2013 UEFA Champions League final betting previewThe Champions League final this Saturday, Bayern Munich the favorite, and Borussia Dortmund, two teams that are loved in Europe in the semifinals and confrontation which confirms the arrival of German football to the top of the continent.

In a recent interview with AFP, the UEFA president, Michel Platini, introduced the two protagonists of the final at Wembley, where the atmosphere should be great, as "good students" who "have no deficit, which have beautiful stadiums and also win. "

The semifinals won by Borussia against Real Madrid (4-1, 0-2) and the Bayern against Barcelona (4-0, 3-0) emerged as unique moment for German football club, to the point of imagining the beginning of a new era.

View defeated the Spanish giants to the German way of reinventing the full football with a lot of intense pressure and direct play, put a seductive light Bundesliga where the stadiums are full, there are many goals and finances are healthier than in elsewhere.


But now comes the final and despite being Germans can not say that the two teams get along.

In the tie between both registered three weeks ago in the Bundesliga (1-1), Bayern Munich Bavaria's rich and Borussia Dortmund in the Ruhr industry showed that no worship.

Matthias Sammer (Bayern sporting director and former player and former coach of Borussia) and Jürgen Klopp, Dortmund coach today, almost came to blows.

All season, the young Klopp (45 years) and his counterpart Munich Jupp Heynckes (68) were exchanged some darts and the transfer of star Mario Götze, Borussia Dortmund will happen at Bayern Munich, was poorly received in the Ruhr team .

The absence of Götze, with problems in his right thigh, seriously complicates things to Borussia, who seek the surprise and win a second Champions after won in 1997 in Munich.

The favorite is undoubtedly the Bayern 7-0 after two games in Barcelona. In addition, the Bavarian club has had a great season, a year after losing the Champions League final of 2012 in the Allianz Arena stadium on penalties against Chelsea.

Champion with 25 points ahead of Cup finalists Germany (June 1 against Stuttgart), Bayern Munich managed to overcome the disappointment of last year and has given great impression. The co-captain Bastian Schweinsteiger and Philipp Lahm is not far from the magnificent treble.

Borussia Dortmund has been almost never favorite this season in the Champions League, managing to leave the Group of Death (Real Madrid, Manchester City, Ajax Amsterdam) before deleting Malaga miraculously quarterfinals with two goals in the discounted leg.

Faced with Arjen Robben, Mario Mandzukic, Philipp Lahm and Franck Ribery, Jürgen Klopp's team definitely a bit fragile in defense, may also have talented players like Marco Reus, Ilkay Gundogan or Robert Lewandowski, who had their probation against Real Madrid, with four goals in the first leg.

But Bayern has lost two Champions League finals in three years (2010 and 2012) and the traumatic prospect of a third failure will be at the head of the players.
