Twitter users predict the winner

As the Twittosphere swells with talk of tonight’s Champions League final between Chelsea and Bayern Munich, we asked some the more prolific fans who they are backing to win.


Some of the more recognised football fan Tweeters were asked to give their view of the big match in Munich in partneship with Yahoo! Eurosport.

@DarrenArsenal1 in England, @Tarmasinov in Russia, @markingegno in Italy, @AlbertineG in France, @redrobbery in Germany and Spanish pair @martiperarnau and @Borja_Pardo are all involved in this special collaboration on Twitter with @YahooEurosport, and also encouraged to Tweet the hashtag #ChampionsEurosport.

And these are their views on tonight’s match...

"A lot of these players will be turning out for Chelsea for the last time in Munich. It’s their last chance and I think they’ll do it."

@Tarmasinov (Russia, 734 followers)

"I predict Bayern to score a couple of goals, but I think Chelsea will also score. This is a final, so a scoreline bigger than 2-1 is unlikely. Bayern got less praise for beating Real Madrid than Chelsea did for beating Barcelona which could have an impact. So I will go for a 2-1 win for Bayern."

@Borja_Pardo (Spain, 10,924 followers)

"Bayern are favourites because they are playing at their own stadium, while Chelsea have many suspensions. Nevertheless I feel Chelsea will win."

@Martiperarnau (Spain, 29,743 followers)

"Bayern have scored in every home Champions League match they have played this season – but Chelsea have scored in every match! I predict a 1-1 draw and penalties."

@Markingegno (Italy, 4,569 followers)

"I want Roberto Di Matteo to win the Champions League final after the FA Cup. Come on Chelsea!"

@AlbertineG (France, 1,654 followers)

“Bayern cannot afford to lose another final in three years, and also in their stadium. They must go for it and win."

@Redrobbery (Germany, 3,443 followers)

"It’s a unique opportunity and the motivation will be extraordinary. The desire is strong. Bayern will win the final."
