who do you think will win the champions league, and why. Please acknowledge strength of schedule and expected fatigue.

i say bayern munich will win. The bundesliga takes off for 6 weeks, and during that time their players will rest. Most other leagues do not take a break, and players tend to get more injured and tired as time progresses without these breaks. Also, bayern have almost only established international players on their roster, and most of them come from teams that tend to play more team tactics (italy, germany, turkey), whereas teams like chelsea, real, and man u depend upon players with ind. skill with national teams that aren't as successful (england, holland, portugal)
