Champions League Final: Predict the Winner

By Peter Alegi | May 18th, 2012 13 Comments

Tomorrow’s Champions League final between Chelsea and Bayern Munich seems promising, even for neutrals like me. The Bavarians are at home, but Chelsea are currently in better form. In an intriguing twist, Chelsea have four players suspended, Bayern three, “which means any assessment of what might happen is going to be dotted with ifs and maybes” writes Jonathan Wilson in his column.

So let’s play every armchair manager’s favorite fun game. My prediction: Chelsea 2, Bayern 1, possibly after extra time. Goalscorers: Drogba, Mata, and Robben.

What’s your prediction?

Without a doubt, “blue is the colour”!

2-1 Bayern. Those Chelsea louts won’t win in Munich.
Goals from Robben and Ribery v. Drogba.
Also, John Terry is one of the worst human beings on the planet.

Don’t get your hopes up too high for a good game. Bayern on penalties after 0:0 tie.

Uninspired game, Bayern 2-0.


May 18th, 2012 | 8:34 am    

Chelsea on penalties, after 2:2 tie

Bayern surely! Bayern hopefully!

I also have to predict a dreary game. The Capello rumors get to Chelsea, Bayern win 1-0 in regular time with a goal from Robben.

I think Bayern will prevail.

As painful as it is for someone who’s usually in the “Anyone But Bayern” camp, the home team wins 2-1, Ribery, Gomez, Drogba.

Bayern 7 Chelsea 2

Seriously, boring 1:0 victory for the Bavarians

With all due respect to Drogba and Essien,I hope Bayern win. The sight of Terry lifting the trophy with big ears would traumatise me.I actually prefer Chelsea to Bayern but Terry and Ashley Cole are my least favourite footballers. Oh,and then there will also be the endless chesthumping from the English media about “how the EPL has once again proved that its the best league in the world,” blah blah blah. Hosting the Olympics is enough glory for the English this year. Chelsea must lose to Bayern & their national team get knocked out very quickly in the Euro, otherwise we won’t hear the last of it.

Bayern dominate the wings and win 2-0. Gomez scores twice.

Bayern Munchen should win, but I have deep fear of what seems like some Magic antidote on the Chelsea campaign. They have largely played poor quality football, but somehow, they win matches against superior opposition! And, in my opinion, they do not deserve this luck at all!
