MARIO GÓMEZ: "Of course I don't think we are going to win the Champions League, but with our stadium and our great fans we can win games."
Mario Gómez is quite clear, if Besiktas invest in the team to be competitive in the Champions League next season, then he will stay.
MARIO GÓMEZ: "This is very important for me, we already have a very good team but we need to invest more in the team for Champions League."

Today'$ Big Match : Germany Vs Portugal at 9:30pm tonight Head to Head These two teams played 17 times against each other. Germany won 9, drew 5 and lost 3 times. Portugal scored 16 out of total 41 goals scored. Key Players Germany: Mesut Ozil, Mario Goetze & Philipp Lahm Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe & William Carvalho Prediction of the Match Germany and Portugal will open their respective World Cup campaigns when they meet at Arena Fonte Nova in Salvado on Monday. The big question leading up to this game is whether Real Madrid’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is fit enough to play a 90 minute fixture. The Ballon d’or winner, who played an incredible season domestically, crowned with Champions League victory, missed the first two World Cup friendlies for his country, before making a 60 minute comeback against Ireland last week. CR7 is expected to start in any case, but it remains to be seen if his performance will be up to par. Paulo Bento will need his key player to be in top form should he want to ...

UEFA.com looks back on the first week of the Uefa Champions League and ahead to matchday two with ten of the most interesting statistics. • FC Viktoria Plzeň's game with Manchester City FC was the first Uefa Champions League match to be staged in Plzen. When the Czech club participated in the 2011/12 group stage, they played their three home fixtures at Prague's Stadion Eden. • The Štruncovy Sady Stadión therefore becomes the 142nd venue to stage a Uefa Champions League game; the Stadio Giueseppe Meazza, home of AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano, tops the list with 128 encounters. • Lionel Messi's third goal in FC Barcelona's 4-0 win at home to AFC Ajax was goal No 6,100 in the Uefa Champions League. • Messi is now the player with most hat-tricks in the history of the Uefa Champions League having managed four – one more than Filippo Inzaghi (two for Juventus, one for Milan) and Mario Gomez (three for FC Bayern München). Last week's trebles for Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo take the total n ...
Bayern Munich's striker, Mario Gomez to join Italian side Fiorentina. Will it affect the Champions League winners?

Tottenham Hotspur Transfer News: Gomez in, Gomes out? A select round-up of Transfer News relating to Tottenham Hotspur, including Mario Gomez, Bernard, Heurelho Gomes, Benoit Assout-Ekotto and Alex Kacaniklic. Perhaps the most unexpected rumours of the weekend has seen Bayern Munich’s prolific striker Mario Gomez linked with a £7million move to Tottenham Hotspur. Considering Gomez has been lined with several £25+million moves in the past couple of weeks, unless there is a digit missing in the Metro’s valuation, this looks unlikely to happen. Despite problems with injuries and the form of Mario Mandzukic relegating him to the bench, Gomez managed 19 goals in all competitions for Bayern last season, and if he does leave this summer due to the arrival of Robert Lewandowski, there will be plenty of Champions League clubs in the hunt. A far more likely transfer this summer is that goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes will leave White Hart Lane, with the Brazilian himself saying he needs a move to ensure he is playi ...
Mario Gomez set to leave Bayern (Submitted by Sports Journalist) Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez's agent says that the Germany international will be leaving the Uefa Champions League winners this summer. The 27-year old still has three years remaining on his contract at the Allianz Arena but he has fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of Mario Mandzukic last year. Manchester City, Chelsea and Napoli are believed to be amongst the teams keen on Gomez and his representative, Uli Ferber, confirmed that he is set for a departure from Bayern. "As far as I am concerned, the trend in the matter of Mario is definitely a transfer. He will be leaving Bayern Munich this summer," he told German sports magazine Kicker. Newly-appointed Napoli coach Rafa Benitez has been linked with a bid for the striker, but Gomez's agent Uli Ferber has not held talks with other clubs as he considers his future. "We have never been discussing a transfer with Napoli," Ferber told Stuttgarter Zeitung earlier in the week. ...
