Who will be in the 2013 Champions League Final?
As the Champions League semi-finals take place this week, we look ahead to the final and which sides could be lining up at Wembley next month.
Bayern Munich play Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund play Real Madrid in the first legs this week before the return legs in a week time. Munich and Dortmund will both need to take full advantage of having the first leg at home if they are to have any chance of progression and certainly Bayern Munich are more than capable of that.
Bayern have been sensational all season and their goal scoring ability should strike fear into Barcelona who’s backline is certainly not impregnable. The German’s have scored 16 goals in their last three matches and have already netted 14 times in this competition at home this season. Barcelona lost 2-0 in Milan and drew 2-2 at PSG so far in the knockout stages and have only won two of their last seven away games in the Champions League.
A decent advantage for Bayern Munich will give them something to hold onto in the second leg and it is hard to see them not scoring at the Nou Camp given that they have scored in every away match in the Champions League this season including three at Arsenal and two at Juventus.
Barcelona are favourites to progress to the final at 4/5 but Bayern Munich are the value at 5/4,especially as they should take an advantage to the Nou Camp and see that price shrink.
The second semi-final looks slightly more straight forward where Real Madrid should be too strong for Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund almost blew it against Malaga in the last round and it was the first time the pressure had shown and anything but a two or three goal advantage in the first leg would probably be overturned by Real back in Madrid.
Real Madrid should score in Dortmund and the away goals could be key to this tie. Expect Real Madrid to make it to the final with a bit in hand.
