Just over 12 months ago these sides played in a much bigger European final, the 2012 Champions League final, with the Blues coming out on top after a penalty shootout. The bookmakers do not expect a similar result here, with the German side odds-on at 4/5 with William Hill to win inside 90 minutes and their pre-season form has been stunning.

Mourinho’s Chelsea can be backed at betting odds of 4/1 with Pinnacle to win in 90 minutes but if they are to triumph it is more likely to be after a draw, available at 3/1, also with Pinnacle. However, despite what Chelsea’s new manager brings to the equation Bayern should be simply too good for the English club.

Bayern were a remarkable side last season and the way they humiliated Guardiola’s old club Barcelona in the semi-finals will live long in the memory. However, the scary thing is that Bayern’s young squad will only improve and moreover Guardiola is the perfect man to help them do so. Throw in the €37m addition of Mario Gotze and the €22m signing of Thiago Alcantara and odds of 4/5 for them to beat Chelsea look like a fabulous bet.