Pep Guardiola surely faces the most thankless task in world football after Bayern Munich clinched a historic treble on Saturday, adding the German Cup to the Champions League and Bundesliga crowns. The Spaniard, who was named as Bayern's next coach back in January, will take over a team that has conquered Europe and its domestic rivals, with the 3-2 win over Stuttgart giving the departing Jupp Heynckes a perfect sendoff. The 68-year-old is widely expected to retire, though he has also been linked with a return to Real Madrid -- where he won the Champions League in 1998 -- after guiding the Bavarians to 45 wins from 53 matches this season. Stuttgart never looked like inflicting Bayern's fourth defeat of the campaign after going 3-0 down after an hour, with Thomas Muller netting a first-half penalty and striker Mario Gomez scoring twice against his former club in what could prove to be his final game for Bayern. Read: Bayern the kings of Europe Austrian Martin Harnik struck twice to give Stuttgart hope in f ...
Bayern sink Stuttgart to claim Cup, treble. Bayern Munich completed a historic treble by defeating Stuttgart 3-2 to add the DFB-Pokal trophy to the Uefa Champions League and Bundesliga titles they have already won this season. Thomas Muller fired Bayern in front from the penalty spot and two goals from Mario Gomez gave Jupp Heynckes' side a commanding lead. A brace from Martin Harnik made the game interesting, although Stuttgart could not find an equaliser as Bayern became the first German side to win three major trophies in a single season. Only three minutes were on the clock when Arjen Robben was put through left of goal by Javi Martinez and his cross was deflected just wide of the far post. Stuttgart were not going to be lambs to the slaughter, though, and they showed that with their own spirited attacking football which culminated in Antonio Rudiger's cross being volleyed just inches wide of the far post by Alexandru Maxim with Manuel Neuer beaten. Neuer was in the thick of the action midway through ...
Bayern Munich became the first German club to win the treble by beating Stuttgart 3-2 in a dramatic German Cup final. Bayern appeared to be cruising when a harsh penalty, converted by Thomas Mueller, and two Mario Gomez goals put them 3-0 ahead inside 61 minutes. Stuttgart, hammered 6-1 by the Bavarians in the Bundesliga, then gave them a real scare as Martin Harnik pulled two goals back. Bayern hung on to complete a memorable season and give departing coach Jupp Heynckes the best possible send-off as he ended his third stint in charge to make way for former Barcelona supremo Pep Guardiola. They became the seventh team to win their league, cup and European Cup in the same season, following Inter Milan (2010), Barcelona (2009), Manchester United (1999), PSV Eindhoven (1988), Ajax Amsterdam (1972) and Celtic (1967). Just as in last week's 2-1 Champions League final win over Borussia Dortmund, Manuel Neuer prevented Bayern falling behind with some outstanding goalkeeping. Stuttgart nearly took an early lead ...
Champions League: Borussia Dortmund - Bayern Munich, Mario Mandzukic Arjen Robben buried the demons of finals past with a last-gasp goal to give Bayern Munich the 2012-13 Champions League title with a 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the final at Wembley on Saturday. Dortmund were the superior side during a captivating yet goalless first half, forcing Manuel Neuer into a succession of saves - though opposite number Roman Weidenfeller was also called into action more than once. With an hour gone, Mario Mandzukic put the Bavarians ahead from close range, but a clumsy foul by Dante on Marco Reus allowed Ilkay Gundogan to level the scores from the penalty spot eight minutes later. But with one minute of normal time remaining, Robben stole in to squeeze the ballover the line, and ensure that Bayern took home the trophy that eluded them in 2010 and 2012. Mandzukic shook off competition from Mario Gomez to lead the line for the Bavarians, and in defence, Jerome Boateng edged out Daniel Van Buyten to partner ...
HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW BAYERN Bayern, Jupp Heynckes' side are the top scorers in this season's competition with 29 goals, ahead of RealMadrid (26) and Dortmund (23). Mario Gomez has scored 23 Champions League goals for Bayern, surpassing Giovane Elber's previous club record of 22. Gomez has 26 in total, including three for VfB Stuttgart. Bayern have won 100 corners; 26 more than any other team in this season's competition. The German club have scored 299 goals in the Champions League, group stage to final. They have conceded 399 goals in Uefa competition, scoring 749. David Alaba's quarterfinal, first-leg opener against Juventus was timed at 25.02 seconds, the seventh fastest goal in Champions League history. Claudio Pizarro's 16-minute hat-trick against LOSC Lille on matchday four was the third fastest in Champions League history. Manuel Neuer has played every minute of Bayern's campaign; Thomas Müller has also featured in all 12 games. Miscellaneous Last Saturday, in Heynckes' final Bundesliga game as Ba ...
Nothing Shall Be Left Untouched. Borussia Dortmund ended Bayern Munich's 14-match winning run in the Bundesliga as the warm-up for the Champions League final finished in a fiery 1-1 draw. Bayern had five players booked and full-back Rafinha sent off, while Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp was caught up in a heated exchange with visiting sporting director Matthias Sammer. With Bayern already having won the league title and Dortmund guaranteed a Champions League place next season, a low-key encounter had been expected as both teams prepare for the Champions League final on 25 May. Both teams rested key players for the Wembley showdown - Dortmund, without the injured Mario Gotze, rested the likes of Mats Hummels and Lukasz Piszczek, and Marco Reus only appeared as a late substitute. Bayern were without Philipp Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez, with Thomas Mueller coming off the bench. Dortmund went ahead through Kevin Grosskreutz after 11 minutes, only for Mario Gomez to level after 23 minutes. The ...
LOAN WATCH: Heurelho Gomes faced the mighty Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on Sunday. The goalkeeper currently on loan at Hoffenheim actually captained the team in a 1-0 loss against the runaway leaders. Bayern didn't turn on the style that impressed so much in the Champions League at the Emirates recently, but they still stretched their lead to 17 points from Borussia Dortmund with the only goal of the game from Mario Gomez in the 38th minute. Staying abroad, Bongani Khumalo played 67 minutes as PAOK beat Panionios 4-2 to stay third in the Greek Super League. Yago Falque played 83 minutes as Almeria beat Hercules de Alicante 2-0 in the Segunda Division of La Liga while Souleymane Coulibaly was an unused substitute as Grosseto caused a shock by beating leaders Sassuolo 2-0 in Italy's Serie B. Jon Obika made his first start for Charlton and played 63 minutes as Charlie Austin's screamer won it for visitors Burnley in the Championship. Harry Kane had an eventful game for Leicester at Ipswich. He almost sco ...
Bayern Munich rested half a dozen stars but still romped to a 6-1 win at home to 10-man Werder Bremen on Saturday to go 18 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga. Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes celebrated his 1000th Bundesliga game as a player and coach by making six changes from the team which won 3-1 at Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday. But they still extended their unbeaten run to 20 matches since their last defeat at home to Bayer Leverkusen at the end of October. Amongst the key changes, Germany striker Mario Gomez, who scored twice, came in for Mario Mandzukic, Dutch wing Arjen Robben, who opened the scoring, started for Thomas Mueller while Swiss midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri took Toni Kroos' place.
