either: the Polish international tells us he never expected the young 2012 Bundesliga champions to reach London.

We are joined by European football expert Andy Brassell who will be offering his view of the all-Bundesliga encounter as well as taking your questions via Facebook, Twitter and email. From 20.45CET, commentator John Bradley will guide you through the 90 minutes at Wembley, plus extra time and penalties if needed, to see who will take Chelsea FC's continental crown.

After the full-time whistle we will have reaction from both camps, in addition to getting your opinion on what promises to be a brilliant final.
