David Cameron and Angela Merkel will take a break from discussing wars and fiscal crises at a G8 summit on Saturday to watch the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea.

The British and German leaders will take use of a theater at President Barack Obama's Camp David retreat to watch the keenly awaited football final, a US official confirmed.

Bayern host Chelsea at Munich's Allianz Arena in the showcase final with the Blues bidding to win their first European title.

Although Cameron supports Aston Villa -- who languished near the bottom of the English Premier League -- fierce rivalry is expected.

At a G8 summit in Canada two years ago the leaders watched Germany thump England 4-1 in a World Cup match in South Africa.