LONDON (Reuters) - Long-serving Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger can do very little to salvage even pride from what looks like being another trophyless season after Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League home defeat by Bayern Munich. The last-16 first-leg loss exposed the lack of strength in depth which has contributed to the Londoners going out of both domestic cup competitions, lying fifth in the Premier League and looking poised to bow out of Europe. Bundesliga leaders Bayern had the luxury of bringing on Dutch World Cup runner-up Arjen Robben and prolific Germany striker Mario Gomez in the second half but a glance at Arsenal's bench showed no such riches and Wenger's hands are largely tied. The Frenchman, at Arsenal since 1996, failed to bring in attacking quality in the January transfer window and the club look doomed to an eighth season without a trophy, leading fans to question whether they still have the right man in charge. The indefatigable Jack Wilshere is carrying the team almost alone but the midfielder ...
Fun Fact : Mario Gomez scored more goals in last season Champions League than Robin Van Persie did in the last 4 Champions League
Don't know who's going to win the Ballon D'or tonite; but i think Messi doesn't deserve it on the backdrop that he scored 91goals and won d Copa Del Rey only; even though 91 goals is astronomical!... Before i start getting sticks, here's my point; IN 2013, if Van Persie scores 60goals and wins d FA Cup only and Ronaldo scores 40goals and wins d Copa Del Rey and Messi scores 35 goals and wins the Spanish League, and Mario Gomez scores 30 goals and wins the Champions League with Munich, do u all think Van Persie with the MOST number of goals in d calendar year will win it? Will there even be a case for him by the team of world journalists? Therein is my point! Worthy to note, Henrik Larson once scored 52goals and won d double in Scotland and lost the finals of the then UEFA Cup to Jose Mourinho's Porto, yet he was not even in the final 3 of the world best that year...

Augsburg vs Bayern Munich Missing Players Augsburg Matthias Ostrzolek Simon Jentzsch Dominik Reinhardt Paul Verhaegh Bayern Munich Luiz Gustavo Emre Can Holger Badstuber Arjen Robben Team News Augsburg Simon Jentzsch is still injured so Mohamed Amsif will play in goal. Gibril Sankoh and Sebastian Langkamp compete for a spot at centre-back, with the former probably ahead in the manager's rankings. Kevin Vogt returns to the starting line-up to replace the injured Paul Verhaegh at right-back. Ja-Cheol Koo will most likely switch to the centre again, with Milan Petrzela filling in on the right wing. Bayern Munich Jerome Boateng will probably replace the injured Holger Badstuber at centre-back. Javi Martinez will return to the starting eleven after being rested in the Champions League during the week. Mario Mandzukic, who has been rested as well, will most likely start ahead of Mario Gomez and Claudio Pizarro up front.

UCL:- Jupp Heynckes believes Bayern Munich were full value for their 4-1 win over BATE Borisov on Wednesday night. Despite going down to 10 men early in the second-half, the Germans prevailed thanks to strikes from Mario Gomez, Thomas Muller, Xherdan Shaqiri and David Alaba, sealing both a commanding success and top spot in Group E. "I'm obviously very satisfied because the priority was to win and make sure of first place [in our group]," the coach told reporters. "The team were very determined and very alert. We conceded almost nothing in defence. Overall, it was an authoritative display. "All credit to my team because the Champions League is such a difficult competition - the runners-up are all very strong. That means it’s good we’re away from home in the first-leg." Gomez broke Bayern's duck at the Allianz Arena to further his tally to two goals since his comeback from injury five matches ago, and he feels he is regaining his sharpness in the penalty box. "I knew that I would struggle a bit after s ...
It's a great day to be a Bayern fan! Bayern Munich advances from the group stage of the Champions League this afternoon after a 4:1 victory over Belarusian side BATE Borisov. Goals for the day came from Mario Gomez, Thomas Müller, Xherdan Shaqiri, and David Alaba. The draw for the next round of the Champions League will be on December 21st at 2am San Diego time! Cross your fingers for an early Christmas present!
-Arsenal lose a Champions League group game at home for the first time since 2003. -In the last 3 seasons, only Mario Gomez (54) has scored more Bundesliga goals than Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (40) -Man City have only won 3 champions league games in their entire history. United have won 3 CL games this season already.
