I will take the underdog Dortmund..

The bumblee bees always play the top boys well..
In the past 2 years its been mostly draws and wins for the lads in yellow and black vs Germany's super power..

Plus bayern are chokers in big games..
They have already lost 2 CL finals in recent years to inter and a suspect Chelsea team..
Robben rarely does well on the big stage..
Blowing a golden chance to knock out Spain in the World Cup..


If it was a 2 leg series I would take Munich..
But in a winner takes all scenario..
I've got lewandowski all the way!!!!!!

Dortmund wins 3-2 in 30 mins extra time..
The pole scores the hat trick..

MTC


I'm not sure classifying Bayern as chockers is fair. If anything, they play better in big match-ups. In the 2010 final, Inter was simply the better team. Ribery was suspended for the final and Bayern was simply outmatched.

In 2012 Robben chocked. Not Bayern. Just Robben.

Speaking of chocking, Dortmund plays horribly when they lack the experience of having played in a match or competion before.

This was evident last season, when Dortmund, coming off a Bundesliga title and on the way to the domestic double were absolutely humiliated in the Champions League. Last place in a group that included Marseille and Olympiacos. One win in six matches. This didn???t happen because Dortmund wasn???t good enough to win, it was because they were inexperienced. They weren???t used to the higher stakes and they were punished for their lack of experience. I think a Champions League final at Wembley of all places, will do the same to them.

Bayern has picked up valuable experience. They knocked Dortmund out of the German Cup this year and they've been use their experience to propel their game to levels they haven't reached before.

And without Goetze in the midfield due to injury....


Before this year..
Dortmund had beaten bayern 5 straight times..
So it's obvious that the bumble bees do not fear the mighty Munich..

I personally think experience is over rated in sports..
For every example you give me of experience counting, eg Spain's recent dynasty..
I can give you an example of an inexperienced team coming out of the blue eg Greece 2004 or Denmark 1992, winning the euro..

While bayerns impressive attacking style allowed them to destroy a slew of formidable foes..
Such as barca, juventus and arsenal in London..
Here is the dirty secret..
Dortmund wants Munich to attack..
It will open up the counter attack for lewandowski..
And if bayern decides not to attack.. (Which I don't think they will)..
Then they will be a fish out of water..

Another important factor?
The Dortmund players are playing for big fat payday contracts..
While the bayern super stars already have the super model wives, Ferraris and summer homes in south beach..

Both teams had hard roads to the finals..
Dortmund came out of the group of death..
Bayern had to beat the Spanish and Italian champs..

By Sunday lewandowski will have a statue of him at wembley!


Who do you propose is going to get the ball to Lewandowski? Goetze is a massive loss to Dortmund's midfield. Not only are you depriving Dortmund of their primary playmaker, but you're forcing Gundogan to play in a more advanced position. Forcing him out of his natural role deeper on the pitch is going to make him less effective as well. I think for Dortmund to really have a chance in this match you???re going to need Reus to have a man of the match performance.

Bayern conceded a combined zero goals in 4 matches against Juve and Barca, the Italian and Spanish champions, respectively. No way Dortmund gets 3 goals on Bayern, particularly on the counter attack. If this was a home game for Dortmund and Goetze was healthy, it would be different. Hummels is recovering from a knock as well and if he loses even a step in defense, Dortmund's goal is going to get lit up.

Also, the only Bayern player who actually dates/is married to a model is Schweinsteiger. You can paint Bayern has playboy millionaires, but that image wouldn't hold up in reality. Besides, the Dortmund players are already going to get paid, whether they stay with Dortmund or leave the club. Reaching the final was enough

2 votes so far!!
But I have a feeling more will come..

May 25, 2013  10:48 AM ET

No way.

May 25, 2013  10:49 AM ET

Dortmund is more concerned about getting big transfers for their players than winning trophies.

May 25, 2013  01:10 PM ET

I'm helping a friend move today..
So it looks like doing my 3rd will be a stretch..

Best of luck to you bayern..
You guys definitely deserve to win it more..
But futbol can be a cruel sport..

May 25, 2013  03:54 PM ET

It could easily be 2-2 right now

May 25, 2013  07:23 PM ET

Congrats bayern!
Go get hammered!
