LILLE, France -- UEFA president Michel Platini is distinctly underwhelmed by Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund reaching the Champions League final, saying it does not herald a power shift toward Germany in European football.

Bayern dismantled Barcelona 7-0 for the biggest aggregate winning margin in a Champions League semifinal, and Dortmund thumped four goals past Real Madrid before holding on in the second leg to set up a final few expected at Wembley Stadium on May 25.

Still, that does not impress Platini much.

Speaking at a news conference about the 2016 European Championship to be held in France, he says "no team has won it two years in a row, so I won't draw any conclusions about the fact there are two German clubs in the final."
