Bayern Munich and Chelsea will face off in the 2012 Champions League Final this weekend. Today on the blog Andrew delivers 10 betting facts for you to consider before you place your bets.
Bayern have won 25 of their last 35 home Champions League matches, including 13 of their last 14. The sole loss over that span was a 2-3 loss to Inter last season. Meanwhile, Chelsea have won 12 of their last 41 away Champions League matches, only able to win once in their last 7 trips away.
Chelsea have scored in each of their last 13 Champions League matches scoring at least 2 goals in 6 of those contests. Despite such an impressive scoring run, Chelsea have won just 7 of those 13 matches, conceding goals on 8 occasions.
Bayern have drawn just once in their last 31 Champions League matches. That came this season against Napoli, a 1-1 result. During that span they have won 20 and lost 10. In their 25 matches previous to that, they drew on 10 occasions. Meanwhile Chelsea have drawn in 6 of their last 30 Champions League matches, winning 16 and losing 8 across that span.
Over the last 8 Champions League season, the home club has been favoured to win between odds of 1.70 and 2.00 on 135 occasions, winning 71 of those contests for a win profitability of -3.7% while visiting clubs in those matches have won just 24 times for a win profitability of -18%. Further, 40 of those 135 matches ended in a draw for a profitability of +3.3%. Lastly, of those 135 matches, just 55 ended with at least 3 goals scored with just 24 of the 40 drawn results seeing at least 2 goals scored.
In their last 87 Champions League matches, Chelsea have played away at odds of greater than 3.00 on just 13 occasions. They managed to win three of those contests for an even stakes profitability of -20% while losing five and drawing the remaining five.
12 of Bayern's last 20 home Champions League matches have seen at least 3 goals scored including 7 of their last 9. In fact 24 of their last 39 overall Champions League matches have seen at least 3 goals scored. Meanwhile, only 16 of Chelsea's last 38 away Champions League matches have seen at least 3 goals scored.
Bayern have been odds of 2.00 or less to win in 23 of their last 35 Champions League home matches. They have won 19 of those matches for an even stakes profitability of 18%, losing twice and drawing also on two occasions. Further, these matches finished with at least 3 goals scored in 14 of 23 matches played.
Both teams have scored in 17 of Bayern's last 35 home Champions League matches. However, in their last 34 Champions League matches where they were odds of 2.00 or less to win, either at home or away, both clubs have scored in just 11 of those 34 matches played. Meanwhile, both clubs have scored in 15 of Chelsea's last 23 away Champions League matches.
Bayern will be the 4th club to play the “European Cup” final in their home stadium. You have to go back a fair way to find the previous three : Real Madrid in 1957 winning 2-0 at home to Fiorentina, Inter in 1965 winning 1-0 to Benfica and Roma in 1984 who were defeated by Liverpool following a penalty shootout.
Bayern have faced English clubs on 17 occasions since the European Cup became the Champions League, winning 7 of those contests while losing 5 times and drawing the remaining 5. Meanwhile Chelsea have faced German clubs on 12 occasions, winning 6 while losing 4 and drawing the remaining 2.