Bayern Munich - Hoffenheim Preview: Bavarians look to bounce back from Champions League shock Jupp Heynckes' side saw their winning start to the season ended abruptly by BATE in Europe on Tuesday but can take heart from their 7-1 thrashing of Saturday's guests in March. Bayern suffered a humilating loss to BATE Borisov in midweek, and have been further taxed by the news that Franck Ribery is likely to miss this clash, while Arjen Robben has still not recovered from the problem that forced him to miss the trip to Minsk. Accordingly, Thomas Muller will continue on the right wing, with Xherdan Shaqiri slotting in on the left, with Toni Kroos playing as a No.10. However, long-term absentees David Alaba and Mario Gomez are still working their way back to fitness after their respective pre-season foot and ankle injuries, allowing Holger Badstuber to keep his place at left-back and Mario Mandzukic to start up front, despite Claudio Pizarro featuring against Werder Bremen. Injuries and suspension, meanwhile, have ...

Mario Gomez was involved in 53.8% of Bayern Munich's goals in the Champions League last term
For those with Fox Soccer Channel, Mario Gomez is about to score the fastest hat-trick in Champions League history.
With a goal and an assist in the final six minutes of Spain's 4-0 win against Italy in the Euro 2012 final, Fernando Torres won himself the tournament's Golden Boot and probably made more than a few people choke on their own tongues. Though Torres only started two of six matches for Spain, it was that fact that actually won him the award. With three goals and one assist, Torres was even with Mario Gomez, but won on the next tie breaker, which is fewer minutes played (Gomez played 281 minutes, Torres 189). So to cap off a season that included "the worst moments of my career" according to Torres himself, he wins a Golden Boot and a third straight major title with Spain just two months after he won the Champions League and FA Cup with Chelsea. If the Ballon d'Or were solely based on winning trophies and confusing one's detractors to the point of inducing seizures in a given year and not so much about silly things like consistent individual production, Fernando Torres would have that sucker wrapped up right n ...
Torres scored his third goal of the Euro 2012 in the final to win the Golden Boot award despite being on par with a bagful of other players - Mario Balotelli of Italy, Alan Dzagoev of Russia, Mario Mandzukic of Croatia and Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal. Torres also had an assist against his name. Torres finished with 3 goals and an assist in the tournament and was on par with German sensation Mario Gomez. What was in "El Nino's" favour though was the fewer minutes he had spent on the football field. He was in the starting line up for only one game in the tournament, that against the Republic of Ireland where he got a brace. Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Negredo got the nod ahead of him in the other fixtures of Spain. In the final against Italy, Spain were already in the ascendancy when Torres was called on by Del Bosque. Italy's chances were all but over when Thiago Motta was stretchered off when the Azzurri had already made their three substitutions. Torres was then joined in the party by his Chelsea teammate ...
Goal.com UK shared the following link and had this to say about it: Mario Gomez admitted that the 2-1 defeat to Italy was like a fourth punch in the face for the Bayern Munich players in the Germany squad. The Bavarians have lost out in the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League already this season.
Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez finished the campaign as runner-up following his 12 goals in 12 appearances.Real Madrid duo Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Chelsea's Didier Drogba complete the top five with 10, seven and six goals respectively.
Rugby Cricket Football Golf F1 Tennis Boxing Other Sports Gomez: Why I should change? Germany striker Mario Gomez sees no reason why he should change his playing style after being second only to Lionel Messi in the Champions League goalscoring charts this past season. Gomez netted his country’s only goal in their 1-0 defeat of Portugal on Saturday but former Germany international Mehmet Scholl has criticized his performance. Scholl, who picked up 36 caps for Die Mannschaft from 1995-2007, and who is currently working as a pundit for broadcaster ARD, insists he is a fan of the 26-year-old striker, but has challenged him to improve his game. He said: “I have seen him run more (than against Portugal), but seldom less. If he did much, much more work, he would get even more chances and score more goals.” But Gomez responded by saying: “With Mehmet and me, there is a story there. “Mehmet spoke to me before at the Oktoberfest. He told me: ‘I know what you think about me. Since I have been an expert ( ...

