Our man-in-the-know is predicting Bayern and Chelsea both to score at the Stadion Eden, but reckons the Premier League outfit can grab a winner.
Also in this edition, find out why you should back Thomas Mueller to beat Petr Cech – again, and why a draw at half-time and Chelsea to emerge victorious in the second half is worth a punt.
José Mourinho opted against starting a recognised striker in a goalless draw with Manchester United on Monday, so it’s anyone’s guess who will line up against Bayern. However, Lampard is almost certain to be handed a starting berth. The midfielder will be on free-kicks and penalties, and coupled with his late bursts into the box, Lampard to score any time in Bayern v Chelsea is very tempting at 4/1.
Pep Guardiola and Mourinho are set to renew rivalries on Friday night. It should be a tight game between two very well-organised sides. However, Bayern are missing key men in the form of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez, as well as Thiago Alcantara and Holger Badstuber. With Chelsea at full strength aside from David Luiz, who is a doubt, the Tipster fancies the Blues to edge this one at outstanding odds of 4/1.
Who can forget the last time these two sides met? Not Blues supporters, that’s for sure! Whilst that game was goalless for the best part of 82 minutes, Thomas Mueller and Didier Drogba both scored dramatic late goals. Bayern and Chelsea are two high-scoring teams, so it’s difficult to see either side keeping a clean sheet. Both sides to score is worth a punt at 4/6.
Mueller has always been the man for the big occasion despite his relatively young football career. The Germany international almost broke Chelsea hearts in Munich in 2012 with his late headed goal. The 23-year-old has one goal and two assists in four appearances for club and country in August. Mueller is 13/5 to score any time in Prague.
As already stated in this Super Cup edition, the Tipster expects a very close showpiece in Prague. Going on the Champions League final in 2012, it would be no surprise to see a stalemate in the first half, with one side potentially nicking it after the interval. For that reason, the Tispter is backing the draw at half-time and Chelsea to emerge as winners in normal time at brilliant odds of 9/1.
