For Inter boss, Jose Mourinho, this could be his last game in charge with rumours rife that he will be the next boss at the Bernabeu, however he will not let rumours stand in the way of plotting the downfall of Bayern in this match, he will want to leave on a winning note and rectify years of Inter Milan failure in this competition.
Mourinho will almost certainly build his team from a strong defensive foundation, but he has players of the calibre of Wesley Sneijder in midfield, who is capable of turning defence into irresistible attack with just one pass. He also has the Diego Milito up front who is in tremendous form at the moment as he showed when scoring the goal that secured Seria A, a couple of weeks ago as well as the goal that won Inter the Italian Cup last week. Milito in fact is a 5/2 chance with Paddy Power to score the first goal for his team during the match and is also the 9/2 favourite with the same Bookmaker to score the first goal in the match.
The German champions received a setback when they failed to overturn the ban on winger Frank Ribery, who will now miss the match, leaving them to rely even more heavily on the sublime, Arjen Robben, who not only will he playing on his old ground, but he will also be playing against Mourinho, who was his boss at Chelsea. This in theory at least, should provide the ‘Dutchman’ with plenty of motivation, which is why he is as short as 16/5, once again with Paddy power to score the first goal for Bayern in the final. The tireless Bayern striker, Ivica Olic, who has netted several important goals for Bayern this season, including a hat-trick in the semi final against Lyon, also looks a good bet to score and has been priced at 13/2 to score the opening goal in the match.

It is true that this was not the expected final at the outset of the tournament, but nonetheless it will be played by two teams who have been superbly managed this season. Predicting the outcome of it is almost foolish, but it strikes us that destiny may play a part, which is why we think that Mourinho and his Inter team will come out on top. We take them to win the match by 1-0 and would back that at 11/2 with PaddyPower