"Germany will win because they don't have Arjen Robben and Mario Gomez will use more hair product than he did in the Champions League final"
My opinion was merged before and after the game for Champions League final The Bayern Munich is the Favorite to win the title for several reasons and the first is that the game is in the Allianz Arena but also I think that the Chelsea is not easy to beat they achieved with David De Matthew to become strong Defensive team regardless of the attractiveness of the game coach DDM in every game he get what he wants. If we review the game of German cup final the Bayern against Burosia Dortmend and weaknesses in the Baiern team, Defensively in the center back and offensively in Slow of attack preparation also the ticktics they used was complicated. They improved a little in the final but not very much and were unable to create chances for two unlucky and inefficient attackers Mario Gomez and Thomas Muller as Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery were repeated in every attack same complicated methodology to create chances for attackers. Holger Badstuber, David Alaba and Luiz Gustavo were big loss. Footbal ...

Barca could not break them; neither could suspensions, including John Terry’s; nor playing Bayern on their home patch; nor going behind with seven minutes left. Having somehow dug out an equaliser to force extra-time through - who else? - Didier Drogba, Chelsea would not be shaken by a further trauma: when Drogba tripped Franck Ribery to concede a penalty, Petr Cech plunged magnificently to stop Arjen Robben’s spot kick. The 30 minutes of extra-time were like the 90 minutes preceding them: Bayern in possession, on the attack, but Chelsea - with Gary Cahill making an extraordinary diving block to thwart Mario Gomez - somehow still on terms. Then came that old enemy, the penalty shootout. Chelsea don’t win those; the Germans never lose them. Except there has been something other-worldly about this campaign in general and Chelsea in the Champions League particularly. Logic was not among the participants of season 2011-12.
Chelsea avenged penalty heartbreak in Moscow with a shootout victory of their own to win an exhiliarating Champions League final against Bayern Munich. Didier Drogba was the man to exorcise the demons of that sodden night in Russia, forcing extra-time with an 88th-minute header that made it 1-1 before striking the decisive spot-kick to sate owner Roman Abramovich's greatest craving. Roberto Di Matteo - whose future remains inconceivably unclear - must have felt the pull of destiny as he watched Drogba drag his side back from the brink and then old boy Arjen Robben miss an extra-time penalty. Chelsea unashamedly followed their Barcelona blueprint but Bayern, who seemed set for an historic win at their own ground when Thomas Muller broke the deadlock on 83, only had their own profligacy to blame. The Blues had needed 37 minutes to fashion a real chance while Mario Gomez miscued and miscontrolled at the other end, as Robben drove high, wide and against a post. The interval came and went, Bayern reward still ...
Lionel Messi beat Mario Gomez and Cristiano Ronaldo to the top spot on the Champions League scoring chart this term following his 14 strikes throughout the season.
Bayern Munich 1-1 Chelsea (aet, 3-4 on penalties): Blues crowned kings of Europe for first time after thrilling shoot-out in Bavaria Two late goals in regulation and a missed Robben penalty in extra time sent the final to penalties, where Didier Drogba struck the decisive kick from 12 yards out By Keeghann Sinanan May 19, 2012 10:30:00 PM Chelsea have won the 2011-12 Champions League after a gripping 4-3 win over Bayern Munich on penalties at the Allianz Arena. Bayern set up camp in the Chelsea half for the majority of the match, but were extremely wasteful in front of goal, passing up a number of opportunities that allowed Roberto Di Matteo's men to stay in the contest. Thomas Muller looked to have finally broken their resistance when he scored in the 83rd minute, but Didier Drogba brought the Blues back from the dead with a powerful header two minutes from the end to send the final into extra time. Arjen Robben saw a soft penalty saved by Petr Cech in the 95th minute, but there was no winner in the addi ...

