Champions League Final Preview


Champions League Final

As we come to an end of another exciting season, the main event on Saturday night (before the boxing) is the Champions League final at the home of football, Wembley Stadium. Two German sides mixing it up on English soil will be a must see event. I have been backing Dortmund for a while so I have to stick with them.

Borussia Dortmund

 

Key man Gotze is out, but he is on his way to Munich in the summer so how ‘up for it’ would be a real issue. They do have other real quality players that can shine at Wembley. Robert Lewandowski is a brilliant striker who is gaining attention form the giants of European football. This will probably be his last game in the yellow of Dortmund and he will want to go out on a high. Gundogan, Bender and Kehl as a midfield unit are one of the best. I feel the real star on the night could be Reus, he will take Gotze role and this youngster I feel will rise to the occasion.

Bayern Munich

After the heartbreak of last year bottling it on their home turf against Chelsea, it's no surprise they have reached the final again. They simple had too. There a quality team who blitzed Barcelona in sensational style in the semi finals and have some of the world’s best players. I do though think that last season still haunts them. If Dortmund takes the lead Munich could get nervous. These rivals drew twice in the league so even though Bayern won the title by miles, one-on-one its very close. I think players like Robben has the ability to shine on this stage but also can let you down when you need him most.

Iv backed Dortmund all the way so I will stick with them.
