<2.30> <2.70> <3.10>

manu should be on a high heading into this one, considering they have after all, just won the epl for the second time in a row. however, i think that at the back of their heads, they fear chelsea. with most of the squad heading off in different directions, i see this as being the last hurrah for chelsea. in any case, both teams are very even, and any of the three outcomes (manu win, chelsea win, draw) could happen. as such, i see 3.10 being outstanding value for chelsea to triumph in 90min. also, everyone has predicted this as a tight game with few goals. however, i think that this match has the potential to be a firecracker, with goals from both sides, as the quality on show is truly amazing. over 2.5 is a good shot, especially considering the odds. another bet u can try is ronaldo notching the first goal in the game. he is an oustanding and very selfish goalscorer, and as such, odds of 5.oo are unignorable for him.

- Eddy's prediction: $5 on chelsea @ 3.10 = $15.50
$5 on SPECIAL total goals over 2.5 @ 2.55 = $12.75
$5 on SPECIAL ronaldo to be first goalscorer @ 5.00 = $25.00

I think that I'll have to disagree with Eddy on this one. Sir Alex Ferguson will want to secure a second Champions League trophy and will play it cagey in this one. Chelsea's players will be slightly overawed by the occasion, but still very amped up for this one as it's the first time that Chelsea is in the Champions League final. I expect a very cagey match from both teams as both do not want to lose. I think experience counts a lot in this one and I think Man Utd just have the edge and will win in the end. Ronaldo @ 5.00 is also unignorable as Cashley Cole seems to have been injured by Makelele during training, and we all know how Cashley Cole has stopped Ronaldo in recent matches. Without Cashley Cole, I doubt Bridge can handle Ronnie well.

- Roland's prediction: $10 on Man Utd eventual champions @ 1.75 = $17.50
$5 on SPECIAL Ronaldo first goalscorer @ 5.00 = $25.00