Chelsea won the Champions League final on German soil as they beat Bayern Munich 4-3 on penalties after the game finished 1-1 in normal time. Bayern had much the better of the game, missed numerous chances in the first-half and were made to wait until the 83rd minute for the opener when Thomas Muller appeared at the back post to head past Petr Cech. Despite a lack of ambition until then, Chelsea were not done and equalised in a thrilling finale when Didier Drogba headed home from the Blues' first corner of the game with two minutes left to go. Drogba almost turned from hero to villain as he tripped Franck Ribery in the box in the first period of extra-time but Cech saved Arjen Robben's penalty low down to his left. The rest of the game yielded no goals and it was left to penalties to decide the winner. It looked like Chelsea would lose the shootout as Juan Mata missed, but Ivica Olic - with his last kick as a Bayern Munich player - and Bastian Schweinsteiger missed and Drogba stroked home for glory.

Champions League final: Mario Gomez to score first goal 9/2 general and 13/10 with Bet Victor and Paddy Power to be on target
Chelsea's date with destiny: the occasion when their Roman empire can finally achieve its aim. Comrade Abramovich fell in love with football when famously watching a Champions League match and everything since arriving at Stamford Bridge has been aimed at the lifting of that famously oversized trophy, the European Cup. He has been within an inch of the post, a slip of Luzhniki sod, and for a time that had looked like his last chance. An ever-revolving cast-list of coaches has been and gone since John Terry's moment of truth in Moscow. Since then, the players who took them to the brink of a dream becoming reality have aged and agued. This was supposed to be a season of rebuilding. A young coach with new ideas was hired to sweep out the old guard. Yet they remain, and Andre Villas-Boas is jobless, only recently reappearing as a possible suitor for the vacant Liverpool position. Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, Ashley Cole and Petr Cech take their place, but the suspended Terry will not, as penance for his stup ...
Marko Marin has backed his new side Chelsea to beat Bayern Munich in Saturday's Champions League final. - Neuer cautious but confident Marin, 23, is to join Chelsea from Werder Bremen this summer and will be a keen observer when the Blues meet Bayern at the Allianz Arena this weekend. The winger feels Chelsea's "better players'' will expose Bayern's defence after he watched Borussia Dortmund thrash the Bavarians 5-2 in last week's DFB-Pokal final. Asked if their defence was weak, he told BBC Sport: "Yes. I watched the German Cup final. They made big errors. Chelsea have better players and will do well if they play offensively. "I think (Chelsea) will win at the weekend. Bayern did a very good job against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final, but they did not do well in the Cup final." But Marin was also wary of the attacking threat of Bayern. "I think the strongest Bayern player is Franck Ribery because of his dribbling and because he's a goal threat,'' he said. "There's also Mario Gomez. He's s ...

Mario Gomez smash and grab stuns Real Madrid as Bayern Munich win Champions League first-leg clash 2-1
Obviously, in Uefa Champions League, home advantage means much less in the Finals because the tickets are allocated equally between home and away fans (17,500 each); the remaining 21,000 are allocated to neutrals and UEFA nobs. Given the greater propensity of English fans to buy on the black market, Chelsea might even end up with a majority. That notwithstanding, Bayern have got what it takes to triumph over their rival - Chelsea. Let’s see how Chelsea’s only hope (Drogba) beats Jerome Boateng, Philipp Lahm, one of the finest attacking full-backs in world football, and the most laughable, how Jose Bosingwa contains the devastating performance of Arjen Robben, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Franck Ribery, Toni Kroos and Mario Gomez, who is one of the most feared strikers in Europe with 12 goals in champions league, second only to Lionel Messi. Sure, I give it to Bayern! Just being objective & not joining issues with any fans!
