Bayern Munich seem to have been handed an unfair advantage against Chelsea, and that fact is reflected in the 2012 Champions League Final betting odds. With the Germans at home, by the pure inequitable chance of advance arrangements, Chelsea have to win this away game as outsiders (played on Saturday May 19, 2012).
Bayern are in the Final on merit, and have fire-power with Robben, Ribery and particularly the goal-scoring machine Mario Gomez. It is a shame the cards’ rules are not waived for the Final but with Terry and Ivanovic both missing due to suspension it will make Chelsea’s uphill struggle even more of a test.
The positives for Chelsea are that they have never been in better form than they are right now. They also did the real hard work in the previous round against Messi and his men, defying the tips and punditry of the non-believers. If Barcelona could not get past the boys in Blue then why should Bayern? After all Barcelona would have been favourite to prevail had they progressed.
