    We now know the pair for the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final. It appears football betting had a rough day as favorites lost to underdogs and also most people were expecting different teams to reach the final, but it's Chelsea versus Bayern Munich. Chelsea eliminated holders Barcelona in the semi-finals, 3–2 on aggregate as Bayern Munich edged Real Madrid 3–1 on penalties after a 3–3 aggregate score.

    This is the 57th season of the UEFA Champions League football tournament and the 20th since it was renamed from the European Champion Clubs' Cup. The match will be played on 19 May at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, home of Bayern Munich, one of the finalists. It will be the first time that a team will play at home during the final.

    I suppose very few people from our community will travel to Munich to see that match from the stands of Allianz Arena, but I know a lot of people will gamble online instead. The game alone will definitely be exciting enough, but watching it with a little money on the line will get more intense.
    Even if it's just a small amount, the game is even more intense when you know you can win something at the final whistle. A small wager can make a win for your team that much sweeter, and it can have you cheering for another team like it was your favorite.

    History favors Bayern as they are playing at home really, but in the end it's just one match and anything can happen. Mourinho has taken Chelsea to their only Champions League final before (2008) but lost in penalties from Manchested United of Cristiano Ronaldo. Bayern have won the tournament 4 times, last one was in 2001 and previous 3 were back in the 80s when the tournament was called European Cup.

    Which team do you think will raise the trophy this year?

  • Bayern are probably favourites due to Chelsea's suspensions. I think it will be very tight and may go to penalties.

  • I'll go for a Bayern win.

  • im hoping for bayern, but don't know i think chelsea really have a chance to win it. it is after all just 1 game. im just hoping for a good game now, been a while since we saw a very good CL final. the last one i remember being good in the last few years was United - Chelsea.

    Stam shows me a pics of his weddings(his wife signing papers), i comment on his wife:
    ME: she is lovely mate
    ME: well done ;)
    Stam: yeah, I signed her to my team lol
    Stam: she's a bargain, low wage :P

    and i think Chelsea are going to win as both teams have suspension problems and luiz and cahill will be back for the match but bayern have injury problems

  • As Chelsea fan I would want them to win it but I think Bayern will win it (for some time I wanted German team to win something).

  • As a Chelsea fan, I'm on another planet right now...
