Our resident betting expert is backing the former Blues winger to score at the Allianz Arena in what should be an open Champions League final between two sides missing key defenders.
Robben has scored 19 times for Bayern this season, including five goals in eight Champions League games – and the Dutch winger will be desperate to score against his former employers. Robben will also be on penalty duty should the opportunity arise so the Tipster is backing him to score on Saturday at 6/4.
Bayern boast a 100 per cent record at the Allianz Arena in the Champions League this season, winning all seven of their matches and scoring 21 goals in the process. The Bundesliga side have the fortune of playing the final in their home stadium, and Chelsea have a poor European away record, winning only one of their six games this term. Therefore, Bayern to win in 90 minutes looks an excellent bet at 8/11.
Both sides have scored in five of Bayern’s last six games this season, including their last two Champions League fixtures. Chelsea boast similar stats with both sides scoring in five of their last six. The Blues played six away games in this campaign, with both sides scoring in five of them. Both Bayern and Chelsea are missing key defenders through suspension, so both sides to score looks a good bet at 5/6.
Bayern’s 14 games in Europe this season have produced a total of 38 goals, while Chelsea’s 12 games in the Champions League have seen 34 goals. Both defences will be weakened, with John Terry and Holger Badstuber heading the list of noticeable absentees. But with first-choice strikers fit, attack will likely be the best form of defence at the Allianz Arena on Saturday, so over 2.5 goals looks like an excellent bet at Evens.
Bayern reached the final with a 3-1 victory on penalties over Real Madrid in the second leg of their semi-final at the Bernabéu. During normal time, Robben scored a vital away goal from the spot and the German side dispatched three of their four spot-kicks in the shoot-out. So, the Tipster’s audacious long-range effort for this special edition is for Bayern to score a penalty against Chelsea at 6/1.
