    I feel that people tend to dismiss Bayern as a world class club. They rank right up there with the likes of Real, Barca and Man United in terms of following and revenue.
    Having the final at home would be a great advantage. Meeting a not only physically but also mentally drained Real team will also come in handy in the 2nd leg.
    It’s hard to imagine Mourinho not having the team ready to go, especially at home. It won’t be easy, but I just don’t see Real losing. The question will be if penalties will be necessary or not.

    Let’s see, Chelsea are here due to some horrible finishing by Barca. That’s two matches in the row that Barca has lost due to some bad finishing. They had great looks verse Chelsea and Real. Barca’s defense was also exposed to their lack of speed.
    I just don’t see Drogba being able to get away with as much rolling around as he did in London either.

    Let’s face it Barca, will be highly motivated to defeat Real in the CL Final and cement its greatness further.
