Bayern Munich Vs Borussia Dortmund: Champions League Final

May 24, 2013   //   by markus   //   News  //  Comments Off

As the season closes we all look to the big final that is yet to be settled in an all German Final at Wembley between favourites Bayern Munich Vs Borussia Dormund who have impressed in this competition.

We begin with the under dogs Borussia Dortmund who have been immense throughout this competition who were on the edge of leaving the competition until two late goals saved them from an exit and they also impressively beat Real Madrid at home 4-1 and won over the two legs to find themselves in the final. Recently they found out that one of their top players Mario Gotze will be missing from the team following an injury and coincidently has agreed a deal to join Bayern Munich in the summer. Although they are missing Gotze they still have big players in Reus and Lewandowski who can make the difference.

Following Bayern Munich’s upset last year where they lost to Chelsea on penalties at their home ground they will be looking to put that behind them and make up for the lost and destroy Borussia Dortmund as strong favourites in this final and after their demolition job on Barcelona it seems that they are they have shifted the European kings on their side and have been amazing throughout the competition beating the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Barcelona.

I’m going to have to go with Bayern Munich, the strength and depth they have throughout the team is far superior to Borussia Dortmund but we mustn’t rule out their opponents who can be very deadly on the counter.

 

FA Cup Final Preview: Wigan Vs Manchester City

May 10, 2013   //   by markus   //   News  //  Comments Off

Manchester City will go into this game as firm favourites with the calibre of players they’ve got but this is a final and anything can happen and all players on the field will be up for the challenge.

Manchester City have seen a dip in form recently in the premier league having lost out on the title to their rivals Manchester united and have seen a defeat to Tottenham and a poor draw with Swansea at home but with the players they have they are sure to be motivated for this one and have quality in all areas of the field.

Wigan Athletic currently fighting relegation sitting in 18th and there performances have been impressive in terms of attacking but defensively they have let themselves down and struggle to play Martinez’s style of play and it will be difficult for them to hold out Manchester city. But if they can fix up their defence in time they may have a good chance because going forward they are a threat with Kone impressing all season.

I think this game has an inevitable result and there will only be one winner in Manchester City they just have too much quality throughout their team the only way they will lose is if they take Wigan for granted but even so I still think it will be extremely hard for Wigan to deal with City’s quality players in Aguero, Tevez, Silva and Toure.
