Champions League Final - Bayern v Dortmund
Just 9 months ago, 32 teams were dreaming of walking out from beneath Wembley's famous arch to compete in the actual Champions League final.
There have been thrills, spills and shocks along the way and plenty of chances to use bookies free bets but just two teams remain with the final match, Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund, taking place on Saturday 25th of May.
Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund
After beating Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona it’s an all German final with Bayern and Dortmund fighting it out to lift the Champions League trophy.
So who do the online bookies think will come out on top? and how should you use the free bets that they're all offering for the Champions League final?
Currently PaddyPower offer the best odds for a Bayern Munich win at 5/6 and Bet Victor offering the best odds for those betting on Dortmund with 15/4 for the win and 3/1 the draw.
There's loads of Champions League final betting markets, so why not use a betting offer on who'll score the 1st goal, or predict the correct score at the end of the Champions League final.
Whoever wins, Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund looks like being a one of the most bet on and best Champions League final matches in years!
All German Champions League Final
It’s also the first Champions League final to feature two German sides. So, if you used a bookies offer to predict that, then you’re already well on top. Neither team are strangers to the Champions League final.
This will be Bayern's third final in four years, and after being beaten by Inter Milan and Chelsea they will want to get it right this time. They last won the European Cup 12 years ago when they beat Valencia in an exciting penalty shoot-out.
Can they do it this time and should you chance a free bet on them walking away victorious?
Dortmund will of course have other ideas and should not be ruled out when in comes to placing free bet offers. Nearly all online bookies are aware they're European past-masters, having won the competition back in 1997 and managed back-to-back Bundesliga titles before a strong Bayern side reclaimed the title this season.
This seasons Champions League has been a fairy tale run for them and there’s no doubt that the teams are bitter rivals. But how will that rivalry affect their game, and should you get in on the magic by backing Dortmund with free bets?
Mario Götze adds an extra ingredient to the betting mix after he announced his departure from Dortmund next season. He’ll be playing for Munich next year after signing a £31 million contract just a few weeks ago.
Of course, he might not be fit after hurting his thigh during the second leg of the semi-final against Real Madrid. He’s a professional, so if he does play he should play to win. But are you prepared to trust him with Champions League free bets?
It was clear that much of Bayern's success against Barcelona came because they had Martinez and Schweinsteiger sitting in front of the back four. Bayern paid the largest fee in Bundesliga history for Martinez, and so far, he's been worth every euro.
We reckon he's probably worth a punt or two using some of the free bet offers bookies are offering on the final especially as an outsider in the first goalscorer market due to the great odds bookies offer.
