Bayern Munich and Chelsea go head to head on Saturday in Munich.

A difficult match to predict, but who do you think will lift the trophy?
 
I think Munich will win.

Chelsea will be missing players and have a weak defence anyway. It only needs one of Robben and Ribery to have a good game and Bayern will create numerous chances.

Chelsea have had a great great run in this competition and can take the FA Cup with them, but this is a step too far for them.

Yeah like munich will have their first 11 on the field.there defence will be more weaker then us,they will be forced to play a defensive mid or full back at the center back position and i can see first drogba and then torres absolutely crushing him.
 
if we had Ramires it would be total humiliation for them lucky he isn't playing
 
Bayern Munich.

I think they have the better team on paper and on the field. Not to mention it's a home match for crying out loud!

Chelsea have no chance, it'll be a miracle.
 
On paper you would say it would be a comfortable win for Bayern Munich BUT as we know the game is not on paper, who the hell expected Chelsea to be in the final? So maybe they are just destined to win the trophy

Bayern do have the better team and if I was a betting man I would put money on them BUT I would not dismiss Chelsea so easily, anything can happen in the final (yes I know that is cliched BUT it is really valid in this case)

At this moment I am undecided as to who I will be supporting
 
LOL people never learn their lesson.Nobody gave us a chance against napoli,everyone said that barca will slaughter chelsea hell people even said that we will lose to benfica but sorry to disappoint you all because this is our year!!!!!!

are you going to decide after the last game of season to see where newcastle ended up?
 
I think Bayern are massive favourites, but i got a sneaky feeling chelsea will win the game.
 
LOL at the Chelsea fans here! Hate? Just because someone thinks that Bayern will win, doesnt mean that they hate chelsea
 
People should remember what happened when Chelsea had the odds stacked against them last time
 
Got to favour Chelsea after Bayern Munich's capitulation tonight. They couldn't defend, they couldn't attack, they couldn't pass, they couldn't tackle, they couldn't finish, they couldn't cross. They were up against a good team, but they didn't look like they had any belief whatsoever.
 
Surprising how Bayern are struggling domestically when pound for pound they have comfortably the best squad in Germany in my view.

Anyway, despite three defeats along the way I still fancy them to beat Chelsea especially as they're at home.

However, the luck Chelsea have been having in the UCL it does sometime seem it's written in the stars.

The question is will Chelsea park the bus again or will they have a right good go on this occasion?
 
Interesting news about Bayern.

Not a match that can possibly be missed. Anything could happen.
 
Tomorrow is the ucl final but there is no buzz around here!!!!!??????Too many barca and madrid fanboys !!!
 
Insha'Allah Chelsea win. Arguably we've been the best team in Europe from 2005 till 2008. We lost to Liverpool on a ghost goal, next time on pens, 2008 a slip and in 2009 we were robbed by a corrupt ref against barca who scored with their only shot on goal. Now in 2012 against all the odds we've made it to the final, and I hope legends like Drogba get the trophy they deserve. So much rides on this. UCL football next season is critical and will certainly help us in our pursuit of players.

We're in a pakpassion forum lol. I am getting hyped on my Chelsea forum, if you really want to get buzzing go and troll some Bayern fans on their forums too ;)

Ok then? Lets look at the logistics. Try and convince me Chelsea did not deserve to win in at least one of these years. In the years when we wrecked all in the EPL winning by 12 points and 8 points a ghost goal and penalty shoot out sent us out. 2008 was by a few inches. Between those few years we were a big force, the english teams were the feared. 2009 was when Barca came along and they changed everything - even in that year, Chelsea were disgracefully robbed by Overbo - don't get me started on that. Luck has eluded us for many years, and it would be apt if we win in a year when our squad is at its weakest.

zzzzz.

If you were the best you would have won.

Chelsea had 1 shot on target in 180 minutes versus Liverpool in 05. Who cares about the ghost goal, when you play that badly you deserve to lose. Liverpool in fact were the better team at the Bridge, with Baros denied by a great save and Carragher having a blatant penalty appeal turned down (in the days where nobody got penalties at the Bridge). And then Liverpool defended valiantly at Anfield. Chelsea deserved to go out.

Then in the semi a few years later, Liverpool again deserved to go through.

Man Utd beat Chelsea in the final because they were the better team and took better penalties.

Robbed by the ref is standard issue excuse, there have been many better teams than Chelsea in Europe since 2008.

It's pretentious that you stay stubborn to a stance without any logical substance. I said we were arguably one of the best. But their is no argument about us being one of the best teams at the time - 2 semi-finals and a final shows that. I remember the 2005 game in the last minute we missed a nearly open goal and a stunning Dudek save denyed Lamps a goal (All of which happened in the 2nd leg) And by the fallacious logic of not deserving victory, does that mean Barca didn't deserve it even more so in 2009 when they only had one shot in the 2nd leg. Go and watch the 2009 game , 4 pens their should've been. Their has been unanimity amongst myself and Barca fans on that robbery (not that they care). Since 2008 I have no doubt their have been better teams that us I didn't even once say that, but to try and put our losses in such blunt and supposedly 'deserved' terms is quite ignorant. I understand that these unlucky episodes technically means nothing since we didn't lift the trophy at the end, but that's why I'm hoping that - in a year when we are at a lowpoint as a team - we finally lift this trophy. It would be quite a story and Insha'Allah this time a fairytale ending will be scripted.

Nah, while I agree that Chelsea weren't the best team, I disagree with that statement. The best team doesn't always win the CL.

Touche, we may not of been the best yes, but consistency is proportional to it for sure.If we didn't slip or a ghost of a goal never occurred we'd be talking a whole different ball game. But I'm hoping this lack of lack finally turns a corner tomorrow. Insha'Allah we'll lift it I'm so hyped now. Skysports 2 1hr30mins champions league preview on live at the allianz arena.
 
Don't really know who to support - Hate Spurs and don't want them to get CL football but then no London club has ever won it and I'd like it to stay that way. In a bit of a dilemma.

After all the Spurs buzz, and arry genius talk it would be brilliant to knock them out. Out of all clubs, Chelsea or Arsenal - a London club - knocking them out would've been the worst case scenarios for them. Imagine the reaction. Priceless, simply priceless. And the London club ever winning it is inevitably going to come to an end. Chelsea winning will take the gloss out of City's victory too - as a MUFC fan I know that can't be a bad thing for you, not to mention the rest of us :afridi
