Champions League Update

Champions League Update

The upcoming UEFA Champions League Final features a mighty clash between the top two clubs in Germany, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich is favored to win over Borussia Dortmund.

FC Bayern players Anatolij Tymoschtschuk, Diego Contento and Mario Mandzukic waved to fans while sitting in a car on their way to the Marienplatz square to celebrate the team’s German league champion’s title after the German first division Bundesliga football match between Bayern Munich and FC Augsburg in Munich on May 11, 2013 in Munich, Germany.

Great footballers from both clubs including Mario Mandzukic, Bayern Munich, Robert Lewandowski, Borussia Dortmund, Arjen Robben, Bayern Munich, and Thomas Muller, Bayern Munich are fit for battle.

Bayern Munich’s Mario Mandzukic is reportedly the most likely player to score in the Champions League final.

Dortmund has won five of the last nine meetings between the clubs, but this season, Bayern broke Dortmund’s spell. Bayern faced Dortmund in four matches during the 2012-13 campaign and recorded two wins, two draws and no losses.

In the German Super Cup, Munich defeated Dortmund 2-1 with goals from Mario Mandzukic, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller each earning a tally on the score sheet.

If Bayern wins, it will cap a perfect season of four trophies from four competitions: German Super Cup, German Bundesliga, German Cup and UEFA Champions League.
