As the guy on the Dolmio ads would say: “Today’s the day.”
Yes, after nearly 10 months of football, the Champions League of
09/10 will come to a close in Madrid this evening as Bayern Munich and
Inter Milan go head-to-head in what
promises to be hopefully will be a pulsating encounter.
Back in July of last year, my beloved Bohs were cruelly knocked out of the competition and I maintain that if a certain defender hadn’t made a mess of one particular clearance, I would be in Madrid today along with thousands of Bohs fans. It wasn’t to be though but perhaps next season will be kinder to us.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, Bayern v Inter.
As always, the bookies have hundreds of markets on the Champions League final and I have scoured through them all (well a few of them anyway) to find you our ‘Champions League Top Tip’. You may have noticed our ‘World Cup Top Tip’ posts in recent days. Well today I decided to switch our attentions to tonight’s match in the Spanish capital.
If Bayern are to win tonight, the man in picture, Arjen Robben will no doubt need to be on his game. The former Chelsea winger has had a magnificent season for the German giants and we reckon he is value @ 8/1 with Bet365 to score 2 or more goals tonight. With the final being played in Real Madrid’s stunning Bernabeu stadium, Robben will be looking to impress on a stage where many, including myself, feel he wasn’t given enough time on.
So that’s our top tip. Feel free to tell us the bets you will be or have already placed on tonight’s game by leaving a comment below.
