If Bayern get through they are favourites. They'll be playing the final at home. Chelsea have a bare bones defence-- Robben and Ribery are gonna take some stopping. They are in deep ****, no thanks to that idiot John Terry.
However, I still think Real are going through tonight. They'll be a little too strong I think. COnfidence is high having beaten Barcelona at the weekend and partially secured the league title.
Both teams are in exceptional form this season and it will definitely be a tough game to call. However, I beleive that Real will be want to produce a world-class performance after their Spanish rivals lost to them and a place in the Champions League final last night. I think that Real have the tougher job tonight because Bayern will score an away goal, Real have been letting in goals all season at home. So the likes of Benzema, Ronaldo, and Higuain need to make the most of every chance they get.
Will update post when the team sheets are released later...
I think the team selections are straight forward, they won't be risking it with resting players, Bayern in fact have no reason to rest a soul and Real have basically won the La Liga.
Real Madrid are on fire, you could see they really believe they'll do it this year, I'm going for a risky prediction here that may backfire but I can see Bayern getting humbled; I don't particularly think their team is so much worse, I did think they were capable of a 2-1 victory at home but the win. But Madrid's victory over Barca plus watching them lose last night will fire them up. Mourinho also won't pass up an opportunity to show abramovich what he is missing.
Bayern on the other hand have problems in the dressing room, have not won the Bundesliga again this year and they only have themselves to blame. Their quality mainly lies in their on-off performers who I think won't step up to the plate.

Why does the OP look like a tit for spelling something right?
ah, it was the "you" of "one" rather than of specifically the OP, and the "saying" of "saying" rather than of writing. I've never heard someone say "Bayern München" in the context of English conversation, even Germans anglicise it as the commentators will tonight. The puzzler, then, was only why we do this but don't do the same for Real (=Royal) Madrid.
Both teams have amazing attacks, and suspect defences.. while on paper real madrids defence is better, bayern's played well at home, but they are a team that haven't done very well away. I'd like to see bayern munich go through but i don't see it happening.
