Di Matteo predicts tight game
Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo believes the destiny of the Champions League trophy is "50/50".
The Italian is preparing his side for their second Champions League final as they bid to win the trophy for the first time. Bayern meanwhile are hoping to become European Champions for the fifth time in their history and have the advantage of playing on their home ground. However, Di Matteo has dismissed suggestions that his players will be at a disadvantage because the game is in Munich. The former Chelsea midfielder is predicting a tight and tense game, although he has warned his defenders to stay alert given the firepower contained in the Bayern ranks. "I don't think either team is going to open up straight away," said the 41-year-old. "Bayern will feel they are playing at home, they know the environment, but I don't think there are any favourites. It's 50-50. It's there for both teams to grab. "Our defensive organisation has to be right to cope with Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery. But Bayern also have Mario Gomez, who has scored 41 goals. Thomas Muller is a threat as well. They have midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger and Toni Kroos who can score."
