The towels are already down at Wembley because the Champions League final on May 25 is an all German affair. Borussia Dortmund face their native rivals Bayern Munich who are trying to bounce back from two defeats in the last three years, and in doing so complete a historic treble.
Plenty of punters did their dough on the Champions League this year with the well-fancied Manchester City failing to win any of their group games and generally being as useful in Europe as a 20 pence piece. Hotly-backed Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona all crashed out as well leaving punters ruing their faith in Nani’s creativity.
Luckily Paddy Power is here to ensure you don’t make any mistakes when it gets to the big final on May 25.
This weekend Bayern Munich travel to Borussia Dortmund in a Champions League final dress rehearsal on Saturday night. The game might not mean much in terms of the league, with Bayern Munich crowned champions weeks ago, but it could prove to be a handy betting pointer ahead of the final.
If you place an in-running bet of up to €10 (or £10 depending which side of the waters you reside) on the match, Paddy Power will match that as a free bet for you to use on the Champions League final.
It’s like using a practice go on an episode of the cube but instead of standing in a silly box throwing balls around you get to lie on your couch eating pizza and watching football. Plus you have the added bonus of not having to deal with Philip Scholfield and his slimy charm.
This is your opportunity to build your knowledge ahead of the final and get a free bet along the way. To help you out with your £10 in-running bet on Saturday, here are a few key facts from the last six head to head meetings.
- There have been 15 goals in the last six games, but only a couple of the matches had over 2.5 goals
- Robert Lewandowski has five goals in those six games
- There have been 16 yellow cards and no early baths. That’s an average of 2.6 cautions a game which is under 30 points on the card index
- Three penalties have been awarded in the six games, with two scored and one missed
- On three occasions the teams went in scoreless at the break with the average time of the first goal at 44 minutes
